Painfully bad ensemble drama that centres around the impending commitment ceremony of a gay couple. They’re excited about their day, though they can’t help but point out the injustice of the fact that they cannot call it a wedding, but the real treat is yet to come: family from both sides are soon to arrive, and these guests are bringing all of their emotional baggage with them. Bad marriages, dead children, sibling resentment, it’s all going to be on display, but thankfully not in front of any strangers (one character points out that the couple are having a separate party for their friends, a surefire explanation that helped keep the budget low for the filmmakers). Of course, without a crowd to be embarrassed in front of, there’s really very little at stake. Add to that the fact that the film features awkward direction, bad lighting, weak performances and a bad screenplay, and you basically have garbage that should be avoided at all costs.
