'The People We Hate at the Wedding' on Amazon Prime

I was looking forward to this, mostly because of Alison Janney but it's gotten mediocre-to-stinko reviews.

Anyone watched it?

Wow, who’s the hot guy there? Might watch just for him.

That's DL fave Allison Janney, R1.

Gosh, Allison J. must be the busiest woman in Hollywood right now. It felt like only yesterday I saw her in that action movie, Lou.

Does she have some deadly illness, and she tries to make as much money as possible before she's too ill to work?

OP here. I got through 15 minutes of this last night before turning it off.

I think there's enough LGB representation now that we're just ignoring bad LGB projects like the "Queer as Folk" reboot and this thing.

It was a snore. Woke and such a waste of a perfectly good Allison Janney. Kristin Bell is too stubby looking to be taken seriously, even playing the straight man in a comedy. Only watch as background noise while multi tasking. I recommend the six episode western, English. It's much better.

I love Allison Janney and god knows Dustin Milligan is beautiful - but this looks really bad.

Appropriate casting since Ben Platt is one of the people WE hate.

I quite like it. Fun movie. The way the dinner rehearsal goes down is hilarious. The "threesome" is a funny scene as well.

Sort of spoiler. Ben Platt's real life boyfriend Noah Galvin is featured in the end credits in a Polaroid titled "true *heart*!" Aw.

True love? I thought they broke up. How embarrassing that it’s immortalized in this film as true love.

WTF is this? We know Ben can’t play straight, but why can’t he play gay? I thought Kristen was in her 50s at least, especially with all the desperate preventative plastic surgery, but shockingly she’s only 42. Yet, she’s supposed to be the younger sister, but the actress who supposed to be a few years older is 37. So far there’s no information why the 37 year old is getting married this late in life. I thought Alison was in her 70s, but she’s younger. Shockingly, Dustin is 37, but could pass for late 20s, that Canadian lifestyle preserves one so well I guess. Who put this together, why the British angle and the French husband. Also the diversity seems forced.

R10, they didn't break up.

It’s not great but it was entertaining enough. Has so much potential to be better, though, so disappointing.

by Anonymousreply 13November 23, 2022 7:33 PM

Wait, why is leading actress Lizzy Caplan reduced to basically a cameo here?

by Anonymousreply 14November 23, 2022 8:34 PM

I loved how Lezzy Caplan put on Kristen’s underwear for her.

by Anonymousreply 15November 23, 2022 9:05 PM

Wait, this was based on a book by a gay author? If the movie was this bad, I can’t imagine how much worse the novel was.

Watched it and thought it was good. Not great but certainly not bad.

by Anonymousreply 17November 30, 2022 5:26 AM

It was written by two frau sisters who are writers on Bob’s Burgers and Deadpool 3.

Kristen Bell always plays unlikable characters. I couldn't stand her whiny neediness in Bridesmaids.

I watched it last week when I was in bed with a flu.

I love a good romcom. This was not a good romcom.

The daddy in the three way scene was hot. So there was that.

by Anonymousreply 20November 30, 2022 8:54 AM

It was not good.
