"Every wedding-themed romantic comedy in one movie!" That's the unofficial tag line for the new star-packed film, "The Big Wedding", out Friday. They've really packed it in with this one. They've got your quirky parents (Diane Keaton and Robert Deniro) with romantic baggage and a secret that will totally be exposed, a pretty blonde society bride (Amanda Seyfried), a mother-in-law who everyone's afraid of, a guy who falls in love too fast (Topher Grace), a wacky priest (Robin Williams, at your service), and a pregnant, disgruntled Katherine Heigl. It sounds like they've got it covered. Well, almost.
If you're really following the marriage movie recipe, it's not just about the main characters but the side players too. Behold, the six people you meet in wedding movie heaven.
#1: THE WISE OLD MAN WHO CUTS THE B.S. WITH ONE "LIFE IS TOO SHORT" SPEECH
#2: THE FLAMBOYANTLY FOREIGN WEDDING PLANNER WHO HAS ONLY ONE CLIENT
#3: THE ICE QUEEN WHO MAKES EMOTIONAL, POOR, OR UNDER-DRESSED YOUNG WOMEN FEEL INSECURE
#4: THE BRIDE (OR GROOM) WHO TOTALLY DOESN'T DESERVE TO BE GETTING MARRIED
#5: THE BEST FRIEND WHO DOESN'T NOTICE HER FRIENDSHIP IS VERY ONE-SIDED
#6: THIS LADY
