In the movie there were many funny parts but the story of the movie was too see-through in some parts and it made the watcher wait to something revolutionary happen and waiting the wedding to be held what happened shortly not until the very end of the 2 hours lasted movie. Emily Blunts role as a bride was adorable and memorable.

There is included also many real life problems that come up in the relationships nowadays with some comedy added in it, it makes the movie interesting and enjoyable.

In some points of the movie the actors performances got too out of line. The jokes and some scenes were not funny anymore. The story was serious so some of the scenes could have been more serious as well. The music was well selected in the movie and made the right feeling in the scenes.
