DESTINATION WEDDING (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì 

Destination Wedding—without the prolonged sex scene mid-show—can easily place for a movie of the year award. The film relies on a movie-making technique rarely used, consistent running dialogue, from its beginning to its end without the usual ‘fluff and stuff’ to increase entertainment value. ‘Fluff and stuff’ is not needed here as the dialogue stands quite well on its own. The movie completely involves the intellect. The writing, extremely sophisticated, examines the human condition of psychologically dissecting why we involve ourselves, as a species, in the ritual of mating, committing, and staying with lifelong partners…the process of falling in love comes under rigid, rigorous scrutiny and satisfactorily delivers its wonderful conclusion with a quite unique bouquet of roses. Incredible and satisfactory entertainment for a sophisticated, adult audience.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. A well-written, witty film, “O’ Brother Where Art Thou?” has suggestive scenes, but becomes an outstanding watch due to its sophisticated dialogue. Take out the graphic scene in the movie, Destination Wedding, and the movie becomes a 100 percent watch recommendation...a complete 'Yes' recommendation.
