I couldn't get behind any of this. Nothing seemed the least bit realistic. It seemed like five-year-olds running around in adult bodies. The music throughout this celebration was annoying. The dishwasher scene plumbed the depths of dumb, and the following scene in the salon was so ugly and impossible to believe it made me want to vomit. I never recovered after that disgustingly written and acted scene.
"Rachel Getting Married" is a contemporary "drama with an aggressive sense of humor" about the return of an estranged daughter to the family home for her sister's wedding. Kym's (Hathaway) reemergence throws a wrench into the family dynamics, forcing long-simmering tensions to surface in ways both hilarious and heartbreaking. "Rachel Getting Married" paints a colorful, nuanced family portrait and is filled with the rich characters that have always been a hallmark of Jonathan Demme's films.
