I got a bit nostalgic watching The Wedding Party. It took me back to movies like Don's Party the possess a uniquely Aussie sense of humour and celebrates the larrikin personality. There's nothing overtly special about the movie but it does work nicely. Josh Lawson plays a guy in financial trouble who agrees to marry a citizenship-seeking Russian woman for $25K. A family friend overhears their plans to marry and soon the entire family have planned an elaborate wedding. The film is nicely balanced with a moderate amount of drama and focuses on various other relationship dynamics amongst the family. Steve Bisley is fantastic as the over zealous father and other players like Adam Zwan, Nadine Gardner and Geoff Paine deliver great performances. There's nothing new here and it's basic formula but it's handled well and delivered sincerely. Its great to see Josh Lawson landing some decent lead roles too. He's really taking off and has been scoring several Hollywood roles (2 leads I believe). he's got the talent and he's likeable. The Wedding Party will give you a few LOLs and it offers one of the funniest moments I've seen in cinema in a very long time. Extra cred for that!
