| Another Altman slice of life
This movie does not differ from many Robert Altman's of the 1970's and 1980's. A large cast is given a situation and it plays out. In this case its the wedding of two kids but its more about several other things at the same time. Neither of the family members are very comfortable and the day is a disaster. No one shows up for the reception. It gets worse than that too.

A movie like this is as memorable as the actors and they are all very good, particularly Vittorio Gassman, Dina Merrill, Viveca Lindfors, Peggy Ann Garner and John Considine.

Stand-out scene for me was between "MOB" ("Mother of the Bride", in Geraldine Chaplin's caterers' shorthand) Nina Van Pallandt and her creepy & lecherous doctor Howard Duff. Let's just say The Beatles song "Mother's Little Helper" comes to mind right away.
