Heartstring-tugging if a bit humorless.
The Hollywood Reporter
There’s a fine, fierce film somewhere in Jenny’s Wedding, trying to claw its way out from under all the clichés, speechifying and sappy pop music.
While the fine cast teases out glimmers of nuance here and there, Mary Agnes Donoghue’s film plays like a series of hand-holding growth exercises for closed-minded conservatives, and relies too heavily on its tying-the-knot finale for both dramatic momentum and emotional closure.
The A.V. Club
This is a movie displaced in time. And it’s barely a movie. It’s more like a dusty, faded old pamphlet: “So your daughter’s decided to get gay-married…”
Jenny’s Wedding isn’t ill-intentioned or actively bad; it’s just a little too familiar, a little too safe and a little too satisfied with itself.
Tolerance in the film doesn't so much suggest a recognizably real epiphany as it does a moving Hallmark card.
The New York Times
A movie so hopelessly late to the coming-out party that you want to haul everyone connected with it into the 21st century.
This clunky dud about a same-sex union would have come across as trite and behind-the-times 20 years ago, let alone in 2015.
Lazy, schmaltzy, and on-the-nose from its Hallmark-friendly production design to its rancid pop-music cues and naive dialogue.
New York Daily News
Any humor, though, is buried deep in bad writing. So the joke’s on us. Writer-director Mary Agnes Donoghue is surely well-intentioned, but her tin ear and very-special-episode worldview miss the mark.
