Reviews of Movies about Parties and Occasions

Wedding Movies

The Party Planning niche on Squidoo has had a very busy couple of weeks. I published my newest curation list filled with party movies and have had people write some terrific reviews.

The movie list has a little bit of something for everyone including all sorts of parties and occasions like:

  • Weddings
  • Graduations
  • Anniversaries
  • Baby Showers
  • Bachelor Parties
  • Beach Parties
  • and even children's parties
With such wonderful participation, I wanted to make sure I highlighted some of the reviews this week. I will include the remainder in next weeks post. I don't want to leave anyone out!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

my big fat greek wedding dvd boxI love this movie and so does Lensmaster wir55. She wrote an awesome review of the quirky, romantic comedy.

I agree with her (and the story line) that families are so very loving but can be overwhelming all at the same time. Sorting through the emotions can lead to some humorous incidents in our lives.

I think this film brings home the fact that you marry the whole family when you marry your spouse!

I think one of my favorite parts of the film is watching Toula grow and change into the self-confident person her mother always knew she was. Yes, mothers know more than any of us give them credit for, more often than not.

Like the movie, this review is definitely worth reading. Thanks wir55!

Runaway Bride

This review was by our very own BuckHawk -- aka Susan. I love Julia Roberts and have seen every single film she has made. There is just something about her that comes across the screen as genuine.

As Susan said in her review of the movie, it's a film you can watch over and over. I still laugh at all the same parts but usually find a new bit of humor each time I watch.

The pairing of Julia and Richard is classic. Their chemistry and penchant for straight-faced humor is unmatched. It's definitely one of my all time favorite romantic comedies.

Thanks for the review, Susan. I really enjoyed it.


monster in law dvd boxThis movie about an interfering mother-in-law was reviewed by VeganEater. Again, a cute movie with a wedding and romance as a central theme. This time, it also involves a mom professing to be protecting her son from his future wife.

VeganEater shares her impressions of all the characters as well as which are her favorite. Surprisingly, it's not any of the leads. You'll have to read her review to find out!

This movie stars Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda. They are perfect and play very well off each other. It's funny how the son/fiance is oblivious to what is actually going on. (I think I know a few men that fit that can have the same problem at times...)

  1. It's great to see our Party Planner drawing in the party animals with rave reviews of movies. I've not seen ny of these films so I'm headed to read the reviews.

    1. LOL -- yes party animals! These are three really fun movies. Hope you get to see them (or at least one!)

  2. Always appreciate reviews of movies from a viewers' point-of-view as a 'fan' of the movie, as it's always more honest than what a movie 'critic' might say. A fun selection of movie reviews here. I look forward to more as I read the current reviews. :)

    1. I rarely agree with critics and sometimes wonder where they are coming from. Movies are entertainment. I'll take a regular viewers' point of view any day!

  3. I'm always looking for a good movie to rent. Thanks for bringing us these fun reviews.

    1. You're welcome! Hope you get time to visit them. They are all fun to watch.

  4. I knew you would have a good run with your party movie curation list. I've only seen one of the three spotlighted movies. I'm headed over to cruise these reviews. Very happy to see your successes. Party hardy!

  5. Thank Diana! Yes, movies do seem to be a door opener. Thanks for checking out the reviews!

  6. Ah, first, thanks for featuring my review of Runaway Bride! How nice of you. I have not seen Monster in Law so that's a review I definitely want to find out about. Great fun with all these wedding movies!

    1. You said it! Seems comedy and weddings are a good mix! You very welcome, too!

  7. Oh, I love all of these movies and I am so glad you shared their reviews here. Of course, something else that appeals to is that they are all romance movies. I do love romance!
