In the Israeli film “Fill the Void,” out Friday, an Orthodox Jewish girl is pressured to marry her sister’s widower. That’s a little odd, but moviegoers have attended many strange weddings.
“The Philadelphia Story”
In this 1940 classic, Katharine Hepburn plays a woman who’s all set to be remarried — until her ex (Cary Grant) and a photographer (Jimmy Stewart) show up and ruin everything. By which we mean “be adorable.”
“Prelude to a Kiss”
Something goes wrong at every wedding; in this 1992 film the bride switches souls with an old man after a quick kiss. At least that makes centerpiece concerns a bit irrelevant.
“Kill Bill Vol. 1”
It’s not considered ideal for a bride to be pregnant at the altar. It’s also not great to have Tarantino direct a movie with a wedding in it, since pretty much everyone will end up dead, as they did in this 2003 kung-fu flick.
This 2009 “comedy” proves that one Oscar winner (Anne Hathaway) and one nominee (Kate Hudson) do not a good movie make. Two best friends turn into enemies because weddings make girls crazy! Am I right?
“Four Weddings and a Funeral”
This 1994 romcom brought Hugh Grant to a grateful nation, and most of the weddings are lovely. Except for the one where a beloved character dies. Silver lining? One less thank-you note to write.
