Table 19

TABLE 19

Review: Ex-maid of honour Eloise gets dumped by the best man. She decides to attend the wedding and not hide away from everything. She finds herself seated at a table with a desperate group of guests, on table 19 which is at the back of the ballroom.
Director: Jeffrey Blitz
Actors: Anna Kendrick, Lisa Kudrow, Craig Robinson, Rya Meyers, Charles Green, Tony Revolori, Margo Martindale, Stephen Merchant, Carlos Aviles, June Squibb, Brad Oberhofer, Megan Lawless, Amanda Crew, Jay Klaitz and Wyatt Russell
Year: 2017
Genre: Comedy, Drama and Romance
Conclusion: 1/5
I am puzzled that good actors such as Anna Kendrick and Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel, 2014) are starring in such dreadful turgid films such as this. They are all fantastic actors but completely wasted. It just makes you realise how good something like Four Weddings and a Funeral, (1994) is. It is like no one knows how to make good comedies anymore that are actually funny. If anything this would have worked better as a forgettable mini t.v. series. I felt like one of the characters sitting on table 19! I was just waiting for this film to finish.
