“Destination Wedding” Movie Review
Frank (Keanu Reeves) is a miserable curmudgeon of a man. And he is happy to stay that way. He hates his brother (Keith) and mother (and just about everyone alive) and would much rather not be boarding a plane to San Luis Obispo to attend his brother’s “destination wedding”.
Lindsay (Winona Ryder) is a miserable curmudgeon of a woman. And she is happy to stay that way. She hates her ex-fiance (Keith) and (just about everyone alive) and would much rather not be boarding a plane to San Luis Obispo to attend her ex’s “destination wedding”.
Frank and Lindsay are loners in life, and at the wedding, where they stick close to one another…..bitching and moaning the whole time.
Then they find out that they actually like each other……
“Destination Wedding” is a fun movie completely devoid of action (unless you consider sex in the mountains with a cougar / mountain lion / lynx / panther / cheetah in attendance, action). Reeves and Ryder are perfect together delivering droll, but extremely witty, dialogue that proves their acceptance of the miserable lives they both lead…..and are happy to continue leading. Not for kids and not for many adults (Lori did not like it as much as I did), but, damn it is funny. You need to pay attention to every line. 🙂
“Lindsay: Do you wanna have children? Frank: I’d rather be dead in a ditch.”
“Lindsay: Why didn’t we meet seven years ago? Frank: Just lucky I guess.”
“Frank: Why would anyone have my mother as their maid of honor? Lindsay: I know, it’s like having the Grim Reaper at your CAT scan.”
