People We Hate at the Wedding Movie Review: Watching some family movies is like eating Maggi. You know nothing great can come of it and yet you go through it for the feel-good factor in the end. people we hate in marriage falls in the same category. The takeaway here is that everything turns out for the better in the end if we try and that’s a sentiment we can all get behind.

What I’m missing here is the lack of humor. It very easily could have been a family comedy but it was not. These movies deserve some sense of humor to get you more invested in the predictable narrative.

Also, I think the story doesn’t do justice to the title people we hate in marriage, It looks like it will address all the craziness we see at weddings but it just focuses on the mother and her three kids. Insta Reels by influencers on the same topic are far more interesting and above all, funnier! This is why Kristen Bell breastfed her husband Dax Shepard,

Performance is clearly the key with everyone doing their part perfectly. Bell is quite likeable here despite her characters’ obvious flaws, the silliness of the plot is on point while Allison Janney is loveable. The rest make this film worth watching once.
