Love, Weddings & Other Disasters is a feel good film that is appreciated this holiday season.
Maggie Grace (Taken) and Oscar® winners Diane Keaton and Jeremy Irons lead this warmhearted romantic comedy. With a couple’s impending wedding as the backdrop, Love, Weddings & Other Disasters weaves multiple storylines as it follows the search for love by a colorful group of characters including: an inexperienced wedding planner (Grace) nicknamed “The Wedding Trasher”; a fussy celebrity caterer (Irons); his blind date (Keaton); and a tour-bus guide (Andrew Bachelor) looking for his Cinderella. How their lives and loves intersect is half the fun in this film that proves romance is alive and well… and as crazy as ever!
This is a film by Dennis Dugan. He is an actor, writer, director and producer. He was known as a popular comedian, actor between the 70s-80s and was seen in Unidentified Flying Oddball, Can’t Buy Me Love and Parenthood.
