Movie Info

DESTINATION WEDDING reunites two of Hollywood's most adored stars, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, as the socially awkward Frank and Lindsay. When they meet on their way to a destination wedding, they soon discover they have a lot in common: they both hate the bride, the groom, the wedding, themselves, and most especially each other. As the weekend's events continually force them together -- and their cheerlessness immediately isolates them from the other guests -- Frank and Lindsay find that if you verbally spar with someone long enough, anything can happen. When debate gives way to desire they must decide which is stronger: their hearts or their common sense.

  • This is, hands down, the most ridiculously overwritten film in the history of romcoms, possibly even of all movies.

  • A couple of scenes in Destination Wedding fall so calamitously flat I had the disconcerting sensation I was watching the film dubbed in a foreign language or for a spoofed internet meme.

  • Given that Winona and Keanu are old pals, they have an easy chemistry together, even playing such utterly repugnant characters.

  • The Reeves-Ryder double act deserves nimbler, sparklier, less overwritten material. But in its absence, this passes the time amusingly enough.

  • As the duo progress from allergic dislike towards odd coupling, the film's sheer cheapness is as distracting as spinach between the teeth.

  • It's basically the Phil and Rita dynamic from 'Groundhog Day', only with two Phils and a fifth of the jokes.

Audience Reviews for Destination Wedding

  • Nov 24, 2019
    Refreshing to find a chatty film, that plays out like Woody Allen's better works. Destination Wedding rests on the shoulders of the stars and filmmakers. Keanu Reeves has a knack for comedy and it's a shame he didn't attempt more of it in the early part of his career. Wiona Ryder is genuinely the best part of her films and once again doesn't disappoint. The core problems with the film are more story beat driven as it falls in the cliché model too often. When a film is secretly filmed and released without too much expectation, I tend to expect some twists on the narrative. This is a good film, but could've been a great film. The stars are the key here and if you don't care too much for their work, maybe find yourself another film. Solid indie film and one that deserves to be found. 24/11/2019

    Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves star in the satiric romantic comedy Destination Wedding. The film follows two misanthropes who are paired together at a destination wedding as they critique each other, the wedding activities, life, and love. Both Ryder and Reeves give strong performance, and prove able to carry the film; which is entirely focused on their two characters. And, the witty banter is incredibly clever and has a nice rhythm and style to it. Still, it can get a little raunchy and nihilistic – which kills the romance vibe. It's a bit of a gimmick film and is kind of limited by the two character format, but Destination Wedding is entertaining and delivers some laughs.

    A wonderfully constructed (and acted) exercise in egotism.
