Robert De Niro is punching us in the face again in these new images and trailer for THE BIG WEDDING

Is it just me, or does Robert De Niro’s acting career resemble the life of a human being? He started off all strong and full of vigour, challenging the world with every action and word. Now, decades later, he needs to wear adult diapers because of all the poop he finds himself in. Now I’m not saying that his latest effort, The Big Wedding, is definitely going to be bad, but it is a Rom-Com with Katherine Heigl in it, which is the cinematic equivalent of drinking drain cleaner.

Let’s hope that a crazy talented cast of older folks in the form of Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton and Robin Williams can still pump this movie’s stomach.

With an all-star cast led by Robert DeNiro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, with Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams, THE BIG WEDDING is an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco. To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son’s wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly halfway across the world to attend. With all of the wedding guests looking on, the Griffins are hilariously forced to confront their past, present and future – and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process.

Yeah, that’s probably not going to be very good. It’s not that it looks horribly offensive or anything, it just looks to be so middle of the  road, so been there done that, which is a little surprising seeing as it’s written and directed by Justin Zackman, the same guy who wrote the amazingly charming and touching The Bucket List. Then again, he also wrote and directed Going Greek.

Yeah, I suspect this one will be making as big a splash as an underwater baby fart.

Hello ladies. Look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped watching horrible Michael Bay movies, he could be as much of a hardcore film geek as me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a South African movie blog with the man your man could be as big a film geek as. What’s in your hand? Back at me. I have it. It’s a warm box of freshly popped popcorn, butter melted awesomeness wafting in your face just like you like. Look again, the popcorn is now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man stops watching Michael Bay movies. I’m on a horse.
