"Perverse Romantic Comedy?"
What You Need To Know:
Not only is the entire storyline of KISS THE BRIDE offensive, there are also multiple negative elements. No surprise, there is much male nudity with many scenes of the two main characters embracing and kissing. There are also depicted scenes of homosexual sex. There’s much foul language and constant dialogue about sex and body parts. During the bachelorette party, there is a male stripper. Alex, the bride-to-be, suggests that on the night before the wedding, the two men should spend the night together to see if her fiancée still has feelings for Matt. It’s a twisted storyline where black is white and white is black. Naturally, viewers with biblical faith and values will avoid this movie.
(PaPaPa, H, HoHoHo, PCPCPC, LLL, SSS, NN, AAA, DD, M) Very strong pagan worldview with light humanist elements and very strong, pervasive homosexual content that’s politically correct; 29 obscenities and 16 profanities; multiple scenes of depicted homosexual immorality, males stripping and much discussion of homosexual sex; upper male nudity front and back, lower male nudity back; much alcohol use and drunkenness; smoking and marijuana use; and, moral relativism, negative role models of marriage that’s ultimately anti-marriage, lying.
KISS THE BRIDE is the story of Matt (played by Philipp Karner), who goes to a friend’s wedding to see if the groom, Ryan (played by James O’Shea), still has homosexual feelings for him, as he had in the past. The movie is basically a homosexual version of MY BEST FRIEND’S WEDDING. Unsuspecting bride Alex (played by Tori Spelling) befriends old friend Matt and ultimately Ryan has to decide who he wants to be with, his female fiancée or his previous homosexual lover.
Ignoring the perverse storyline, the movie is technically well made and well written. The two guys give great performances, though Tori Spelling’s performance leaves much to be desired. The pacing is tight; all production elements are top notch. In fact, it’s the high quality of this movie that gives the potential that there may be a wider appeal beyond the homosexual art house world.
The movie obviously comes from a homosexual worldview with extreme moral depravity depicted. The homosexual relationship is presented in terms of being romantic and typical. There is a not-so-subtle message that marriage is irrelevant; it’s the commitment that matters. This is a political end-run since there is a backlash to homosexual marriage and this attempts to re-define what marriage is. In the movie, two heterosexual marriages are both painted as being filled with adultery, boredom or both. The pontification about commitment versus marriage is supposed to help an older married couple find love again in their marriage. However, it’s just plot manipulation to make a point.
Not only is the entire storyline of KISS THE BRIDE offensive, there are multiple negative elements. Characters drink excessively to the point of drunkenness multiple times and characters smoke marijuana. No surprise, there is much male nudity (though no frontal) with many scenes of the two main characters embracing and kissing. There are depicted scenes of homosexual sex. The language is no better. There’s much foul language and constant dialogue about genitalia and sex. During the bachelorette party, there is a phallic symbol and a male stripper. Alex, the bride-to-be, suggests that on the night before the wedding, the two men should spend the night together sexually to see if her fiancée still has feelings for Matt. It’s a twisted storyline where black is white and white is black. The fact that the movie is made by talented people means that the homosexual message will be attractively packaged to undiscerning viewers.
