REPEAT is marred by some crude jokes and lots of gratuitous foul language.

More Detail:

LOVE. WEDDING. REPEAT is a British romantic comedy that has some very funny moments, but it’s marred by crude jokes, lots of foul language, some plot holes, and a lack of jeopardy at the end.

The movie opens with Jack spending time with Dina, his sister’s friend, while on vacation in Rome. When he has the opportunity to take a leap of faith and kiss Dina, circumstances get in the way.

Three years later, Jack is at his sister, Haley’s, wedding, and he sees Dina. Instantly they have a connection, but Haley has a problem. A man named Marc has come to the wedding to win Haley back, so Haley asks for Jack’s help to stop Marc. They decide to put some sleeping medicine in Marc’s cup, so he will fall asleep. However, the cups get switched around, and Haley’s maid of honor accidently drinks the sleeping medicine and falls asleep. Will they still be able to stop Marc from destroying the wedding? Will Jack be able to talk to Dina and win her love?

Streaming on Netflix, LOVE. WEDDING. REPEAT has a light moral worldview about family staying by each other’s side and loving people despite their flaws. The movie also says people should do the right thing, even if it’s not what they want. In spite of all this, the movie has an excessive amount of strong foul language and some crude jokes.

Some of the comedy in LOVE. WEDDING. REPEAT is extremely funny, but some of it is over the top and thus unbelievable. Also, there are some plot holes, and the drama about the uninvited guest doesn’t make sense because, in reality, such a person would have been kicked out of the wedding. Finally, an hour into the movie all the jeopardy suddenly ends, and the movie takes the last 30 minutes to wrap up while delivering a sentimental ending with little conflict and comedy. In spite of this, the movie contains some very funny British humor that some viewers may appreciate.
