Don’t Fit In? Take A Number.
Anna Kendrick’s wound-up wedding guest Eloise was supposed to be the maid of honour at her oldest friend’s nuptials. Instead, having just been dumped by the bride’s brother, she’s been consigned to an out-of-the-way table with a random bunch of misfits – a bickering married couple (Lisa Kudrow, Craig Robinson); an on-the-spectrum cousin (Stephen Merchant); a socially awkward teenager (The Grand Budapest Hotel’s Tony Revolori); and the bride’s elderly former nanny (June Squibb). Swinging between cringe and schmaltz, this bittersweet wedding dramedy is as uneven as the table placement. The cast have their moments, but most of the gags fall flat.
