After only 6 months of dating, Stephanie and Ben get engaged and are delighted to share the news. However, they hit a road bump when Stephanie’s parents show concern that the couple has moved too fast.
Ok…So there are a couple of ways of looking at this film.
It’s a Hallmark movie, you know what you are going to get. Low budgets, simple stories, competent actors, textbook conflict, and resolution. We know the formula to a tee.
Maybe it’s the fact that watching Hollywood films these days have become a chore that this film feels refreshing by comparison. I mean after being hammered in the skulls nonstop with stories about how racist and sexist the world is and how the world is going to eat because we smoke too many meats, or the screenwriter simply using the film as an intersectional feminist college lecture…A film about a couple trying to organize their sister’s wedding is like having an hour lunch.
With that said, the film is pretty short but not well structured as it does begin to drag on in the 2nd film. However, once the film settles out and its central point becomes clear, Sister of the Bride becomes a solid family film.
