We all love, and weddings and love to take a walk down the aisle. Once you take care of all the planning part of the wedding, it’s just two people saying that they’ll love each other forever in presence of lots of people they love and care about—it’s sufficient to bring tears to most people. That’s seemingly why tales about people getting married have literally been celebrated since the days of Shakespeare. Like all the real weddings in the real world, films about marriages can make you laugh and cry and sometimes at the same time.

Most of the movies are about the universal idea of weddings or characters who happen to work in the wedding business, and other films are about the whole process of preparing and performing a wedding. My Big Fat Greek Wedding throws in some funny and witty cultural commentary and it is quite a fun watch when you are down.
I’m not quite sure what is more magical about the movie: Eternal love or the music of ABBA. With Mamma Mia!, you don’t have to pick. The excessive big-screen adaptation of the Broadway hit features Meryl Streep as a mother of the bride to be who discovers herself suddenly confronted by the three men who could be the father of her daughter’s dad. This is one fun movie to watch on a weekend if you haven’t watched it still.
