QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: A group of strangers end up seated together at a wedding and must contend with their various issues.
PLOT:
Eloise McGarry (ANNA KENDRICK) is a young woman whose boyfriend of two years, Teddy (WYATT RUSSELL), has recently broken up with her. The fact that he's the brother to Eloise's friend and will be the best man in that woman's wedding has forced Eloise to drop out of serving as the maid of honor, a role that's now gone to Teddy's girlfriend, Nikki (AMANDA CREW), who he dated before Eloise.

Regardless of that development, Eloise has decided to attend the wedding, but having been the person who arranged the seating chart for the reception, she's put herself in the back corner at table 19. Joining her are Bina (LISA KUDROW) and Jerry Kepp (CRAIG ROBINSON) who run a diner in another state but are suffering from marital discord; ex-con Walter Thimble (STEPHEN MERCHANT) who once stole $125,000 from the bride's father; Jo Flanagan (JUNE SQUIBB) who was the bride's nanny decades ago; and Renzo Eckberg (TONY REVOLORI), a high school student who's been encouraged by his mom to attend the wedding rather than his junior prom since it means he'll likely have a better chance of getting lucky there.

As the reception draws on, those at the table get to know each other as each goes through the various issues they're facing.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're fans of anyone in the cast. Otherwise, it doesn't seem too likely this film is on most kids' radar screens.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
