Rachel Getting Married – Elope, PLEASE!

Anne Hathaway as Kym, a drug addict just out of rehab, is getting much deserved acclaim for her performance. Okay – I get it. She’s a mess, but the WHOLE movie is a mess otherwise.

Jonathan Demme offers up a jumbled up, overly long, poorly edited, poorly filmed, poorly directed effort. The had held shooting is supposed to create a sense of tension. It just made me nauseous. 

Save yourself $20, and skip this movie. Wait for the DVD release, rent if you think you can stand it, but be warned. The rehearsal dinner and wedding scenes drag on, and on, and on, and . . . well, you get the drift. In fact, the whole movie should have lasted about 20 seconds., and it came during Kym (Hathaway’s toast) at the rehearsal dinner. She said something to the effect of, “I’m a mess, and you’re an angel” (to Rachel, Kym’s sister). Yep – that’s about it.
