      Deborah Ross The Spectator OK, this all sounds a bit tiresome and shop-worn... But, as well as being savage, it is also savagely droll, with several truly laugh-out-loud moments, and the performances are stunning. Aug 23, 2018 Full Review David Fear Time Out Rated: 5/5 Nov 16, 2011 Full Review Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard Doesn't quite measure up to its predecessor but it is still an often painfully accurate study of fractured family relationships. Rated: 3/5 Feb 29, 2008 Full Review Mattie Lucas From the Front Row Baumbach's flair for dialogue and keen observation are still in top shape. Rated: 3.5/4 Jul 6, 2019 Full Review Kaleem Aftab The List The movie just isn't funny, nor is Baumbach's decision to leave the boom in shot in any way avant-garde. Rated: 2/5 Nov 4, 2018 Full Review PJ Nabarro Patrick Nabarro Margot at the Wedding is a little too literary and its overall air of wry cartoonish dysfunctionality becomes wearing and is conceitedly telegraphed.

      KB B This movie was hard to watch with many of the characters constantly at each other's throats. I'd never want to watch it again. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/26/24 Full Review Tara D A slice-of-life family drama that seems better suited for the stage than cinema. Every performance is spectacular which each actor delivering a complete living, breathing human being that feels like someone you know (even if you've never had the misfortune of crossing paths with someone exactly like them). As is the case with much of Baumback's work, it seems the suffering of the characters-and ours vicariously as we watch them stumble tactlessly thru micromoments of their experience-is in vain without the redemption of growth or the catharsis of major disaster. Baumback's direction offers so much compassion for these imperfect people and missteps they choose that a loyal viewer might almost feel lost in a morally relativistic quagmire with them. It is clear that many of these humans just outright suck but we don't get much opportunity to hate them before getting consumed back up into their perspective. Although belabored humor infuses several moments of the film nothing actually feels too funny as the overall unease of the circumstances and the young folks involved in this nightmare seem more and more at risk. My high rating reflects the accuracy with which Margot's arrival at the wedding pinpoints the distress of being stuck in a tortured family. But my disinterest in engaging meaningfully in the unsatisfactory emotional life it represents keeps it from being a truly resonant, rewatchable picture. It's not a bad movie but don't be so sure you'll want to be around it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/12/24 Full Review Richard M This movie was bad on so many levels from audio mixing so you could barely hear the dialogue to jump cuts that totally confused you about how or why the (or where!) the characters were. Just awful. Felt like a student film haphazardly put together in the editing room because they didn't get all the scenes shot. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/11/23 Full Review Steve D Despite some great work by the two women the film is just too gross and outputting to work. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/06/23 Full Review Vander A Where to begin.......what a total mess of a movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/05/23 Full Review Maria It could have been an interesting look at bad, manipulative, distinctive mothers, as Kidman's character is. But the film does not follow through to the end. Scattered ideas, no message. Leaves too much to the audience. But it could have been good Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
