‘BEVERLY HILLS WEDDING’: A COMEDY OF TOO MUCH WEDDING!

February 18, 2021 1 Comment

To start their ‘Love Ever After’ campaign, Hallmark casts two familiar faces, Brooke D’Orsay and Branden Penny, in this silly shenanigans of a rom com! D’Orsay plays Molly, a talented photographer who isn’t living out her life’s dream because of various setbacks. But none of that matters today because her baby sister is about to become engaged to her childhood sweetheart and Molly is there to capture every sweet moment on film. The day ends with the newly engaged couple surrounded by family including Cory (Penny), the one person Molly didn’t expect to see.

High school sweethearts, Molly did something wrong, or so she assumes, because Cory left her to pursue other things. Seeing him again is less than ideal (and certainly not in Molly’s best laid plans!), but working to ensure her sister has the perfect wedding is. And so Molly determines to do everything possible to make it so.

Of the movies coming in the 2021 ‘Love Ever After’ line up, Beverly Hills Wedding isn’t one I was most excited for. Odd since I do like Brooke D’Orsay (and have since Royal Pains), but still, there it is. Nonetheless, like anything, it’s a cute title. Brooke plays the usual take-charge, organized character (pretty sure everything I’ve seen her in, she plays a variation of this), and she does it well. What I actually don’t love is the sister and fiancé’s relationship. Don’t mistake me, I root for them, I just don’t like that the fiancé never seems to be taken seriously.

There are plenty of fun moments and despite Molly’s big personality, the quiet moments between the sisters (near the end) are actually really quite sweet and touching. (This one even has a bit of of an Austen Emma vibe going for it.) Even with this, there is a missing link in the family relationships this go round. But I do like the approach the romance takes. It’s based more on friendship and their past, even though it’s got something there; plus, the end is sweet.

Though this seems more like a story suited for ‘June Weddings,’ it’s still fun and I love that we are treated to a beach setting instead of a small town vibe. It’s something that adds a solid energy and helps make this one stand out.

Content: there is a homosexual character in this title. It’s minor but does, about 60 minutes in, introduce us to their spouse. We also see this character (possibly) make a minor suggestive remark towards two other characters. Beverly Hills Wedding is TV-G.
