Frank and Lindsay meet on the way to a romantic vineyard wedding and instantly dislike one another. Forced to tolerate each other for three days they discover that in addition to their need to always get in the last word, they share the same cynical sense of humor, and their constant squabbling evolves into an unexpected alliance.

Romcom for nihilists
Verified purchase
If like me you bought the German DVD, note there are some title cards in the movie in German but they're not that important (I google translated them), but otherwise no problems with the disc. Hopefully it'll get a UK release soon.

As for the film, I absolutely loved it. It's basically two people complaining to and about each other for 80 minutes so if you prefer your romcoms starring Kate Hudson and a smiley pop soundtrack, you'll absolutely hate this. It's the antidote to the usual Hollywood guff and while in some ways it does follow a formula (two people hate each other at first but realise they have a lot in common) it earns its pathos. Keanu can do deadpan comedy like the best of them and Winona Ryder's eyerolling reactions make for a perfect double act.

I literally laughed until tears were streaming down my face at several points, ie. the mountain lion sequence. Anyone who's been in a relationship will get a kick out of the little details as Keanu and Winona slowly bond, like how they simultaneously argue and arrange a blanket to cover both their legs whilst watching TV. It's a little gem of a movie that didn't really get a wide release anywhere so I recommend you get hold of a copy.

I will never be turned on again

I’m writing this review while watching the movie. That’s how bored I am. I’ve loved Keanu Reeves for a long time, but I think I’ve never found him unsexy as I do during this.

The film is just Keanu and Winona talking. Talking at each other. Talking over each other. Endlessly talking. Keanu must have got the script and wondered how he was supposed to memorise all these incomprehensible lines. There’s no other interaction with any other characters. Just the two of them. Talking. You’ve got a huge (!) segment talking about Frank’s (Keanu) penis, which is baletically formed. I kid you not:

Lindsay: Would you like to know about you?
Frank: No.
Lindsay: Yes you would. You're very handsome... And you have a beautiful penis.
Frank: I do?
Lindsay: Oh come on Frank. Surely people have told you that your entire life.
Frank: No.
Lindsay: Well it's very nice. It's straight, and you would not believe how epidemic a problem that is. Also it's baletically formed. It's not so big as to ever be a concern, but it's big enough never to be the object of ridicule or scorn. You're in a very sweet spot there.
Frank: Are you saying that Keith's penis is not straight?
Lindsay: Can you imagine that we would have gone this entire weekend without saying these things to each other?
Frank: Balletically formed?
Lindsay: That's right

There’s one of the most unsexy love scenes that I’ve ever seen. They talk constantly during this act of love making, which seems shoehorned into the storyline as there’s no chemistry during Winona and Keanu. And that tie - take it off. If I was to subject a boyfriend to watching this, I feel we would be both so turned off after watching this scene that we would never touch each other again. I was dry afterwards. I feel I will never feel turned on again.

What was with the constant unable-ness to open anything? There’s a consistent struggle to open packets of peanuts, chocolate, bottles of wine, car doors and an ongoing discussion about whether an animal they stumbled upon was a mountain lion/puma/raccoon (I joke.)

I’m glad I only paid £3 for this dvd, as I would have resented paying anything more than that. It didn’t hold my attention and I would not recommend it. I don’t even thinking drinking alcohol would help make this film more enjoyable.

Your life is worth more than wasting it watching this
Verified purchase
Well if you think you've seen the worst movie of your life think again. Until you've seen this nothing else can be evaluated. Victor Levin both wrote and directed this and hopefully, this ends his desire to work in the area of entertainment. It is much more like a play and I can imagine the two-hander might prove useful in amateur drama groups. I'm trying to give meaning to this complete embarrassment to the entertainment industry. Clearly it must appeal to a specific personality type. Personally I never laughed or smiled once. So somewhere there are people who left reviews who nearly cracked a rib laughing but not me.
The storyline is ridiculous of an ex-fiance (Ryder) from six years ago being asked to her ex's wedding. Reeves and Ryder work hard to make the movie work, but they are unlikeable characters with deep personality issues. And the teenage drama student clunky script make it impossible to engage with them. And so this hideous behemoth lumbers along.....

Non-stop acerbic wit – absolutely brilliant!
Verified purchase
Destination Wedding is an excellent piece of cinema reminiscent of Woody Allen or Larry David at their best. Basic plot revolves around two 50-something, exceedingly cynical people thrown together at the off-site wedding of someone they both hate. The story-telling device is one of non-stop vitriolic fast-talk between the two of them and everything else happens in the background. I found it hilarious and some of the amusing moments were side-splittingly funny. If you don’t like dialogue-heavy movies then forget it; this one in unrelenting. I do like fast-talking dialogue and plenty of it, e.g. Big Lebowski or earlier/mid Woody Allen films, and so I loved this movie. I can see why it gets mixed reviews as it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and you need your brain to be fully switched on to follow the fast-paced acerbic wit for an hour and a half. I will be watching it again for sure, which is my strongest recommendation. Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves are perfectly cast and give perfect performances. How they memorised the very long passages is beyond impressive. Top marks – watch it.

A pleasant way to spend 86 minutes of my life.

As Frank says in the movie: "I'll be dead for a very long time". But I'm content to have spent a small portion of my finite life watching this movie. In fact, should probably double that as I'll have to watch it a second time to catch all the jokes. They're so fast I could barely keep up.

This is a really good film with two gorgeous and entertaining actors. I know nothing about their lives in real life but if Keanu and Wynona aren't married they should get together because I refuse to believe that the chemistry in this film was just acting.

I wanted to like it!!
Verified purchase
**SPOILERS** Wow, this is one wordy film. Not sure whoever wrote, directed and produced this realised that movies are a visual medium and don't need someone speaking all the time. Rather than contain much action the film appears to be a timeline of scenes where the two main characters argue/show how incompatible they are, only for them to (what, no really!!!) end up in bed. There are a few witty retorts and one liners in an otherwise disappointing film. Disappointing because it has an interesting premise and some very good actors at it's core. Not even worth watching if it were free!

The anti-romcom
Verified purchase
I wasn't sure about buying a Romcom, but I suspected with Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves starring, it would be a bit different to the fluff out there. Thankfully, I was right! It's a very amusing look at two awkward people, who awkwardly get to together at a wedding in a posh (and unpractical) location. It was a breath of fresh air and at times, I was belly laughing at their dysfunctional moments. Loved both actors' performances depicting the 'non-flirt' so well.

Bit Arty - But Nontheless Generally Good
Verified purchase
I'm a simple kind of bloke. I like cars, big explosions, robots and mindless movies by and large. However, I do appreciate that my wife is not a troglodyte like me and now and again I have to grit my teeth and pick something less explosive. Thus I reach out to my softer side and watch a rom-com and smile nicely throughout.

And of course I figured that this would be the same. A typical rom-com but perhaps a tad more acerbic than some given the reviews.

Nope. To any of it.

It's not a rom-com nor is it a comedy as such - although it is genuinely funny in places. It's also not nasty or snarky either - although once again the repartee is edgy in places.

What this is - and would normally have me running a mile - is more of an 'art film.' It is a vehicle for Keanu Reeves and a Winona Ryder vehicle for shape dialogue - mostly. It does stray a tad too far into artiness for my liking when Reeves heads off on the odd monologue on life but, thankfully this doesn't happen too often.

What does work is Reeves and Ryder bouncing off each other in scalpel like barbs whilst clearly both falling into each other. It's quite funny and quite clever at the same time. Bottom line is that I really enjoyed this because it was quite savagely funny in places.

I do have one criticism though. The sound quality in places. Now, I'm not deaf - despite working as an engineer offshore - and my medicals show this. But, there were times when it was quite hard to hear clearly the dialogue between Ryder and Reeves without excessive volume or straining at the lug holes. Not all the time but every so often the sound seemed to be muffled just enough to be not easily heard. And given the witty repartee is a bit of a shame.

Overall a better than average romantic(ish) comedy but not quite a straight forward rom-com.
