    The Wedding Banquet 1993

    An achingly realistic film that bursts with heart-felt moments. Definitely a roller-coaster ride of emotions; one minute you're laughing, the next you're on the verge of tears.

    ★★★ Added

    Not my favorite Alexander Payne film, but still a decent one. The acting, of course, is top-notch, along with the script (mainly the dialogue). However, something felt like it was missing from the film, leaving me feeling a bit empty when it was over.

    The action sequences are realistic and well shot, if not entirely repetitive after awhile. Gina Carano's horrible acting is magnified by the stellar cast surrounding her, making her performance all the more unbearable. And finally, the script is wafer thin, predictable and just plain boring.
