Who doesn’t love a good wedding, right? A joyous occasion where two people who are in love with each other, finally come together, in the presence of their loved ones. It does sound beautiful. But what happens when this wedding includes an extremely dysfunctional family who also happens to be chaotic beyond reason? That is probably the best way to sum up the upcoming comedy movie, titled, The People We Hate at the Wedding.
The title might be a little longer for our taste but despite that, it gives us a fair idea of what the movie might look like. There will definitely be a wedding and not a very normal one. It hasn’t been too long since Amazon Prime announced this movie, but it surely has taken the internet by storm. So we’re here to tell you everything you need to know about it. From the plot to the cast, to the release date and much more.
What is the Plot of The People We Hate at the Wedding?
The thing about weddings is, that more of than not, people are obliged to invite their friends and family, even those that they don’t necessarily want around. Just like that, The People We Hate at the Wedding follows two siblings, Alice and Paul, along with their mother, who are all invited to their half-sister’s wedding. Neither Paul nor Alice are thrilled about this invite, but again, it’s all about obligations, trying to be a family, and maybe even acting as they all care about each other.
Now, the American family travels all the way to the United Kingdom to attend a wedding, begrudgingly. What ensues further is pure chaos from start to finish. The family is less than perfect and they are not ready for what’s about to hit them. In this article, we will also talk about the trailer and the cast, which will give all of you a better idea of what to expect from this movie.
The Cast of The People We Hate at the Wedding
The People We Hate at the Wedding boasts a star-studded cast. There are some very prominent names in the upcoming comedy, and they are all veterans of this genre. Most of these actors and actresses are known for their comic roles in moves and tv shows. Playing the role of Alice, we have none other than Kristen Bell, who is best known for her work in the show The Good Place. There is also Ben Platt who will be playing the role of Alice’s brother, and you might recognise him from the film series Pitch Perfect.
Apart from these two brilliant cast members, we will also have the pleasure of seeing Allison Janney, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, John Macmillan, Karan Soni, Jorma Taccone, Annie Murphy, Dustin Milligan, Tony Goldwyn and Julian Ovenden.
