Heigl shines! Neither the movie's 'theme' nor Heigl deserve to be trashed

The single review, as I post this, trashes the movie as 20 years too late and Heigl's films as bomb after bomb as her career gets ready to crash. Way too harsh. Many, many movies are based on recurring themes i.e. man meets woman, falls for her BUT she is engaged to another. This movie's theme, gay daughter (or son)who has not come out to her parents has been a standard dramcom theme for many years. To say this theme is 20 years too late is to say there are no longer young adults who are in the closet when it comes to their conservative, main street USA parents which, of course, is not the case. You could probably due a current version of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and even that could still work. The very title, Jenny's Wedding, which is a central them of the movie fits in with the new current waive of legal gay marriages which did not and could not have happened twenty years ago.

MOST of the 500 who have seen this film gave it thumbs up. Even the one negative review I am referring to ends by saying it was 'somewhat entertaining.' I assume that is akin to being somewhat 'alive' ... a very good thing to be.

As for Heigl's crashing career not so fast. She continues to entertain us with films such as 27 Dresses with its respectable 6.1 rating. Her recent departure, black comedy Home Sweet Hell has some great moments, twists and turns with split 50/50 rating. I gave it my thumbs up.

Jenny's Weddng is charming, funny, emotional and true to the angst so many face when coming out to their conservative family. Castnig is first rate with Heigl doing one her best performances. Tom Wilkinson was a great pick for her father. Her mother, played by Linda Emond, was awesome in her many moving, dramatic scenes. Jenny's siblings added to the very real obstacles to many dealing with their wish to come out. The movie musical score was also first rate. All in all I totally enjoyed this best ever effort by Heigl. Since it has been under rated I shall over rate it a tad. Big thumbs up.

20 Years Too Late

What could have been a very important and thought provoking movie, Jenny's Wedding falls completely flat. Katherine Heigl plays herself as she has in most of her movies. Bomb after bomb has brought us full circle to her post Grey's Anatomy career where her celebrity wave is about ready to crash. Although it is another one of her typical acting roles that she has had since 2007's Knocked Up, the role of Jenny is one of her best opportunities to show that she is a good actress. However, the subject matter is beyond out dated to this point. If this movie was to come out in 1995, then the critics would have been talking about how taboo and thought provoking this movie is. To play it safe, Jenny's Wedding premieres in 2015 where the subject matter is no longer on the "front burner." The supporting cast is as strong as their leading lady. Ir should I say ladies. The Lifetime style direction only adds to the basic 90 minute movie that leaves the audience somewhat entertained and far from informed about the journey Jenny goes through to keep the love for her family. Nothing special nothing new. In fact, Jenny's Wedding is far from anything new.

nice coming out movie

5.3 is way too low for this movie. An emotional family drama dealing with an uptight family's anxieties and prejudices and although the film is a fantasy and on the side of the angels it plays out what should happen if a family had to turn round and accept what is unacceptable to them. It is nice to see a main stream film that is not just the usual tired romantic comedy.

The actors do a good job. Tom Wilkinson and Linda Edmonde are excellent as the parents and have the meaty roles to play as they have the difficult journey to take. Family dynamics are played out well as a background to the story as well as the social network that the parents live in.
