Synopsis [T]he over-riding theme of compromise and embracing traditions -- like jumping the broom, which can symbolize the sweeping away of single lives -- makes for relatable and appealing fare.[A] confident feature directorial debut....An exuberant comedy of universal appeal that easily flows between satire and seriousness.3 stars out of 4 -- The movie is elegantly photographed....The cast is large, well chosen and diverting.[D]irector Salim Akil keeps the encounters flowing in a lively, organic way....You'll laugh -- a lot -- but you'll also shed tears of recognition at this funny, salty, strife-torn look at the agony and ecstasy of family. -- Grade: A-Angela Bassett and Paula Patton headline this comedy about two vastly divergent African-American families who clash during a lavish weekend wedding at Martha's Vineyard.
