Have you ever felt the thrill of wanting to object at a wedding ceremony? Blame the movies for that! Weddings being disrupted is a common theme in cinema, and it has its own subgenre of “stop the wedding!” films. One recent addition to this genre is Polite Society, a fizzy comedy by Nida Manzoor. In this film, a teenager named Ria is on a mission to stop her sister’s wedding, believing it to be a bad idea. This film provides a humorous and endearing take on the theme, offering wish-fulfillment for anyone who has wanted to intervene in a loved one’s ill-advised marriage.
Margot at the Wedding is another dark comedy that explores the “stop the wedding!” concept. In this film, Nicole Kidman’s character disrupts her sister’s wedding with calculated precision, causing chaos and tension. The genre of romantic comedy also frequently features wedding disruptions, with films like The Philadelphia Story and Four Weddings and a Funeral showcasing memorable wedding sabotage. Even children’s movies like The Little Mermaid and Shrek use the “stop the wedding!” trope in their climactic moments. From comedic antics to violent twists, this subgenre of films offers a range of entertaining stories centered around disrupted weddings.
