Wedding Cinema

With the recent UK openings of two wedding movies--Margot at the Wedding and The Accidental Husband, film critic Joe Queenan told the BBC that wedding films never go out of fashion - and never will.

"Weddings make perfect subjects for cinema because most films involve finding a solution to a thorny problem, and weddings are nothing if not a thorny problem," Queenan says. "A friend of mine suggested that women who have been through all the rigmarole of planning a wedding enjoy watching wedding films, because finally someone else has to go through the hell they went through."

What is your favorite wedding movie? Why do you think wedding movies are so popular?
