Destination Wedding (2018)

Victor Levin directs Winona Ryder, Keanu Reeves and a mountain lion in this romantic comedy where two misanthropes bicker at the furthest table of a wedding.

A very boring, falsely verbose script dwindles away to nothing. If this wasn’t two beloved stars reunited then you wouldn’t finish it. Keanu feels slightly miscast as a grouch, Winona is animated and cute. They really do elevate a joyless prospect. Who would have been the pairing if they weren’t available? Christian Slater and Samantha Mathis? Nicolas Cage and Patricia Arquette? Judd Nelson and Molly Ringwald? Anna Chlumsky and Macaulay Culkin? Either way, nostalgia and a fittingly handsome setting repel a lot of sins.
