Table 19 – review

A table of misfits go to a wedding when they probably should have stayed at home, watched Netflix and eaten ice cream.

Wow forget the idea of this movie being a comedy because Table 19 is not funny. There may be a terrible gag about destroying a wedding cake but after that this film gets serious and not just serious but miserable. Unwanted pregnancy, broken marriage, incurable cancer it is all here and characters we haven’t bonded with because they are on the weird, awkward wedding table, we are expected to care about what is happening, we don’t. Even though we were completely blindsided by these issues as this film was pitched as a comedy.

Anna Kendrick doesn’t even get to sing.

This is an hour and a half you won’t get back. Avoid.
