NYT Review: Review: ‘Jenny’s Wedding,’ a Lecture on Tolerance

This movie, directed by Mary Agnes Donoghue and starring Katherine Heigl as a closeted lesbian, is about secrets, lies and bigotry. — Jeannette Catsoulis Read the review

In the moments where she finally becomes angry, Heigl's pugnacious qualities serve her well; her rage is pure, cleansing and righteous in defense of her life.

Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times, 2015-07-30

 

One of the many irritants in this trite, well-intentioned lecture on tolerance: The audience is always several moves ahead of the script.

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 2015-07-30

 

This is a movie displaced in time. And it's barely a movie. It's more like a dusty, faded old pamphlet: "So your daughter's decided to get gay-married..."

Noel Murray, AV Club, 2015-07-30

 

It all feels outdated, simplistic and insulting to both the characters and the audience.

Katharine Pushkar, New York Daily News, 2015-07-29

 

Harps on the retrograde ideas that women should all aspire to be married, and happiness is a permanent state of being that the virtuous can achieve.

Aaron Hillis, Village Voice, 2015-07-28

 

"Jenny's Wedding" isn't ill-intentioned or actively bad; it's just a little too familiar, a little too safe and a little too satisfied with itself.

James Rocchi, TheWrap, 2015-07-13

 

Plays like a series of hand-holding growth exercises for closed-minded conservatives, and relies too heavily on its tying-the-knot finale for both dramatic momentum and emotional closure.

Justin Chang, Variety, 2015-07-13

 

There's a fine, fierce film somewhere in Jenny's Wedding, trying to claw its way out from under all the cliches, speechifying and sappy pop music.

Jon Frosch, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-07-12
