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It all feels outdated, simplistic and insulting to both the characters and the audience.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