Table 19 is where disgruntled ex-maid of honor Eloise (Anna Kendrick) finds herself after being sacked of her task, following on from being unceremoniously dumped by the best man via text, and she decides to attend the wedding anyway. However, this table is where all the ‘random’ guests are stuck together, so she finds herself with ‘him from Hot Tub Time Machine‘, ‘her from Friends‘, ‘him from The Office‘, ‘him from The Grand Budapest Hotel‘ etc.
Based on this trailer, with a random bag of numpties put together, it’s not exactly The Breakfast Club.
And, besides, I try to get invited to as few weddings as possible. Unless they’re for family, they’re a complete waste of a day.
Directed by Jeffrey Blitz, with a script by Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass, the cast also includes Amanda Crew, Lisa Kudrow, Wyatt Russell, Stephen Merchant and Tony Revolori, and I’ll be giving this a wide berth…
Table 19 is released in the UK on January 20th 2017, and as I’ve mentioned countless times, January/February are the worst months to get a film released that’s not in contention for the Oscars because it means it’s not worth a summer release.
