With an all-star cast led by Robert DeNiro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, with Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams, The Big Wedding is an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco. To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son's wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly halfway across the world to attend. With all of the wedding guests looking on, the Griffins are hilariously forced to confront their past, present and future - and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process. Screenplay by Justin Zackham. Directed by Justin Zackham.

This Week In Home Entertainment: The Muppet Movie, Girls Season 2 And More
Michael Bay scored one of the worst openings for one of his movies this weekend, but you won't hear him complaining too much. Turns out this was also one of his cheaper movies (one of only a few with a price tag less than $100 million). The $20 million debut was a comparably decent start against its non-special-effects-laden $26 million reported budget, and was enough to nab number on a slow weekend.

Weekend Box Office: Pain and Gain Pumps Up The Top Spot
Michael Bay's Pain & Gain cost a hell of a lot less than any other movie he's made, which means that this opening weekend comes with much lower stakes.
