Running Time: 115 minutes
In this energetic romp that takes audiences behind the scenes of an extravagant wedding party, we meet Max, a grumbling wet blanket who wants out of the event planning business after decades of pleasing thrifty couples at the expense of his sanity. This wedding, however, is a feast of opulence and excess that lets the master transform a 17th Century French château into a mecca of marital bliss. As with any wedding, not everything goes quite as planned and the cast of characters frantically working backstage and front of house must do whatever is necessary to maintain appearances. Max's oft-repeated pragmatic motto is "We need to adapt" and he believes it. And you know what they say...C'est la vie!
