Table 19 is a comedy that is not perfect yet it has some good moments
I am a fan of comedies. When they are done right I find myself laughing until it hurts. Most of them try to hard and end not being that funny. Table 19 is not your normal comedy. I was able to see it earlier this week and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Table 19 here:
Ex-maid of honor Eloise (Anna Kendrick) having been relieved of her duties after being unceremoniously dumped by the best man via text, decides to hold her head high and attend her oldest friend’s wedding anyway. She finds herself seated at the random table in the back of the ballroom with a disparate group of strangers, most of whom should have known to just send regrets. As everyone’s secrets are revealed, Eloise learns a thing or two from the denizens of Table 19.
Table 19 is not a bad film. Yet it wasn’t that funny either. The best thing about this film in my eyes was the awkward romantic moments. As strange as they sometimes were, they were the most genuine part of the whole movie. The soundtrack was not bad with tons of good 80’s music. There were also a few interesting twists that came up as the plot developed. Yet this film is not that hard to predict most of the time. Not a terrible comedy, but not the best I have seen lately either. If you want to learn more about Table 19 click on this website.
Table 19 gets 6/10. I won’t say I hated this film, it just had far too many jokes that fell flat too often. The film is full of some odd characters yet they are the ones that give some of the best performances in this movie. It won’t be for everyone yet some people will want to see this film.
