Margot at the Wedding Review

I don't know if I've ever seen a movie with more completely and utterly unlikeable characters as this. The characters come off as so unlikeable, every singly one of them, that it makes it very difficult to remain engaged in the film. The film's screenplay is highly pretentious and overly talky to boot. Nicole Kidman seems to be trying but her character is unworkable. Jack Black is awful; his crying scenes are so poorly performed that I really can't believe they're meant to be taken seriously. Jennifer Jason Leigh is surprisingly good, however, and is, by far, the most tolerable aspect of the movie. Though it has a few funny moments and a decent performance from Leigh I really can't recommend it.

Overall Score: 4/10
