Reviews:

4.0        Nicol Latayan (Back to the Frying Pan)

“This is no Kasal Kasali Kasalo, but the movie is enjoyable in many levels.” (Read full review)

3.5        Mental Clutter

“An anti-mother-in-law film with a predictable story but a really witty script. It’s not corny, but Gonzaga was just too much. Overall it’s a typical Jose Javier Reyes film.” (Read full review)

3.0        Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The film finds interesting new comedy in the road to annulment, but backs away when it hits the really meaty stuff. Wedding Tayo, Wedding Hindi is fun enough, but it gives up on its most intriguing threads a little too quickly.” (Read full review)

3.0        Carl Papa (Whatever, Carl)

“I admire how controlled the movie was.  It did not go overboard comedy that it would have to result to silly editing and fast forward scenes.  And the drama was just enough not to go crossover from comedy to uber-drama.” (Read full review)

2.0        Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

Wedding Tayo, Wedding Hindi represents the leftover ideas that didn’t quite make it in the final cuts of Jose Javier Reyes’ successful Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo and its sequel Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo. Way until the rolling of credits, we were waiting for the rousing cinematic payoff that made wedding romcoms mostly irresistible, but this one failed to deliver.” (Read full review)

2.0        Don Jaucian (The Almanac of Fall)

“This film actually had the potential to be a relevant film. With the debate about the divorce bill and the increasing need to safeguard the ideals of the Filipino family, Wedding Tayo veers away from serious talk as if it is a curse that would bog down Toni Gonzaga’s insistent use of dated gayspeak and elevator vocals.” (Read full review)

2.0       Pink Fox Patrol

“There are some funny scenes due mainly to Eugene Domingo’s fantastic delivery.  I haven’t really warmed up to Toni’s portrayal of her character but she can be funny at times.  Both Zanjoe and Wendell cut dashing figures as their beaus.  I forgot the story soon as I left the theater and I suggest you just buy the DVD since there’s nothing much here that has not been done before.” (Read full review)

1.5        Regnard Raquedan (Screen Sucked)

“Is the movie funny? If your idea of humor is the one you see in sitcoms and noon-time variety shows, then you will have  a belly-aching experience. Otherwise, the film is a huge ‘MEH’ in the comedy department.” (Read full review)

1.0        Richard Bolisay (Lilok Pelikula)

Wedding Tayo Wedding Hindi! tramples on the same theme and concerns; however, it’s obviously done in haste and poor taste. Otherwise, Toni wouldn’t be talking in dated gay speak gratingly, or Eugene’s acting wouldn’t be so annoyingly forced, or the entire movie wouldn’t be so pedestrian it deserves a towing service.”  (Read full review)

1.0        Reel Advice

“The thing about Wedding Tayo, Wedding Hindi is it fails to capture your attention. In fact, for a comedy film, this is the most boring we have ever watched.” (Read full review)

3.0        Json Javier (Member, Cinephiles)

“Better than I expected. Joey Reyes is a gifted writer. Loud and screechy at times but undeniably funny.”

3.0        Skilty Labastilla (Member, Young Critics Circle)

“Reyes once again mines the carnival atmosphere of Pinoy weddings. This time, he adds a story about marital separation, which is not a usual topic for Pinoy comedies. The movie succeeds in conjuring up funny situations but, being a Star Cinema product, still gets encumbered with a silly ending.”

2.5        Lyndon Maburaot (Member, Cinephiles)

“Long shot from Reyes’ better efforts: One Night Only and Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo.”
