Reviews:

4.0         Cinerama Etcetera

Four Sisters and a Wedding is a gut-wrenching and heartwarming family drama-comedy that does the studio proud. It is intelligently written and smartly executed, owed mainly to the cohesiveness of the entire team’s effort, from the production down to the cast.” (Read full review)

3.5         Nestor Torre (Philippine Daily Inquirer)

“It is to the film’s credit that, despite its distracting and “retarding” flaws, “Four Sisters …” evinces a good measure of this artistic effectiveness and holds on to viewers’ hearts.” (Read full review)

3.5         Rito Asilo (Philippine Daily Inquirer)

Four Sisters and a Wedding occasionally goes off the rails when it takes protracted strides to give equal exposure to its lead actresses. But, we have to give props to director Garcia-Molina for pulling off a high-wire balancing act without scrimping on the chatty—and catty—charms of her cinematic muses.” (Read full review)

3.5         Maridol Rañoa-Bismark (Yahoo Philippines)

Four  Sisters and a Wedding makes us take a long, hard look at ourselves and the culture we grew up with.  And it doesn’t hurt because it makes us laugh at ourselves along the way.” (Read full review)

3.5         Yanni Fernan (Pinoy Weekly)

“Malaking tulong rito ang mahusay na pag-arte ng mga bituin, ang konsistent at makulay na script ni Vanessa Valdez (mula sa orihinal na sinulat ni Jose Javier Reyes), ang catchy at contemporary dialogue, ang mabilis at madulas na editing, at siyempre pa, ang mahusay na direksiyon.” (Read full review)

3.0         Oggs Cruz (Twitch)

“Because it aspires to appeal to the majority, its story clunks with unnecessary heft and it confuses with its inconsistent mood and temperament. However, to simply dismiss the movie for its intention to comfortably exist in a market that knows fully well what it wants is short-sighted.” (Read full review)

3.0          Jennifer Dugena (PEP)

“Cathy Garcia Molina seems an expert in combining both genres without audiences getting confused by this mix. However, for the sake of consistency, it wouldn’t hurt the story if the movie made up its mind and decided to be more dramatic than funny, or vice versa.” (Read full review)

3.0         Nicol Latayan (Tit for Tat)

“We see inspired storytelling in the dramatic parts of the movie, while the comedic ones were usually rehashed and less inspired.” (Read full review)

3.0         CBCP CINEMA

“Bagamat maganda ang ideya sa likod ng kwento hindi naman pinagbuhusan ng pansin ang pagbuo sa pagkatao ng bawat tauhan. Tama na yata ang magkaroon ng kaunting hugis ang personalidad at kaunting kulay kwento kahit mababaw at hilaw.” (Read full review)

2.5          Carljoe Javier (Rappler)

“The stories should have been interwoven, but instead, we just jumped between characters. There were so many strands of story, all of them potentially rich, that none of them were fully explored.” (Read full review)

2.5          Dale Bacar (DaleBacar.com)

“While the elements of the story could have made a decent drama special on television, the movie felt too cluttered especially when big scenes are forcibly placed just so equal screen time could be afforded to the popular leads.” (Read full review)

1.5          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The sister dynamic is genuinely worth exploring, and if the movie had actually spent most of its time just dealing with that, it might have turned out to be something quite exceptional. But the movie pairs those relationships with a contrived non-starter of a plot that relies on cartoonishly bad behavior.” (Read full review)
