**Brilliant, but panned by predictable critics**
(SPOILERS TOWARDS END!)
I don’t always agree with (or heed warnings) from movie critics; perhaps because I used to be one myself in a nation wide magazine many years ago — but if a movie has a 40% rating on Metacritic, I admit it rarely bodes well. Still I watched this, largely due to the involvement of several favorite actors and the script having been written by the Duplass brothers.
I found it almost instantly both funny and moving, and the longer I watched, the more confused I became as to why most critics had been lukewarm or downright dismissive of it. I figured it had to be mostly due to the genre blend of comedy and more dramatic issues, and that probably most of the criticism had been along the usual lines of “can’t make up it’s mind’, etc. But even so, that didn’t add up to a meager 40% rating, with such a clever script and great acting.
When the credits rolled, I knew instantly why: A happy ending…
It all mostly works out in the end for the oddball protagonists. Critics in general can’t stand it. If a movie has had a degree of realism and/or several dark or borderline dark-ish issues brought up along the way, critics tend to go ******* unless it all ends in misery, or largely unresolved, or at the very least in ambiguity. God forbid you walk away from such a movie actually feeling good; that equals ‘cheesy’ in most reviewers book. Was it realistic that most of the people involved got a happy, somewhat romantic ending? Of course not, but though the movie tackles several ‘real’ issues within the comedy, I found the ending perfectly fitting with the tone of it. Critics often use the word ‘predictable’ about anything that has a hint of romantic comedy in it, but I’d say, there are few things as predictable as movie critics in general.
If you want to read what I consider a spot on review for this, check out Empire Magazine, who went against the stream and gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
**It was not a table of honour!**
I thought it was some B movie. Expecting anything from it is like a total waste. But that was not the case. I was surprised how simple it was, yet very entertaining. Not all the small films like this would do the same magic. Everything in the was like I already seen in other films, even though I enjoyed it thoroughly.
It was a one-day event tale and in the backdrop of a wedding. In that, the film focused on one particular table, the table number 19 on the outskirt the dining hall. They all came from different background and never met before. They learn about each other, and their personal issues open up during the cerebration. Apart from that, they mess up a few things and later try to fix it, that all comes into play before it reaches the end.
From the director of ‘Rocket Science’, which came a decade ago, also starred by Anna Kendrick. I think he is a fine director, at least in small comedies with the good quality screenplay. So he should be doing more feature films than the television series. I was impressed by Kendrick. Her choices of films might not be the greatest, but she’s almost there and very soon going to give a career best for sure. The remaining cast was funnily good.
I think this film deserves a sequel. Because the film characters are very distinctive and has left behind a lot about them which need to be revealed. Sequel or prequel, it does not matter, but I’ll be surely looking for one. Look at its cost, just $5 million. Big production houses can give away such tiny amount without expecting any returns.
You might see it rated low everywhere, but for me, it is a good comedy. One of the best small budget films. Yeah, the end was very clichéd, but acceptable for such film. I would definitely suggest it for those who won’t anticipate in films they watch. Particularly if you prefer simple storyline and a few laughs, it is the one.
A Funny Movie For All Misfits
This is a pleasant, enjoyable movie that will appeal to everyone- especially those who are on the outskirts of life and do not quite fit in. Anna Kendrick is one of six characters who have been invited to a wedding. Each of the characters does not quite fit the mold of someone you would really enjoy hanging out with so they are seated at a table far away from the bride and groom. Kendrick is the ex-girlfriend of the bride’s brother and she still pines for him. The others are a group of quirky characters. Those at Table 19 slowly begin to learn about each other and work together to help Kendrick and each other through a series of mishaps. This leads to a number of scenes that will have you chuckling throughout the movie.
Charming to a Fault
I’ve been reviewing films off and on for about five years. And if there is one thing I’ve learned about criticism is that the vast, unchallenged mean between absolutely great movies and downright terrible ones hides a lot of non-committal fence sitting. I’m guilty of it myself; in today’s age of instant self-gratification, it’s easy to cobble together a knee-jerk opinion based on someone else’s ideas. Problem is those ideas, whether valid or not, sometimes creates a subterfuge of undeserved hype or undeserved vitriol depending on the circumstance. They feed a cycle of wafer-thin subjectivity masquerading as authoritative proof of something’s worth. This is why, for example a movie like Equilibrium (2002) can be seen as something more than a splashy Matrix (1999) rip-off while movies like Mystery Team (2009) are swept under the rug.
So it is with Table 19, a movie no one will likely see because the critical consensus is so bad that it’s created its own negative feedback loop. Table 19 takes place over the course of several hours of a wedding reception at a rustic hotel lodge. As the happy couple celebrates their new marriage amid friends and family, a small group of strangers sit at the back table, forcing uncomfortable banter and gracelessly ignoring the reason for their position in the back. Among them are the argumentative Kepps (Kudlow and Robinson), the dotty Ms. Jo (Squibb), gawky teen Renzo (Revolori), distant cousin Walter (Merchant) and Eloise (Kendrick) the disgraced ex-Maid of Honor who was dumped by the Best Man (Russell).
To say Table 19 is “ridiculous and a mess,” is a bit of an understatement. As critics rightly point out, the pacing is stop and go, the editing is slapdash and the high-concept simply doesn’t have the wherewithal to make it through a feature-length movie. Once the initial awkward niceties are flushed under the force of the first big narrative reveal, the film descends into a checklist of soapy plot-points and lazy character short hands. Much like 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag (a similarly imperfect ensemble farce), Table 19 klutzily mixes its farcical elements with broad, sweeping story setups and has them slosh about until the runtime wears out. On top of it all, the tone shifts wildly depending on who you’re following at the time.
Thing is, I actually liked 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag, and I liked Table 19 too for much the same reason. The characters, as broad as they may be at times never ceased to entertain; Stephen Merchant’s portrayal as a familial pariah Franken-walking through the banquet hall is worth the admission price alone. As are Renzo’s far too honest conversations with his mother (Martindale in a superb unseen role) which mostly consist of him rolling his eyes while she pushes him to “get laid already.” Behind the Kepps’ increasingly hostile quibbling and Grandma Jo’s insistence that she’ll be remembered (just you wait), lays a unified feeling of melancholy.
That feeling of melancholy along with some solid comedic setups and payoffs permeate through the film’s cosmetic faults. Every time you’re distracted by an awkward cut or taken aback by some of the more hammy moments, the film quickly lulls you back with its quixotic charm.
Helping to dry up this mess and put it back into a nice looking bucket is the relentless Anna Kendrick who by now has turned the neurotic jilted girl archetype into a symbol of quasi-empowerment. While she wins no brownie points for that here, there’s something near noble about the way she throws herself into the fray. She easily elevates an already stellar cast and sells the hell out of the movies main conceit.
Much like the twangy banjo version of Pachabel’s Canon in D that plays over the film’s title sequence, Table 19 is a unique version of a very old cultural tradition. It’s certainly not the best version of what it could be but with more than a handful of charming performances, this delightful little farce deserves a little better than the wedding inspired japes it’s been getting from critics. Perhaps it’s a case of ugly duckling syndrome on my part, but I’m going to go ahead and say “I Do” to this one.
