This movie doesn't disappoint. I'm glad that Del Shores developed these delightful characters to a logical resolution with this long overdue sequel. Whoopi Goldberg's appearance in the movie is cast perfectly and her dialogue sums the plot up so very nicely. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed this special screening at Texas Tech University, as well as the Q & A with Del Shores following the movie.
Incredible film! It's a "must-see" movie. (by rweissman)
"A Very Sordid Wedding" is an incredibly funny, yet very important film. The movie combines humor and it is roll-in-the-aisles-side-splitting funny, so get ready to laugh out loud , wonderful writing, serious performances from its remarkable cast, with a deep insight into how the LGBT movement goes forward by confronting religious intolerance in America's churches. After all these years, we are again visited by the comical cast and characters of the "Sordid Lives" story. Del Shores, Emerson Collins and the remarkable cast outdid themselves with this movie. This film <more>
is the best one I have seen in a long, long time and should be a "must-see" movie for everyone. This movie will soon be seen as a classic. Go see it!
There's a backstory, but the movie works well even if you don't know it (by Red-125)
A Very Sordid Wedding 2017 was written and directed by Del Shores. In 2000, Shores directed Sordid Lives, and, after that, there was a Sordid Lives series on LOGO. Everyone in the theater apparently knew all about LOGO, but I had to look it up. Before we saw the movie, we read the publicity that told us that there was a backstory to this new movie. However, for us the movie was hilarious, so you can enjoy it without knowing the backstory.The film is set in Winters, Texas. It's a great example of a conservative, Bible-oriented small town. However, there are some dissenting people among <more>
the crowd. One of them is Latrelle Williamson, played perfectly by Bonnie Bedelia. The other cast members are also very good actors, including Leslie Jordan as Earl 'Brother Boy' Ingram, and Emerson Collins as Billy Joe Dobson.Whoopi Goldberg has an important cameo role as Rev. Abernatha Coleman. This is the type of movie that's hard to describe. Something funny happens, and then something funnier happens, and then all hell breaks loose. It will work on the small screen, but it would be better in a theater. This isn't because of the larger image. It's because once an audience starts to laugh during a movie like this, the laughter builds on itself, and everything appears even funnier. In fact, if you see the movie on the small screen, invite some friends over to watch it with you. Del Shores and Emerson Collins attended the screening and participated in a Q&A session afterwards. I didn't have a question, but I had a comment: "My compliments on portraying a serial killer in such a way that you felt sympathy, rather than anger, towards him." That couldn't have been easy.We saw this film at Rochester's excellent Little Theatre, as part of Image Out, the great Rochester LGBT Film Festival. This is a wonderful movie, and worth seeking out.
Following up a quirky classic is unlikely to strike like lightning twice but Del Shores and the ensemble cast really delivered!It was really great to get another look into the lives of all the characters I loved in Sordid Lives but 15 years later. The story is current and the dialog never lags. I'll have to watch it again because the theater audience laughed so long at many points, I couldn't hear the next few lines. Despite mixing in a few new actors and a couple VERY interesting new characters, the original magic doesn't get lost. Actually, it blossoms. I think the surprise <more>
performance comes from the character Roger, the hairdresser. No spoilers, but this secondary character steals the scenes a few times and tugs at your heart at the same time. Caroline Rhea gets kudos for her hysterical on-screen performance but apparently is also responsible for pulling Whoopi Goldberg into the cast.The actors that played Dr. Eve and Wardell attended tonight's sold out SF showing and lingered in front of the theater talking to lots of people telling many fun behind- the-scenes history and stories. Who knew they were married to each other in real life?I've already pre-ordered the DVD.
I will always Love Sordid Lives forever. This is a must SEE CRAZY FUNNY !!! (by danielkinney)
My only complaint was BETH GRANT not playing SISSY. I know it will still be good. I am watching it right now. I wish Beth Grant could have worked out something with Del Shores , it. just won't be the same. IT would like somebody trying to play BRO BOY LESLIE JORDAN it would be like using JACK from WILL AND GRACE TO PLAY BRO BOY. I ALSO miss our GOLDEN GIRL, Rue McClanahan RIP . I will say this the person he got to play Sissy , just does not bring the FUNNY of our Beloved SISSY HICKY. I have loved her in all her movies. no one can replace BETH GRANT the original SISSY. I think Del maybe <more>
should have waited to do this at a later date when BETH GRANT could do it, and a bigger budget. NO one wants to say anything bad about our SORDID LIVES because we love them. But as some have pointed out this may have been done on a quick dime. I wish I had a few million $$$ to loan him to make this what it once was. I would have paid $5Million to Beth Grant just to get her to do it.
A great reunion of "Sordid Lives" characters (by robbiex-94449)
We really enjoyed this "reunion of "Sordid Lives" characters, picking up the original story line some 17 years later. We loved the characters in the first film, and it was fun to see what happened to each since then. It was great to see Ty, who had been struggling to accept his sexuality in the first film. Now Ty is married to handsome Kyle, and they both are gay rights activists as they try to get married in each U.S. state. They finally return to Ty's hometown in Texas to fight the religious bigotry Ty endured there as a teenager. We also enjoyed watching Brother Boy, now <more>
long-since released from the mental hospital, but still haunted by Dr. Eve Evil . I loved Latrelle, sisters Sissy and Vera, neighbor Noleta, and bar friends C.W., Wardell, Juanita I forget. and Odell in the first film. I was happy to how they turned out in this film. If you loved "Sordid Lives" and know people like all these comical characters, you will love "A Very Sordid Wedding." The film is a blast!
