WEDDING BELL BLUES – Movieguide

“Bridesmaids In Black “

What You Need To Know:

WEDDING BELL BLUES is an unfunny justification of premarital sex and “love in the ‘90’s.” Based on a morally bankrupt premise that it is better to turn thirty as divorced women than to turn thirty as old maids, Micki, Tanya and Jasmine go to Las Vegas to seek husbands. Micki’s fiancee dumped her because of her lack of passion. Tanya is heartbroken because she has discovered that she is pregnant and her boyfriend is not ready for marriage or a family. Jasmine, who claims to have slept with more than 100 men, doesn’t think she’ll ever get married and doesn’t see what the big deal is.

The premise of WEDDING BELL BLUES’ is improbable, since very few people would get married so that other people would not think that they were pathetic spinsters. The only voice of reason in this movie comes from a man who refuses to marry Tanya because he believes that love is the only valid reason for marriage. Regrettably, the three woman in this movie try to justify adultery and premarital sex. The R-rating on this film comes from their unabashed sex talk, which doesn’t shed any light on the female point of view of relationships with the opposite gender other than the quest for pleasure.

Content:

(Pa, Ro, LLL, S, A, D, M) Pagan worldview of love & marriage with many romantic elements; 7 obscenities & 6 profanities, lots of graphic sexual talk; extensive implied fornication but none depicted; alcohol use & drunkenness; smoking; and, miscellaneous immorality including implied abortion

More Detail:

WEDDING BELL BLUES is an unfunny justification of premarital sex and “love in the ‘90’s.” Based on a morally bankrupt premise that it is better to turn thirty as divorced women than to turn thirty as old maids, three beauties, Micki (Julie Warner), Tanya (Paulina Porizkova) and Jasmine (Illeana Douglas), go to Las Vegas to seek husbands. This far-fetched, laughable set up gets absurdly complicated.

Micki is distraught because her fiancee dumped her due to a lack of passion in their relationship. On her way to Las Vegas, Micki admits to Tanya and to Jasmine that she has never had an orgasm. While Tanya encourages her to try autoeroticism, Jasmine encourages her to keep trying with lovers. Tanya is heartbroken because she has discovered that she is pregnant and her boyfriend says that he is not ready for marriage or for a family. Self-proclaimed slut Jasmine (who admits to having slept with more than 100 men) doesn’t think she will ever get married and doesn’t see what the big deal is.

On arriving in Las Vegas, they order champagne and caviar on Micki’s ex-boyfriend’s credit card. Micki meets a cowboy, whom she believes to be a sweet and kind man by the end of the evening. They get married, and, after many tries in a barn, she has her first orgasm. Tanya tries to marry a rich, short, unattractive man who wants to get married, so that he can send his ex-wife a picture. In the end, Tanya confesses that she is pregnant and was going to pretend that he was the father. Jasmine hits it off with an engineer. They get drunk and (you guessed it) have sex.

The next day, Micki’s cowboy shows up at the hotel room. To Micki’s dismay, he hugs her and hands her his address so that she can send him the divorce papers, and let him know how she is doing. By movie’s end, Tanya has had an abortion, and Jasmine resumes her relationship with the engineer she met in Las Vegas. Micki marries her former ex-fiancee, because her night with the cowboy taught her how to bring out passion in her sex life, which she now teaches to her husband.

The immoral premise of WEDDING BELL BLUES is improbable, since very few people would decide to get married as a joke. Very few people would subordinate the sacred choice of a husband or of a wife to the fear of other people thinking that they were pathetic spinsters, or old men. In this immoral movie, the only voice of reason comes from the man who refuses to marry Tanya because he believes that love is the only valid reason for marriage. This man tells Tanya that if she wants “the picket fence,” she must not try to force a man to marry her.

While physically attractive, the three female protagonists in this immoral movie make insipid comments throughout the film, trying to justify adultery and premarital sex, adding little to the already feeble storyline. The R-rating on this film comes from their unabashed sex talk, which doesn’t shed any light on the female point of view of relationships with the opposite gender other than the quest for pleasure.
