It's like the writers aren't even trying anymore

If you are writing for a 2 hour movie, why do you have two weddings in the last five minutes?

Most of the movie involves a senior wedding and whether it is right to marry so impulsively. Finally, after the whole movie they stage a three minute wedding - this your reward for the last hour and 55 minutes. The wedding couldn't be stretched to a whole 5 minutes, because they added another wedding for the last two minutes.

If that isn't enough, Alan Thicke is a total load in this movie. He is patting himself on the back through this movie on how skilled an actor he is.

This movie plays like actors had some free time and just wanted to make a quick buck.

I really enjoy watching Rachel Boston, but this wasn't a good vehicle.

Just your average hallmark movie

I find hallmark movie enjoyable but this plot was like the others the main characters don't want his dad and her aunt to get married,aunt finds out gets mad and the other characters changes their mind the end. Overall watchable stories but the two main characters were annoying.

Meddling with love

Have liked Niall Matter and Rachel Boston, both Hallmark regulars, in other things. Was less sure of the premise, which was another one that could go either way of charming and fun or contrived and dumb, was really hoping it would be the former and Hallmark have made unappealing premises work. Was also not crazy about most of the 2016 June Wedding Hallmark films, with the best one by far being 'Wedding Bells' (the only one this reviewer liked to be honest). So expectations were not high.

Also regrettably did not have a particularly high opinion of 'Stop the Wedding'. It is another film that does little to make the premise more appealing, though it does start off quite well and has some amusing moments, and have also seen better performances from Matter and particularly Boston. 'Stop the Wedding' is not a terrible film and is much better than 'The Convenient Groom' and especially 'Ms Matched' (really disliked both those films), but 'Wedding Bells' it is not.

It does have good things. Although Matter has been better elsewhere with more likeable characters, he still comes off quite well and does well not overplaying or going through the motions (not an easy thing to achieve with the type of character he has). Alan Thicke was quite fun and makes the most of what he is given to work with.

Did also think that 'Stop the Wedding' started with some promise, with some easy going charm and amusement. It is pleasingly filmed with a nice setting and didn't have a problem with the film musically either, other Hallmark films have fared far worse in this aspect.

'Stop the Wedding' has a number of debits. Boston badly overacts with too many exaggerated mannerisms and some very shouty line delivery. Also really didn't like her character, who comes over as really selfish and at times whiny, and she and Matter never seem at ease together, with their chemistry too strained and at times trying too hard for laughs. Their relationship is very implausibly rushed very early on, which badly undoes the film, with too much of a known each other for years vibe almost instantaneously when it was obvious that it was meant to really the opposite.

The story is very messy and erratically paced, after a promising start too many developments are rushed, leaving things far fetched and confused, and then halfway through the plotting thinned out. It also became increasingly predictable and became little more than a mundane cobbling together of typical Hallmark cliches and very forced and try too hard wacky humour that has been seen before. The dialogue is awkward and cheesy, especially in the comedic moments later on, and motivations are left very vague or extreme (both in the case of the reasoning for the wedding stopping).

Concluding, watchable but tries too hard. 5/10.
