Altman's attempt to repeat the magic formula of Nashville, by concentrating on the interweaving relationships between a large number of guests at a wealthy society wedding, is flawed by an often sadly unimaginative script, which lampoons obvious targets as it clears the skeletons out of the two families' closets. The staging of the action is as exhilarating as ever, and there are glorious moments in the twisted, kaleidoscopic narrative; finally, however, the effect seems curiously contrived and complacent. Entertaining, though, thanks to the top-notch ensemble acting.
