Charlie (Charles Pfluger) and Josephine (Jill Clayburgh) are getting married - at her family, the Fishes' place on an island at the East Coast, and as much as he might love Josephine, he soon finds out the same isn't necessarily true for her family ... which he finds to be vast upon the wedding preparations. Of special interest or concern are of course her permanently stressed out mother (Valda Setterfield), her slightly odd father (Raymong McNally), her cousins Cecil (Robert De Niro) and Alistair (William Finley) - who at first insist on him being not good enough, then on throwing him a bachelor party, then forgetting to bring him along to then never get off his case again -, her cousin (Judy Thomas), who eventually tries to seduce him, her nanny (Sue Ann Gilfillan), who always pops up at the least convenient occasions, and of course the local reverend (John Braswell), who hasn't got a clue but tries to hammer home his point anyways. So it's no wonder that Charles eventually wants to take flight, and on the day of the wedding, too - but how far can you get being on an island with your wife's kin? ...


Allegedly made in 1963, this might have been Robert De Niro's very first movie - but due to massive issue (including the production company's bankrupcy) it hadn't been released until 1969. Be that as it may, it wouldn't be the last collaboration between Robert De Niro and Brian De Palma.


The movie itself ... sure as heck is an interesting one, a slightly absurd comedy that sits somewhere in between avant garde, nouvelle vague, and old fashioned slapstick, which shows later master director Brian De Palma (the only one of the trio that had a considerable career in that field) not yet at the height of his game, but as someone who can easily soak up cinematic styles and turn them into something fresh - and thus, the result is a light-footed little film that can't deny it's from the 1960s with all the cultural upheaval that happened then, but it has aged well, thanks not only to slick direction and a fun script but also a great ensemble cast (with a good but admittedly not at the height of his game De Niro in it) and a general laissez faire attitude to everything that seems to have gone from movies in general since ...
