    Featuring all the tension and the squabbling and the complete, nonsensical silliness, ABC's Big Day is a ''real-time'' breakdown of a couple's wedding day, half hour by excruciating half hour. Posh, shallow, overblown nuptials are a very short leash to chain a comedy to: In the first three episodes available for review, there are a dozen nasty fights about such ridiculous topics as seating charts and the questionable merits of Caesar salad. We all know people can get goofy over flower arrangements and chocolate drizzle cake, but knowing that and wanting to see it each week are two very different things. Likable characters can get away with random fits of insanity; Big Day has no likable characters. Perhaps for the sake of gender equality, there is no single Bridezilla here — everyone acts like an idiot. The groom (Four Kings' Josh Cooke) is a daffy, oblivious man-boy; the bride (The Practice's Marla Sokoloff) is a rich baby-girl prone to weeping; her mom (Just Shoot Me's Wendie Malick) is an uptight, controlling matron. Malick, with her regal carriage, can occasionally pull off a shimmer of a laugh. But just a shimmer.



    It takes a very clever hand to make irritating situations amusing. Both Father of the Bride movies (mostly) managed this because they had amiable — if manic — personalities. Big Day has only a bunch of stereotypical self-centered brats (here comes the bride's randy ex-boyfriend!) darting in and out of rooms, worrying about mojito bars and crepe stations. No one wants to be like those people — and no one should have to watch them.moreless
  • Big Day is uneventful

    4.5
    The gimmick of a "24"-style wedding day show is a hard one to launch and sustain. It has to be clever, funny, and witty enough to last. "Big Day" didn't get through that, probably because people are not as interested in weddings as studios assume (read: "The Wedding Bells," "The Wedding Album").



    "Big Day" included a lot of frantic characters and events leading up to the couple's wedding in 24 hours. It doesn't work because the quirky-ness is forced and unfunny. For example, they had a revolving joke about getting orgasmic foot massages. That is so passe and not risque. The one thing that makes Big Day work is the cast. Wendi Malick is always reliably funny and Marla Sokoloff is charming, natural, and deserves MUCH better. I hope after "Big Day," Marla is able to do something much better and that can utilize her immense talents.moreless
  • What!!???

    8.0
    I watched this show from day one becasue I'm getting married and I thought oh that will be neat to see a wedding show. But after each episode I kept asking my self why do i keep watching this show it's so unreallistic. Too many things went wrong in one day. I watch every episode and then it never even showed them get married. Come on you drag out this lame show and then never actualy show the wedding?? What? On the episode list it said that there was another after the cermony but it never aired on tv. I don't think there will be a season two of this show.moreless
  • Hope it comes back for another season.

    This is a good show and I hope it comes back for a second season. I wounder what is going to happen if it comes for another season I hope it does because it is really good and it shows you how hard it is to plan your wedding and how stressfull it is but at the end every thing is ok. The couple that are the main characters getting married are really cute. When I grow up I hope I have a beautiful wedding like they are going to have. This is one of my favorite showsmoreless
