    As I said in my review the similaties between this and the UK Show 'Worst Week of my Life' are amazing.


    Similarities:

    The wedding obviously

    Her parents don't like him

    He is always trying to impress her parents and fails.

    The sister is single and a bit of a loose cannon.

    The wedding is heavily planned.

    Best man sleeps with sister

    She has wealthy parents and he isn't.

    Weird ex-boyfriend is invited the wedding.

    Her parents are snobs.



    And this is just from the first episode!

    Honestly this is just like worst week and if it doesn't have the same writers or isn't based on it I'd be amazed.

    Also 'Worst Week of My Life' was made concieved before 'Meet the Parents/Fockers.

    This is just a blatant rip-off

    Actually, all the "similarities are the basic of any comedy about wedding, parents and their girl boyfriend and the other are classic of TV.

    Never hard to find similarities when you try to compare any tv show with another one.

    Watching it just now, I felt it had a more than passing resemblance to Arrested Development. The story seemed original enough to me (keep in mind I've never seen the show you are talking about since I'm in the US)... but the characters, acting, and dialog all seemed familiar.

    Of course it wasn't nearly as clever...

    I still want to see Worst Week of my Life too. Sarah Alexander was great in Coupling and she was the main reason I wanted to see Worst Week... but if it is like Big Day as well then that is good because the way this show is going means I will probably like that just as well.

    This the US version of WWOML isn't it? It's been touted for years and fox passed after the pilot.

    The last I heard CBS were making the US version. Isn't this aired by CBS?
