Currently TOP 1 on Netflix for a few days, this new romantic comedy is clearly not to everyone’s taste.

The romantic comedy of the moment on Netflix

We now know that being TOP 1 on the Netflix platform has never been a guarantee of quality. This is once again proven by the first place of the week, occupied by a new American romantic comedy called Mother of the Bride. The film sits proudly in the French rankings ahead of the films Bac Nord, Un Sac de Billes, the thriller Intraçable and the excellent horror film Barbare. He even occupies the podium in no less than 70 countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Brazil. Mother of the Bride is still by Mark Waters, recognized as a master of teen comedy after the entertaining Lolita Despite Me, Lindsay Lohan’s biggest success to date. He is also the one who wrote Freaky Friday, What If It Were True… and The Spiderwick Chronicles?. But despite a lasting reputation and untouchable popularity, the filmmaker’s latest film is nevertheless far from seducing the crowds.

The synopsis is as follows: “Emma, ​​Lana’s daughter, returns from abroad and drops a bomb: she is getting married in Thailand and in a month! Lana learns that the man who won Emma’s heart is the son of the man who broke hers years ago.”we can read directly on the film’s Allociné sheet.

To carry this story, we find the iconic Brooke Shields in the role of Lana, star actress in The Blue Lagoon, a 1980s romance also available on the Netflix platform. She plays opposite Benjamin Bratt, already seen in The Princes of the City, Infiltrator and Poker Face. Also starring are Chad Michael Murray, Miranda Cosgrove, Rachael Harris and Sean Teale. It’s up to you if you want to give him a chance…
