Movie weddings are … something else. Most of them are magical, but quite a few of them are tragic, disastrous, or hilarious. The thing is, a number of wedding movies aren't just about the wedding. They're about something else entirely. In the real world, I think real weddings are like that, as well. I mean, yes, it's all about you and your partner, your soon-to-be spouse, but there are always other issues popping up during the lead-up to a wedding. These movies focus on weddings, but they're about so much more than that.
1. Mamma Mia!
This is about SO much more than a wedding – at least, it's about more than the wedding you expect. More than anything – to me, anyway – this is about the mother-daughter relationship between Donna and Sophie, as well as female friendship, youth, sex, and love.
