Comedy doesn’t get any broader than Javier Ruiz Caldera’s “Three Many Weddings,” an insufferably cartoonish, blatantly derivative affair best suited to drunken bachelorette parties and stag nights. Inma Cuesta plays a lobster scientist (?) with relationship problems who has to attend three weddings of three ex-boyfriends. Anyone believing they’ve suffered through endless marriage receptions need only attend “Three More Weddings” and they’ll think they got off easy. It’s definitely not a festival film, though Spanish-lingo territories will undoubtedly see sky-high returns at the multiplexes following an early December Iberian release.
Ruth (Cuesta) is dumped publicly at a friend’s nuptials by b.f. Pedro (Berto Romero), who complains she’s too compliant. At the lab where she’s researching cell generation in lobsters, she’s assigned new intern Dani (Martin Rivas), whom Ruth asks to escort her to the surfer wedding of her very dude-ish ex, Mikel (Paco Leon). There she falls for plastic surgeon Jonas (Quim Gutierrez), but at the wedding of her now-transgender ex, Alex (Laura Sanchez), Ruth learns Jonas hasn’t been forthcoming. “Weddings” makes “American Pie” seem prim and realistic, but could generate international remakes. The soundtrack may produce additional sales.
