It’s that time of year: Wedding season. A dreaded and beloved part of adult life. During a hectic summer that amounts to roughly one wedding per weekend, two jaded college buddies Ben and Alice (Jack Quaid and Maya Erskine) make a pact to survive the onslaught together. As they craft, deliver, and sit through cringe-inducing toast after toast to legions of newly married friends and family (including Ben’s dad, an enjoyable Ed Begley Jr.), they shuttle through singles tables in search of fellow lonelyhearts or at least temporary distractions.

Co-directors Jeff Chan and Andrew Rhymer have crafted a hilariously relatable alcohol and insecurity-laden world where sincere affection and real feelings nevertheless shine through. The sparkling chemistry and witty banter between Quaid and Erskine anchor their rollercoaster of a relationship as they move between desperation, elation, denial, and horniness. A fresh rom-com for anyone who has ever been banished to the singles table.
