did not like it

DNF. About the point where the Father of the Bride, who fantasizes actively about his daughter's friend Agatha, goes from fantasy to physical in the laundry room with said Agatha while there's a party going on outside, where his WIFE also is, on the eve of his daughter's wedding, I became rather revolted and went no further. Social satire/commentary? Really? Well, if the commentary is how shallow this family and their friends are, ok, I guess. Mission accomplished. The characters came across as one-dimensional and shallow, and Winn, the Father of the Bride, tiresome and disgusting for the lusting. Again, life's too short for blech books.
