THE BIG WEDDING is a romantic comedy about a divorced couple who are forced to pretend they are still married in the run up to their son's wedding day.

Language

There are multiple uses of strong language ('f**k') and one use of very strong language ('c**t'). There is also some milder bad language, including uses of 'crap', 'piss' and 'shit'.

Sex

There are a number of strong visual and verbal sex references. In one scene, after a couple joke about the word 'cunnilingus' being offensive, the man puts his female partner on the kitchen counter and removes her underwear. In another scene, a woman's hand is seen moving under a napkin over a man's lap, suggesting masturbation. Elsewhere in the film there are audible moans and groans as sex occurs offscreen, as well as verbal references to orgasms and 'cock blocking'.

The film also includes some female breast and buttock nudity as a woman strips off for a swim in a lake.

One character deliberately irritates another character, who is presented as intolerant, by telling her that a place is "crawling with spics and Jews". The intolerance of the woman is ridiculed throughout the film and there is no endorsement of discriminatory attitudes.
