SYNOPSIS: Planning a wedding can be hell, but planning to ruin a wedding can be a hell of a lot of fun! Anthony insists on a big, traditional Italian wedding, but his overbearing mamma has a few stipulations of her own. Add to the mix bickering relatives, a crazed wedding coordinator, and a jealous
ex-boyfriend who wants nothing more than to ruin the whole thing, and you’ve got one hell of a party!
