You May Now Hug the Bride
So I find myself in the strange position of not being all that excited about a lesbian film. Not that there appears to be anything on its surface terribly wrong with “Jenny’s Wedding.” Just that it looks a little dour. But, again, maybe that’s just me. Maybe the recent jubilation about marriage equality has me not feeling like returning to a state of closeted disapproval. Like calling your girlfriend your “roommate” in 2015 feels so…quaint.
Plus, man, there are an awful lot of hugs between Katherine Heigl and Alexis Bledel in the trailer. Hot, passionate, about-to-vow-their-undying-love…hugs. Yeah. But, who am I kidding, I’ll see this eventually because I see basically all lesbian movies eventually. And I will say I am happy to see that Izzie Stevens and Rory Gilmore end up getting hitched.
