I will identify two movies that IMHO suck for the same reason: Melancholia and Rachel Getting Married. I don't mind that these movies have weddings in them, or even that the weddings are central to the staging or plot. What irks me is when these weddings feature families and friends that are both ridiculously wealthy and obliviously unlikeable people. 10 minutes into Melancholia and I was ready for the planet to be destroyed because not one of the dozens of well-dressed folks had connected with me enough to want them to live on.

Damn. I normally look forward to Kirsten Dunst, even when she has a mean conniving role like Mona Lisa Smile.

Oh and to any Hollywood folks out there reading: for the love of God please do not start your movie with an entire 5-minute song and no other dialogue to "set the mood". It doesn't set any mood but "when will the movie start already?" I'm looking at Melancholia still but also Midnight in Paris.
