Come enjoy “It Shoulda Been You,” rated PG13. You will see a wedding day you'll never forget, where anything that can go wrong does, and love pops up in mysterious places. The bride is Jewish.

And when the bride’s ex-boyfriend shows up, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle “Here Comes the Bride." Plots are hatched, pacts are made, secrets exposed – and the sister of the bride is left to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after.
