My Big Fat Balkan Wedding

To say yes to each other, they've got to say no to their mothers

Lisa and Hrvoje have fallen head over heels in love. Hrvoje proposes, Lisa accepts, and everything looks just fine. Except that Hrvoje's mother wants them to get married in Croatia. She wants a traditional Croatian wedding, with family, family, and more family. And that includes Lisa's parents as well. Problem is, Theresa and Gerd split up over 20 years ago, when Theresa abandoned them after she found out that Gerd was cheating on her. While she still hasn't forgiven him, Lisa hasn't forgiven her for having never shown any interest in her. Theresa surprisingly agrees to go to Croatia, since she wants to prevent her daughter from marrying the wrong man who, in her view, is Hrvoje. So while Theresa forms an uneasy alliance with Gerd to face down the “enemy,” Hrvoje's mother Darinka intends to crush her foe, Theresa, with the most spectacular Croatian wedding ever. Despite hurtling from one catastrophe to the next, Lisa and Hrvoje miraculously make it to the altar. But Theresa still has a joker up her sleeve...
