Netflix's 'Love Wedding Repeat' Flopped On Rotten Tomatoes But Fans Are Fighting Back
Looking for something to watch this weekend? Netflix has yet again added new content to its ever-expanding library. One film in particular that people can't stop talking about is Love Wedding Repeat.
The romantic comedy was added to the streaming service on Friday, April 10. It takes place during a wedding where Jack, the brother of the bride, finds himself living the same day over and over again in a twisted turn of fate.
As the day keeps replaying, Jack finds himself in all kinds of unusual scenarios, including with an angry ex-girlfriend, a former flame who he never really got over, and an uninvited guest who's sure to stir up trouble.
When the trailer was released earlier this month, many people compared Love Wedding Repeat to the 2007 comedy, Death at a Funeral. The consensus seemed to be that the new Netflix original would be a funny, light-hearted watch for users to enjoy.
Unfortunately, critics seem to feel the opposite about the Olivia Munn and Sam Claflin lead film. It's currently sitting with a score of just 28% on Rotten Tomatoes, with an audience score of 40%.
The IMDb score is looking a bit better at 5.8/10, although it's still considerably lower than some of Netflix's other projects.

"Omg do yourself a favor and watch Love Wedding Repeat on @netflix I laughed, I cried. It was soooooo good," one person tweeted.
