While a predictably clumsy Australian film with strong visuals and a wobbly script, it is sometimes more poignant than expected.

Sadly, for a film purporting to be a rom-com there are just too many awkward scenes, implausible romantic interludes and just not enough laughs...the story is pitted with inconsistencies and scenes that don't make emotional sense.

The first hour of Top End Wedding can be downright annoying in its simplicity and bad screenwriting.

Top End Wedding is uplifting, and offered me something I had not experienced before as a viewer in a mainstream theatre - the chance to see First Nations people, relationships, and culture presented from a position of strength and normality.

A sweet story about love in all its forms - for marriage, parenthood, heritage, and how far we're willing to go to discover ourselves.

With a lovely mix of laughter and tears - shifting from the former to the latter, and then back again, as the film progresses - Blair ... moves things along at a brisk clip.

Top End Wedding is sweet, with its two leads creating genuine smiles, surrounded by the beauty of Australia's top end.

The entire cast, no matter how minor the role, is delightful and delivers in a way the script consistently fails to do.

Wayne Blair's Top End Wedding is a conventional crowd-pleasing getting married comedy with some surprisingly profound insights about how easy it is to lose ties to your culture when it's not the dominant one.

It's a rare thing to see a film like Top End Wedding, a crowd-pleasing rom-com that transgresses social norms within a structure that defies any innovation.

In an Australian culture filled with cynical and combative politics, Top End Wedding feels radical - not because it seeks to break new ground, but because it finds joy in a shared homecoming.

It's a bit slight as a rom-com, but it's a wonderfully picturesque pastoral of people and places we rarely see on film.
