The Big Wedding hits theaters today, and the film is going to be huge. Amanda Seyfriend, Katherine Heigl, Topher Grace, Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro and more major stars are in it, which is part of the reason we're excited. But we can't help but think that weddings—in TV and movies—are pretty much always so unrealistic. You too?

OK! News: Why Hasn't the 50 Shades of Grey Movie Happened Yet?

Wedding Crashers. Basically all wedding scenes in this film would never happen in real life, but this speech at the end is just too much. How did the bride and groom not care that these two bozos were stealing their thunder? Oy.

It Takes Two. All the best movie wedding scenes involve someone else trying to stop the marriage from happening, but would that really happen in real life like it did in this movie? No. No it would not.

Bride Wars. The entire premise of this film, starring Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson, is about two best friends who end up having their dream weddings on the same date at the same place because neither one of them would cave and let the other one have it. I mean...

Boy Meets World. Here, Shawn and Cory fight during his wedding to Topanga. Like, literally during the ceremony. Get a room, guys.

Sex and the City: In the SATC movie, Big and Carrie are all set to get hitched at the New York Public Library. That is until he calls her and tells her that he can't go through with it because he wanted it to be low key and just the two of them. But of course, Carrie didn't get the message because Charlotte's daughter had Carrie's phone all day. Realistic.

Girls: The most unrealistic thing about Jessa's wedding was everything. These two were so terrible together and it should have never even happened. BTW, there's curses in this video. NSFW.

Sex and the city

Bridesmaids: So many things were unrealistic about this bridal planning in general, but at the actual wedding? The bride's favorite band, Wilson Phillips peformed. Unless you're like, Beyonce, this just doesn't happen.

Friends: There were lots of weddings on Friends (half of which were Ross'), but everything about Chandler's and Monica's was not very likely. Sure, grooms run away all the time, but not very often does the person who marries you show up late and in a Civil War costume. Just sayin'. 

Sweet Home Alabama: Just as Reese Witherspoon's character is about to get married, she finds out she's still married—to her ex husband. So she signs the papers, wedding dress and all, right in the middle of her ceremony. Classy.

The Office: The worst boss ever turns into the worst wedding attendant ever at Phyllis' wedding. Just watch and cringe:
