'Sing Now or Forever Hold Your Peace'
This uneven romantic comedy is firmly in the Zach Braffian mold: It features a group of thirtysomething men who are so terrified of growing up that they behave semi-moronically for the majority of the film, until they're chastened by the love of a good woman (or, in this case, several good women). What makes Sing Now less tolerable than your average rom-com is that it's chock-full of John Mayer and Coldplay renditions a cappella renditionsas college singing buddies gather 15 years after graduation for a Hamptons wedding weekend. It's too bad the script and the Phil Collins don't hold up to the talent, which includes stage actor David Harbourcurrently appearing in The Coast of Utopiaand Molly Shannon, terribly misused as an overbearing wife.
