If you've ever been at a wedding, you'll know there's a table way down the back that's usually filled with people you had to invite.

It's either friends of the family - in the loosest sense of the word - or someone who was very important to the bride and groom a long, long time ago and were invited for the sake of formality. Of course, in our experience, that's usually the best table to be at because everyone's either been jilted in some way or have little or no stake in the wedding.

In other words, you're down the back getting progressively drunk and hating everyone around you. That's essentially the premise of Table 19, a new romantic comedy with Anna Kendrick, Craig Robinson, Stephen Merchant, June Squibb, Lisa Kudrow (remember her?) and Grand Budapest Hotel's Tony Revolori.

Kendrick's character previously dated the wedding's best man (Wyatt Russell) and was almost invited by accident, yet she decides to go nonetheless. At the table is the groom's first nanny and a collection of misfits who also were invited for tenuous reasons.

Take a look.

The thing is, while the idea sounds pretty stale and the trailer is cut to make it look like a Garry Marshall comedy or something, there has to be a good idea in there.

There's far too many decent names attached to this - Stephen Merchant, Craig Robinson, Lisa Kudrow, etc. - for it not to be terrible. That alone is what's keeping us interested here.
