"Couple Fight 3: Weddings!" features real couples reenacting their real fights centered around love, weddings, marriage and friendship. Relate to the joys of relationships for better or for worse.
Although there have been two previous editions of Couple Fight, this was the first one we've seen. Wedding stress seems to be universal, but each couple has a different trigger point, causing meltdowns that were probably not amusing at the time. But with the benefit of hindsight, each brief scene takes a stressful situation and brings out the funny. Married or not, we've all had stupid fights, or at least known someone who's gone a little nuts over their nuptials. This fast-moving show packs a ton of laughs, and proves that "one day you'll laugh about this" can come true.
