“Brilliantly constructed, compulsively watchable.”– Ann Hornaday, WASHINGTON POST
“One of the most complete and honest views of marriage that any movie has ever put forth.”– Jess Rogers, CINEMA AXIS
“The film is hilarious – the sort of black romantic comedy about unavoidable heartache, ruined opportunities and shattered expectations that leaves you joyfully skipping out of the cinema.”– Sophia Satchell-Baeza, VICE MAGAZINE/ GROLSCH FILM WORKS

For the past twenty years, Doug Block has supported his documentary filmmaking career with a side business of videotaping weddings. Now, as he approaches his own 25th wedding anniversary, Block uses the big event to take a broad and fascinating look at marriage.  He revisits some of his favorite wedding couples over the years, as well as experts and “advisors”, to explore what holds some marriages together and what drives others apart.

“Simple in execution, but unmistakably rich in dialogue of the complexities of married life, Doug Block has lensed a wonderfully playful, startlingly tragic film that will surely move anyone who’s ever been in love and question anyone considering marriage themselves.”– Jordan M. Smith, ION CINEMA
 “112 Weddings is such a good idea for a documentary that I’m stunned it hasn’t been done many, many times before.”– Matt Zoller Seitz, VULTURE
 “You have to hand it to Doug Block. With 112 Weddings he has completed one of the loosest yet most compelling doc trilogies in recent memory.”– Marc Glassman, POV MAGAZINE
