movies on special events gone awry

An administrator here is giving a presentation, and has asked me for a list
of movies on special events gone awry. An obvious example would be "Father
of the Bride". I immediately thought of the John Sayles-penned "Aligator",
where the titular character attacks an outdoor wedding and destroys the
wedding cake and eats a few members of the wedding party, but this is
probably not what my administrator has in mind. Can anyone think of some
main-stream movies of this kind?

Thanks for any input,
