Trivia

In the scene where George and Nina Banks are eliminating who will be invited to the wedding, among the names they mention are Steve and Stephanie Tyrell. Steve Tyrell did the several of the songs in this film and also in the sequel, Father of the Bride Part 2. See more »

Goofs

When George and Matty Banks are practicing walking down the aisle in their hallway, Matty asks, "Is it right-together-left, or left-together-right?" to which George replies, "Right-together, left-together..." George's last minute reminder, and Matty's "cheat," written on his hand the day of the wedding, "Left-together, right-together," is opposite of what George says in the earlier scene. See more »

Quotes

George: This was the moment I'd been dreading for the past six months. Well, actually for the past 22 years.

I laughed my ass off both times that I saw this movie. That should tell you all you need to know about this movie. Steve Martin is terrific, as usual. I highly recommend it.
