Trivia

George's middle name, Stanley, is named after Spencer Tracy's character in the original Father of the Bride (1950). See more »

Goofs

When George is in the jail cell talking to his wife, his chin is resting on the cell bars, but only in the shots when he is facing into camera. In the reverse shots (over his shoulder) he is clearly several inches away from the bars. See more »

Quotes

George: [seeing the gift from Bryan's parents] Yikes. A whole car.
Annie: Dad? Dad? Dad, did you see what the Mackenzie's got us?
George: It's unbelievable. And you thought you'd never have a new car.
Annie: I know.
[sees him hiding a gift from her]
Annie: What's that?
George: It's nothing. It's just a gift I was thinking of giving you guys. It's something you said you didn't have, but you wanted.
Annie: Can I see it?
George: [gives it to her] Yeah, you know, it's, it's not a big, big gift of course.
Annie: [she opens it] It's a cappuccino maker!

Excellent

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.
