In this sequel to "Father of the Bride", George Banks must accept the reality of what his daughter's ascension from daughter to wife, and now, to mother means when placed into perspective against his own stage of life. As the comfortable family unit starts to unravel in his mind, a rapid progression into mid-life crisis is in his future. His journey to regain his youth acts as a catalyst for a kind of "rebirth" of his attitude on life when he and his wife, Nina, find how their lives are about to change as well. Written by
When Diane Keaton was given the script for the movie, she nearly refused to film when she found out she had to pretend to be pregnant as she was nearly 50. It took a bag of humbugs and a lot of pleading from Steve Martin and Nancy Meyers to get her to join. See more »
Filming of the scene where George and Nina are in the car after she finds she is pregnant, took place in on Greenleaf Blvd, in Whittier. All the street scenes outside Nina's window on her side of the car are heading southbound. And All of George's passing scenery is heading northbound. See more »
We could sell this house in a second. It's the Leave It to Beaver house that everybody wants.

George Banks (Steve Martin) has to deal with becoming a grandpa after his daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams) announces that she's pregnant. He has a midlife crisis and put the house on sale. Mr. Habib (Eugene Levy) offers top dollars and a $15k bonus to move out in 10 days. Then the Banks family is shocked again when Nina (Diane Keaton) is also found to be pregnant. Habib is demolishing the house and George agrees to buy back the house for $100k more. Franck Eggelhoffer (Martin Short) is also back in this one for some reason.
The parts that I liked about the first movie are diminished. The family drama is no longer so cute or true. It's silly without the heart. They bring back Franck who I disliked and double down on it with Mr. Habib. The whole house sale is bad. When did Franck become a construction contractor? The only improvement is that they didn't try to confuse the public by naming it 'Father's Little Dividend'.
