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
The set used for the interior of the Banks' home had to be rebuilt from scratch for the sequel. With no presumption of a sequel during production of the original movie, the set was destroyed after production completed. Set crew had to recreate the entirety of the set based only on a few remnant sketches of the original set, and had to infer most measurements based on the known sizes of various reference items in the original film.

There's a significant time discrepancy in the movie. Nina becomes pregnant during the "escapade in the kitchen," but by the time she starts feeling ill/concerned, nearly eight weeks has passed - two weeks before the termites attack, four weeks to sell the house, then ten more days to move out, then one more day before visiting the doctors. This is over 7 and a half weeks (assuming it takes 0 days to fumigate and put the house up for sale). This is a fairly unrealistic amount of time for a mature woman to begin questioning things. Then, at the doctor's George says they haven't done any thing for six weeks - to which Nina asks, "what about that escapade in the kitchen?" They're both quite off in their timing. See more »
Now, going to the movies, that'll be economical: one child, two seniors, thanks.

as sequels go,this is film isn't too bad.i didn't think ti was quite as good as the first one,but it's not a bad effort.i didn't find it as funny,and some of Steve Martin's histrionics are old and seem forced a bit too me.really,this one doesn't quite have the same sincerity as the first.through much of this movie,i was all too aware i was watching a movie,whereas with firs tone,i was drawn in,and less aware i was watching a movie with people acting.having said that,there are some bright spots.for,one,this movie is just as touching as the first.and Eugene levy has a great cameo.and there is still some fun to be had.even though this may seem too high a rating after much of what i said above,i still think Father of the Bride II is a 7/10
