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 the movie opened, aspiring country singer Brad Paisley went to see it in the hopes that an ex-girlfriend he'd seen the first "Father of the Bride" remake with would be there. She didn't show, but as he told an Atlanta radio station later, he sat in the theater watching the lead actress and thought to himself, "I could marry a girl like her." A few years later, he not only married a girl like her, he married that particular girl - actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley. See more »
During the scene where George shows Nina his new hair and they are sitting on the floor, the water from the rain is dripping from the ceiling, when in fact they are in a 2 story house, so any water would drip from the upstairs ceiling not the downstairs. See more »
I'm, 4-foot 6, I don't shave, I don't have a job, and I'm gonna be an uncle. Is there something weird about that?
Finally, someone who thinks like I do.
Oh, yeah, a 12 year old.

That is one of my favorite lines, followed by "and pack up your things and hit the road! And don't trample the daisies!" Or he says something like that.
Anyway. I went and saw this in theaters and amazingly enough, I really liked it. One of the best Steve Martin films next to Bowfinger and Planes, Trains and Automobiles. I enjoyed the acting, I enjoyed the story and everything else about this movie that made it great. It wasn't a comedy going from one zinger to the next but something well thought out and well written.
If your looking for a lite movie with some fun, I recommend seeing this movie.
