Storyline

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.

Trivia

Although this sequel to Father of the Bride (1991) is not a remake of Father's Little Dividend (1951), (the sequel to the original Father of the Bride (1950)), the opening scenes of the two films, including the narration spoken to camera by the father character, are virtually identical. See more »

Goofs

Mr. Habib pays George Banks $15,000 using $1000 bills. The US government had begun taking large denomination bills out of circulation in 1969, so the bills would technically had been part of a private collection and would have been worth far more than their face value. See more »

A so so sequel
14 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Father of the bride' was a good film and probably didn't need a sequel. But this is Hollywood, everything needs a sequel.

While it is clear that a lot of effort has gone into making this sequel work, the central idea stretches credibility and every idea the writer had seems to have been thrown at the wall in a desperate attempt to get laughs.

There are moments that remind you of the heart and humour that the preceding film had, but it's a load of nothing really.

I went into this film dubious about how good it could be, and I didn't finish watching it any more convinced that the original needed a sequel.
