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
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 »
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 »

In the sequel to the brilliant Father Of The Bride, Nina Banks and her daughter Annie are both pregnant and George Banks, being his usual nervous self has to learn to get used to the idea that he's going to be a father again AND a grandfather.
The whole cast including, Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Kimberly Williams and Martin Short are all back here giving good performances.
Even though Father Of The Bride Part II is not as good as the first Father Of The Bride, this is still a great movie which is enjoyable and fun all the way through and that's why I'm going to give this good sequel a 10/10.
