Meaningful and Funny.
6 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Guess whos coming to marry is one of the fresh prince episodes with a good message to it. It is both funny and meaningful.

Will and the rest of the family get ready to hold a wedding for Will's aunt Janice. To the surprise of the family they discover that Janice's husband to be, Frank, is white. This upsets Vy greatly and she refuses to let herself and Will go to the wedding.

This episode has great meaning I think. Seeing how everyone in this episode deals with the fact that Frank is white brings up an issue that is out there in real life.

Also I like how Will must deal with his mother, something that is hard for him to do. I can relate to how Will has a mother who is very hard headed and hard to get to change her mind.

Good episode. Recommended.
