Storyline

"Our marriage, their wedding." It's lesson number one for any newly engaged couple, and Lucia and Marcus are no exception. In Our Family Wedding, they learn the hard way that the path to saying "I do" can be rife with familial strife. When they return from college and too suddenly announce their marriage plans, they soon discover that their fathers - two highly competitive over-the-top egos - can wreak a major amount of havoc on their special day. With insults flying and tempers running high, it's anyone's guess if the alpha dads will survive to make it down the aisle in one piece. Lucia's mother is busy planning the wedding of "her" dreams and the only levelheaded one in the bunch is Angela, the groom's father's best friend and lawyer, who manages to keep her cool when the madness reaches a crescendo. With only weeks to plan their wedding, Lucia and Marcus soon discover the true meaning of love and find there is truth to the saying - that when you marry someone, you marry their ...

weak jokes and Whitaker doesn't have the comedic skills
20 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Marcus Boyd (Lance Gross) and Lucia Ramirez (America Ferrera) are going home to announce their engagement to marry. Marcus' father Brad (Forest Whitaker) is a divorced radio personality. He keeps dating young girls. Her father Miguel (Carlos Mencia) doesn't even know that she has a boyfriend. The couple is moving to Laos where he's joining Doctors without Borders. They announce their wedding in front of both families during dinner but Miguel just tow Brad's car. To make things more awkward, Brad brings a date Ashley who actually played soft ball with Lucia. The fathers do not get along. Lucia's racist grandmother doesn't help. It's a clash of cultures as the fathers compete.

The biggest problem is Forest Whitaker. He is way too serious to be any good in a comedy. The man is obvious into his rom-coms having directed mostly that. He just doesn't fit that world. Carlos Mencia is a lot better fit. The racial humor could work but it needs to be much sharper. The jokes are mostly from the bottom of the barrel. They're not the best. If they're going there, they should take some risks. Some of the characters are funny. America is likable. The grandma hits some funny moments but the story has limited substance.
