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 ...

Our Family Wedding

The best thing about mixed minority weddings is you can rest assure the quality of dance at the reception will be superior to that of a predominantly Caucasian American affair. In addition to that white wedding stereotype, the African American and Mexican American families in this comedy also vocalize their objections–not bottle them up for later, in private– particularly the fathers.

For Lucia (America Ferrera) and Marcus (Lance Gross), getting engaged was the easy part. Now they must introduce each other to their respected families–both of which are different ethnicities. Choosing the engagement dinner to introduce the households, Lucia and Marcus are unpleasantly surprised to discover their fathers (Forest Whitaker, Carlos Mencia) are already familiar with each other due to a prior disagreement.

With both families forced to compromise their traditions in order to accommodate the other, the fathers participant in a game of one-upmanship, which later finds them in hot water with their significant others.

Slovenly assembled, this gross-out rom-com is too preoccupied with the warring patriarchs to bother with character development or comedy.

As for ethnic neutrality and dealing with objections during your interracial marriage ceremony: hire an albino priest and say your vows in Esperanto. (Red Light)
