Goofs

When Annie and Bryan go to change for their honeymoon, George takes a shortcut. The time it would take for them to change would be significantly longer than the time it takes George to get to the stairs via his "shortcut," though he still manages to miss their exit. See more »

Miss these movies
30 September 2018 | by JosiReviewsSee all my reviews

Why can't they bring back this genre of movies? Simple, every day life without super drama. Watching a dad have a meltdown over his daughter's wedding is realistic and Steve Martin's character is so relatable. The super market moment with the hot dog buns is hilarious and so dead on. Nowadays it feels like writers/producers have no idea what is happening in the real world. I have watched countless movies where the characters drive new cars and $500k+ houses and are portrayed as the struggling, all-American family lol even though this family has a stunning house, they still come across grounded and humble.
