Storyline

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.

Trivia

In the theatrical trailer, a scene which is not included in the DVD is shown with Franck telling George and Brian that there will be "sterks" (storks) at the baby shower. During the Scrabble scene, you can see "sterks" on the board, along with the other pregnancy-related words. See more »

Goofs

It is incorrectly regarded as a goof that Nina and George's baby could not be big and plump because she delivered approximately 4 weeks early. Not all premature babies are small, and it is possible to have a pre-term newborn that weighs 8lbs or more, especially since women over the age of 35 (like Nina) are more likely to have babies that are larger than average.

A Well-Done Sequel!
19 March 2014 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

A sequel to immensely likable Father of the Bride, 'Father of the Bride Part II' is A Well-Done Sequel! Its enjoyable as well as emotional!

'Father of the Bride Part II' Synopsis: 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.

'Father of the Bride Part II' is worthy sequel of a wonderful prequel. The characters still appeal, the humor works & the emotional moments are heartfelt as well. Nancy Meyers & Charles Shyer's Screenplay is genuinely well-done. Charles Shyer's Direction, on the other-hand, is good. Cinematography & Editing are fair.

Performance-Wise: Steve Martin is lovable. He reprises his part of a loving/possessive dad commendably. Diane Keaton is flawless, yet again. Kimberly Williams-Paisley is cute. George Newbern is sincere. Kieran Culkin is adequate. Martin Short entertains.

On the whole, 'Father of the Bride Part II' is a satisfying sequel.
