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.Written by

There's a significant time discrepancy in the movie. Nina becomes pregnant during the "escapade in the kitchen," but by the time she starts feeling ill/concerned, nearly eight weeks has passed - two weeks before the termites attack, four weeks to sell the house, then ten more days to move out, then one more day before visiting the doctors. This is over 7 and a half weeks (assuming it takes 0 days to fumigate and put the house up for sale). This is a fairly unrealistic amount of time for a mature woman to begin questioning things. Then, at the doctor's George says they haven't done any thing for six weeks - to which Nina asks, "what about that escapade in the kitchen?" They're both quite off in their timing. See more »

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.
