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.

Very funny comedy about family
5 October 2010 | by wcamp64See all my reviews

I am so shocked at the polarizing views on this movie. The ridiculous high standards placed on this simple film about its plot and purpose. This is no documentary. It is a very funny comedy about two families. Clearly, their is a significant amount of intellectual elitism that exists over race in this country. From the amateur comments to the professional critics, the focus on racial elements of this film are misguided and unwelcome. It is a comedy about two families that happen to be Black and Latino. A 3 star rating is absurd compared to the volumes of exploitative ethnic action and comedy flicks of complete nonsense, and worn out plots that receive twice the rating. Clearly, this films subject matter prevents far too many from enjoying a simple comedy by feeling like they must dissect this inter-racial plot into being something it is not. Lighten up! Can we all just get along??
