Father of the Bride
Love is wonderful. Until it happens to your only daughter.
George Banks is an ordinary, middle-class man whose 21 year-old daughter Annie has decided to marry a man from an upper-class family, but George can't think of what life would be like without his daughter. He becomes slightly insane, but his wife tries to make him happy for Annie, but when the wedding takes place at their home and a foreign wedding planner takes over the ceremony.
God I love this film. 22 years old and it still holds up after multiple rewatches. I don't remember when I first saw this, but ever since then it (and its sequel) has been one of my all-time favorites. I don't know what about it hooked me back then but it still holds true today.
Steve Martin is atop my list of funniest people out there. While I am not a fan of The Jerk and haven't seen all of his filmography, he still is a favorite of mine. There are few that I find funnier than Mr. Martin, and he is close to his best here.
Martin Short is the other stand out in this film for me. I…
Comedies these days could learn a thing or two from Father of the Bride. It is funny without making a joke out of the characters, it has very little conflict, choosing to just go with the idea that puting on a wedding is conflict enough to base a movie around, and it is actually a charming experience.
Without a doubt my favorite wedding film of all time.
Steve Martin is fantastic at playing the role of father, so much so that I'm stunned he doesn't have any children of his own.
Watching this through nostalgia-tinted glasses is a wonderful experience and one that could beat a cold and clinical objective viewing any time.
I unabashedly try to hold on to sentimentality and value earnestness and uncynical ideals. Therefore I am a strong believer that nostalgia is not necessarily a bad thing when watching films.
A film, any film, from the highest 'art' films to the basest low-brow comedies, uses symbols to try and elicit a response from the audience. There are the signals and the signified, for instance in the poster for Kubrick's Lolita Sue Lyon is sucking on a lollipop. But she's not really, is she? The lollipop is the signal that signifies something metaphoric.
Similarly (and maybe this is…
An enjoyable yet average comedy.
Lifted from the sickly sweet, shitty bottom of the barrel by the wonderful Steve Martin and an outstanding Martin Short.
"I vill go talk to Honk. Now, we don't want to lose him, Hiss a genius and we need his maaaaand!"
Nothing too crazy here. A simple and charming family movie with a fair amount of laughs from one of comedy's finest actors.
Drive carefully. And don't forget to fasten your condom.
When I was little, I wanted a wedding like Annie's! Minus the father of the bride's monkeying and mishaps.
Its creepy cuz Steve Martin is just a regular dude
Nice fun movie to watch with Shel:) even though it was cringeworthy
I know this is going to sound weird but I actually enjoyed the sequel more. It's not bad but really forgettable.
My review -- this film project is now on DVD and yes it does have a stable profit margin of roughly $69 million. The plot in a nutshell is as follows, the viewers meet this father whom is just settling down after a busy life-changing event where his oldest daughter has just got married and he tells us face-to-face or throughout this film in inner monologue how this momentous occasion came to be and what happened before, during and after the event. Now I have to be honest it is one of those kinds of films you'll either like it or hate it there is nothing in the middle with this title and sadly I am one of those kinds…
A man struggles to buy the kind of hot dog buns he wants. Watch how the hot dog bun related crimes turn this normal man into a monster. Falling deeper into a endless pit on greed and lust that are all started by that one crime
Funny movie about a wedding.
Continuing my streak of 90’s marital fare.
I'm perplexed by Steve Martin’s constant panic mode in ‘Father of the Bride’ – people really ate this up in 1991. Maybe his repetitive choices came from the script, but his befuddled dad routine wears reaaaaal thin.
There's nothing special or extraordinary about this film, but it is a good film. Steve Martin is not that bad and I can say the same for Diane Keaton. The story is also heart-warming.
