Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average "Our Family Wedding" is a pleasant but inconsequential comedy, awkward for the actors, and contrived from beginning to end.

USA Today Full Review
Average Cultures don't just clash, they crash in Our Family Wedding.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 40 moviegoers:
We weren't able to collect a lot of reviews but, fortunately, nearly everyone enjoyed "Our Family Wedding" very much. There were lots of high and very high reviews in all age/gender groups, with virtually no low reviews. This is certainly a movie that I can recommend.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
"Our marriage, their wedding." It's lesson number one for any newly engaged couple, and Lucia (America Ferrera) and Marcus (Lance Gross) are no exception. They learn the hard way that the path to saying "I do" can be rife with familial strife. 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 (Forest Whitaker and Carlos Mencia) will survive to make it down the aisle in one piece. Lucia's mother (Diana Maria Riva) is busy planning the wedding of "her" dreams and the only levelheaded one in the bunch is Angela (Regina King), the groom's father's best friend and lawyer, who manages to keep her cool when the madness reaches a crescendo.

With only weeks to plan their wedding, Lucia and Marcus soon discover the true meaning of love and find there is truth to the saying - that when you marry someone, you marry their entire family.
