About the Movie

Steve Martin turns in a heartwarming and hilarious performance as George Banks, a befuddled father who has a hard time letting go of his young daughter when she unexpectedly announces her plans to wed. Diane Keaton shines as George’s patient, levelheaded wife, while funnyman Martin Short lights up the screen as the off-the-wall wedding consultant. Father Of The Bride vows to deliver fun for the entire family!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The material has been successfully refurbished with new jokes and new attitudes, but the earlier film's most memorable moments have been preserved. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, May 23, 2011

Fresh: This feel-good finale might feel even better, though, if it had any true connection to the pat, amiable, and rather dawdling farce that preceded it. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, May 23, 2011

Rotten: Neither the '90s nor the husband-wife team of Nancy Meyers and Charles Shyer (they wrote the new version, she co-produced, he directed) can match the original film's grace or wit. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, May 23, 2011

Fresh: Best stuff here comes strsight from Martin, such as his frenzied antics in the in-laws' house or his ridiculous Tom Jones imitation in front of a mirror in a too-tight tuxedo. – Variety Staff, Variety, May 23, 2011
