4.0 out of 5 stars Family fun and frivolity, 9 Sep 2013
This review is from: Father of the Bride Part II [DVD] [1996] (DVD)
We enjoyed Father of the Bride, so this was a welcome sequel. Steve Martin plays the slightly hapless George Banks and Diane Keaton is brilliant as his long-suffering wife Nina. In this story, their married daughter Annie makes an announcement which is no surprise to anyone other than George... and then Nina finds herself feeling unwell. Meanwhile George manages to sell the family home to a wealthy Arab, only to learn that it's going to be knocked down rather than lived in...

Humour that verges on slapstick at times is interspersed with some quite poignant moments, and a tense climax, with a bitter-sweet ending which we, as empty nesters, could relate to all too strongly.

Theoretically the film stands alone, but it works much better seen as a satisfying sequel to the original `Father of the Bride'. Recommended for a bit of light relaxation.
