Father of the Bride - REVIEW

Film of the Day #102/ 300

Father of the Bride is a romantic, heart-warming and enchanting comedy about a father struggling to come to terms with his daughter growing up. The film cleverly mines nostalgia and parental love in an emotional climax; however the film belongs to Steve Martin, whose crisp, almost bitter delivery gives the film its edge. After learning that his daughter is getting married, neurotic, stressed out father, George Banks sets out to make her the happiest bride at the most lavish wedding. Father of the Bride is an original remake that is equal in sentiment and humour. An underrated nineties gem, Father of the Bride is hysterical, dramatic and a great feel-good-movie for all.
