Our Family Wedding (2010)



Critic Consensus: Our Family Wedding is a mirthless, contrived affair that does little with its promising premise and talented cast.

I didn't buy a word of this thing and I didn't laugh enough.

Alternately flat and overwrought.

It may be clichéd and unoriginal, but it accomplished something that most other movies in the genre failed to do: It made me, and a theater full of people, laugh quite a bit.

Too many scenes are forced and seem out of place.

Good intentions and a good cast do not necessarily a good film make.

Full Review… | April 8, 2012

Except for Mencia, who should never be allowed near a camera again, Our Family Wedding isn't particularly awful, but that's about the best that can be said about it.

Audience Reviews for Our Family Wedding

In a word..lame.

Yes, it was funny. But, it was a bit too much as well. Very predictable and corny at times.

Cast: Forest Whitaker, Carlos Mencia, America Ferrera, Lance Gross, Regina King, Mimi Michaels, Hayley Marie Norman, Anna Maria Horsford, Natalina Maggio, Lupe Ontiveros

Director: Rick Famuyiwa

Summary: Forest Whitaker and funnyman Carlos Mencia butt heads as two domineering dads forced to set aside their culture-clash differences and team up to plan their children's wedding, with only two weeks until the big day arrives. America Ferrera plays the pregnant bride-to-be opposite Lance Gross as her medical resident fiancé in this wacky comedy.

My Thoughts: "There where only two funny things in this movie and that was Anjelah Johnson and the goat. The rest just felt like I had already seen it. Which is where the movie 'Guess Who' came into mind. The same concept, just not as funny. I am surprised at how bad it was considering some of the cast that is in the film. But it really was just a waste of a rental."
