Like a trained monkey, Martin Short is trotted back out for more of his mincing shtick. But perhaps the most unattractive quality of both films is the ugly obsession with material excess.

The strengths of these films are not so much laughs as sincerity and heart. [Blu-ray]

A sequel to a lousy remake? How droll.

A follow up as emotional as the original

More of a sequel for sequel's sake than a justified continuation of the story.

An exuberant sequel to complete a near-perfect translation of the 1950s era comedies to the 1990s.

Father of the Bride Part II is not a great movie and not even as good as its 1991 inspiration (not to mention the Spencer Tracy-Elizabeth Taylor original from 1950). But it is warm and fuzzy, and has some good laughs and a lot of sweetness.

Martin, Keaton and cinematographer William A. Fraker put this retro fluff over better than expected early on, but hour 2 is only for those who don't want their equilibriums rattled by surprises.
