Movie Info

Lucia and Marcus learn the hard way that the path to saying "I do" can be rife with familial strife. When they return from college and suddenly announce their marriage plans, they discover that their competitive and egotistical fathers can wreak serious havoc on their special day. With insults flying and tempers running high, it's anyone's guess if the alpha dads will survive to make it down the aisle. Lucia's mother is planning "her" dream wedding and the only levelheaded one in the bunch is Angela, the groom's father's best friend and lawyer. With only weeks to plan their wedding, Lucia and Marcus soon discover the true meaning of love and find there is truth to the saying - that when you marry someone, you marry their entire family.

  • This inexplicable Hollywood movie contains a shocking collection of racial stereotypes...

  • A goat eats Forest Whitaker's Viagra. Do you really want me to tell you what happens?

    Jun 24, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • When a biracial couple (America Ferrera and Lance Gross) tell their families about their engagement, everything goes awry in this formulaic flick. One particular low point: A goat at the wedding reception swallows Viagra and runs amok. Ha ha ha!

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

    Mar 15, 2010
  • Alternately flat and overwrought.

    Mar 15, 2010
  • To anyone who has ever sparked up a TV set, let alone entered a movie theatre, all this is perfectly evident in the first five minutes.

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

    Lucia (America Ferarra) and Marcus (Lance Gross), are a perfectly nice and seemingly happy engaged couple until they have to introduce each other to their respected families-both of which are of different ethnicities. Choosing the engagement dinner to introduce the households, Lucia and Marcus are unpleasantly surprised to discover their fathers (Forest Whitaker and Carlos Mencia) are already familiar with each other due to a prior disagreement. With both families forced to compromise their traditions in order to accommodate the other, the fathers' participate in a game of one-upmanship, fire racial insults at one another forbidding the marriage and Lucia and Marcus learn the hard way that the path to saying "I do" can be rife with familial strife.

    Hysterically delightful with an overload of laughs. A must see especially for those about to get married or for those who are already married. See this...it may be a trip for you down memory lane...or for those who are about t take that trip...what to expect...BEFORE you say "I do!" At first I wasn't interested...but for the heck of it I did...and I wasn't disappointed at all. See this!

    A cute, funny modern day spin on "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" but not as good. It was predictable but still feel-good and light-hearted. The best line is when when four black men are sitting at a street cafe joking around with each other. One of them is singing obnoxiously and his friend says, 'Stop it, you're scaring the white people."
