Our Family Wedding (2010)



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

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.

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

Alternately flat and overwrought.

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.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

Alternately rancid and ridiculous, strident and sickly sweet, Our Family Wedding offers plenty that's old, borrowed and blue; it's the something new that's missing.

New York Times
Top Critic

[A] slick, slapsticky, forgettable comedy, a cool-jazz riff on upper-middle-class American families sorting through misconceptions.

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."
