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.
| Original Score: 5/10
A tedious and unnecessary rehash of many better films, this serves only to cast further doubt on the credentials of Oscar winner Forest Whitaker and the big screen career of America Ferrera.
| Original Score: 2/5
A broad and formulaic culture-clash comedy built on fill-in-the-blank wedding comedy clichés.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
| Original Score: 1/4
Blacks and Latinos finally star together in a major movie as wretched as anything whites have done
| Original Score: F
You almost miss the laugh track. Difficult problems are sidestepped, arguments are overacted, and there are three food fights involving wedding cakes.
| Original Score: 2/4
As wilted as last weekend's bridesmaid bouquet, "Our Family Wedding" manages to be offensive to African-Americans, Latinos, women, men, and sentient life forms of any kind.
| Original Score: D
I didn't buy a word of this thing and I didn't laugh enough.
The interracial meet-the-parents setup pioneered in 1967 by Stanley Kramer's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner gets a modest comic update in Rick Famuyiwa's Our Family Wedding.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
An unconvincingly broad culture-clash comedy whose Latino and African-American ensemble might've made for a progressive film if director and co-writer Rick Famuyiwa hadn't pandered to the lowest common denominator.
Despite being as predictable and derivative as a wedding singer's playlist, there's just enough sweetness, and just enough smiles, to keep it from falling flat.
They're all generally nice people, so there's no reason why they wouldn't get along, except for reasons forced.
Misguided and embarrassing for all those involved; could have easily been a segment in the atrocious Valentine's Day
| Original Score: 4/10
Lance's family are black. America's family are Mexican. And hilarity ensues! Supposedly.
Instead of invitations, they should be sending out apologies for Our Family Wedding, a cake-and-kisses comedy that has disaster written all over it and not for the right reasons.
| Original Score: 1/5
Fathers know foolishness best in this culture-clash family comedy, which presides over a cursed union of slushy sentimentality and dim-witted humor.
I just saved you a lot of aggravation. You owe me.
| Original Score: .5/4
These are all supposed to be believable characters, but none of them are.
| Original Score: D+
