Father of the Bride

Father of the Bride

About

Once you get over the disappointment that Martin has abandoned the wonderfully zany comedies that made him famous (and, let's face it, it's about time to leave the grief behind) Father of the Bride comes across as a charming, if pointless remake of the Spencer Tracy classic. Martin is the father who can't bear to see his daughter growing up, especially considering that the huge wedding she is planning may well wipe him out financially.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Martin Short, Kieran Culkin, Steve Martin, Kimberly Williams, Diane Keaton, George Newbern
  • Director: Charles Shyer
  • Writer: Nancy Meyers, Albert Hackett, Charles Shyer, Frances Goodrich
  • Producer: Howard Rosenman, Carol Baum, Nancy Meyers
  • Photographer: John Lindley

In a nutshell

Keaton is surprisingly motherly as his wife, and Short steals the film as the man in charge of the wedding arrangements, who is ever so slightly homosexual.
