Father of the Bride

Rating:PG
Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 1991
Running time:88 minutes
Cast:Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Martin Short, Kimberly Williams

Description: Steve Martin stars in this remake of the 1950 Vincente Minnelli classic as shoe executive George Banks, whose happily married existence hits a bump when he greets his daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams), home from a semester studying in Europe. She tells her father that she is engaged to be married. When the shocked George asks to whom, she says his name is Bryan (George Newbern) and that he is an independent communications consultant. George is even more shocked when he finds out what the wedding will cost (when George goes through the card file for invited wedding guests and is told someone is deceased, George chirps, He died? That's great!). As George is ignored during the mad preparations for the wedding, he wistfully looks back to all the good times he has had with Annie and sadly looks forward to the time when he loses his little girl.~ Paul Brenner, All Movie Guide
