Father of the Bride (1991)

"Drive carefully and don't forget to fasten your condom"

Meet George Banks (Steve Martin), businessman, husband, and father of two children. His oldest Annie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) has recently returned from overseas after completing college. She is daddy's little girl and what makes the world-go-round for George. There's only one problem. In her travels Annie meets a young man named Brian (George Newbern) who has asked for her hand in marriage. Annie of course being young and in love says yes taking George's world by storm and his wallet. He is forced to do every fathers worst nightmare...letting go of his baby girl. His wife Nina (Diane Keaton) hires an over the top wedding planner Franck Eggelhoffer (Martin Short) and George soon realizes he's on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

This is a remake of the 1950 classic of the same name. Steve Martin at his comedy best, this is a sweetheart comedy for all. Filled with unforgettable characters and some of the funniest scenes ever put on film. Martin Short is the perfect polar opposite to Martin's character and as the two go at it the laughs never let up. 4/5 -tom
