Father of the Bride 2 (1995)

"Vat Planet? The planet of not wanting to die, by a drive by shooting!"

We return to the world of George Banks (Steve Martin) who after the marriage of his daughter has finally accepted life must go on. Still happily married to his wife Nina(Diane Keaton), George is coasting through life waiting on retirement. Expecting a visit from his daughter Annie(Kimberly Williams Paisley) and her new husband Brian (George Newbern), George receives some unexpected news. He is going to be a grandfather. Putting his mid-life crisis in full go. Not wanting to except that he is getting older he rebels by changing the way he acts and even dying his hair. One night, with the house to themselves George and Nina take advantage of the quality time and weeks later are given one more surprise, they're not only going to be grandparents but they're going to have another baby. Have no fear, Franck (Martin Short) is here; who not only does weddings but also dabbles in taking care of mothers to be.

With the entire cast of the original returning along with a special appearance by "American Pie's" Eugene Levy as Mr. Habib, this is a comedy sequel that is just as good as the original. Good family laughs all around. Steve Martin and Martin Short are back at it again making for some priceless comedy moments. 4/5 -tom
