Say “I do” to Our Family Wedding, the hilarious and heartwarming comedy with an all-star cast, including Academy Award® Winner Forrest Whitaker and stand-up superstar Carlos Mencia. When college students Marcus and Lucia (Lance Gross and Ugly Betty’s America Ferrera) make a surprise engagement announcement, their feuding fathers (Whitaker and Mencia) threaten to turn a dream wedding into a battle royal. Throw in eccentric relatives and clashing cultures, and you've got a recipe for laugh-out-loud lunacy and nonstop fun!
Cast & Crew
[A] slick, slapsticky, forgettable comedy, a cool-jazz riff on upper-middle-class American families sorting through misconceptions.
Ferrera and Gross are the most appealing pair I've seen in awhile; their calm confidence is a welcome antidote to the unrealistic couples who've been cluttering our screens way too long.
The likable cast keep things watchable, particularly handsome Gross, who is surely destined for bigger things, and Ferrera, who's still as sweetly unaffected on-screen as she was back in Real Women Have Curves.
Our Family Wedding is another Hollywood fast-food sandwich. But instead of two squirts of ketchup someone actually took the time to lay some fresh tomato on that greasy bun.
