The film, a remake of the 1950 original movie of the same name, tells the story of George Banks (Steve Martin), who has to come to terms with his daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) getting married and moving out. Diane Keaton plays his wife, Nina.
The reunion, introduced by Reese Witherspoon, was to benefit the World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing meals to communities affected by disasters, such as the coronavirus pandemic.
Called together by the Banks’ son, Matty (Kieran Culkin), for a special wedding announcement, the family gathered for a Zoom call. Along with Martin, Keaton, Williams-Paisley and Culkin, George Newbern and Martin Short reprised their roles as Annie’s husband Bryan MacKenzie and over-the-top European wedding planner Franck Eggelhoffer,
