Storyline

In Our Family Wedding, they learn the hard way that the path to saying "I do" can be rife with familial strife. When they return from college and too suddenly announce their marriage plans, they soon discover that their fathers - two highly competitive over-the-top egos - can wreak a major amount of havoc on their special day. With insults flying and tempers running high, it's anyone's guess if the alpha dads will survive to make it down the aisle in one piece. Lucia's mother is busy planning the wedding of "her" dreams and the only levelheaded one in the bunch is Angela, the groom's father's best friend and lawyer, who manages to keep her cool when the madness reaches a crescendo.

It is a lovely romantic comedy...
24 February 2011 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Despite it being based on a storyline that have been used numerous times in Hollywood already, "Our Family Wedding" was still entertaining to watch.

The story is about Lucia Ramirez (played by America Ferrera) and Marcus Boys (played by Lance Gross) planning to get married. They are of different ethnicity which of course is the base for a lot of hilarious moments throughout the movie. And they have to tell their parents, who is going to plan their wedding. Again, lots of fun comes from this.

The cast in "Our Family Wedding" is quite good. Lots of really nice actors and actresses in this movie. The lead roles are played by America Ferrera and Lance Gross, and they do have good chemistry on the screen. However, the ones that made it worthwhile was Forest Whitaker (playing Brad Boyd; Marcus's father) and Carlos Mencia (playing Miguel Ramirez; Lucia's father) as they struggled to deal with each other and the differences in culture.

"Our Family Wedding" is a romantic comedy in every sense, because of the story and the laughs. But there is more depth to the movie, as it deals with the cultural differences and how to overcome them. I liked that aspect of the movie as well, and it did cause some good laughs. Despite it being a storyline that has been seen over and over, "Our Family Wedding" still managed to come out as a good result.

If you like romantic comedies, then you should definitely check out "Our Family Wedding" because it is actually quite good.
