Father of the Bride: 15th Anniversary Edition

Review By: Staff

Father of the Bride Special Anniverary Edition

Short, sweet and to the point. For once I am going to follow that formula.

Father of the Bride was first released in 1990 And for those of you who haven't seen it here we go. Steve Martin plays a dad who is nowhere near ready to have his baby girl grow up and get married. Unfortunately it's too late. She (Kimberly Williams) has found her prince charming () and cat wait to walk down the isle. Keeping dad in check is his level-headed wife, played by Diane Keaton, who couldn't be more thrilled about the upcoming nuptials. And just to add in a little more comedy bring in the effeminate, oddly accented Franc (Martin Short) to plan the wedding and rack up the price. He brings swans or ducks or some sort of bird. (I admit I didn't watch the movie again.) And of course throughout this nothing ever goes right for dad.

It's a good movie. It's funny and definitely worth watching if you haven't seen it, or watching again if you have. Martin Short is the comedic Martin Short from the days before Jiminy Glick. Steve Martin pulls off the physical comedy he is best known for and Diane Keaton is a fabulous actress. I like her in everything I see her in. But the special features are nothing special. There is a ten minute behind the scenes documentary clever titled 'An Invitation to". It's mostly music and everyone raving about each other. I always wonder if they mean what they say. There is and audio commentary but who really cares? Does anyone ever listen to those things? The only remotely decent extra is Steve Martin and Martin Short interviewing each other only I wouldn't call it an interview. It's mainly them interrupting each other to get laughs. They get some.

Overall Father of the Bride Special Anniversary Edition is just trying to cash in on re-release. As I always say with re-releases if you like the movie buy the special edition but if you already have it, just watch the one you have.
