Review of Father of the Bride   

An average movie

15 Views   No comments
Those last few years, I have seen many Steve Martin movies and, honestly, most of them were utterly disappointing so I tend to get low expectations before watching any of his movies. However since this flick was pretty successful and has a decent reputation, I was rather curious to check it out. Eventually, I have to admit that it was not bad at all. Indeed, Steve Martin and Diane Keaton were both pretty good and they delivered some decent performances. Still, it was nothing mind-blowing though as I thought it was just too predictable and I didn't care much about the story and the characters involved. I guess they tried to reproduce the same success they had with 'Parenthood' which is one of most highly regarded comedies starring Steve Martin but they never reached that level. Eventually, it was nice and I had a good time watching it, that's for sure, but it was not much more than that. Plus, I always find Martin Short rather annoying and this movie wasn't an exception, I'm afraid. Still, it remains a well made and entertaining comedy and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
