Our Family Wedding (2010)34K
Our Family Wedding: Directed by Rick Famuyiwa. With Forest Whitaker, America Ferrera, Carlos Mencia, Regina King. The weeks leading up to a young couple’s wedding are comic and stressful, especially as their respective fathers try to lay their long standing feud to rest.
“u0026quot;Our Family Weddingu0026quot; has some good actors and two great actors, Forest Whitaker and America Ferrera, but a horrible script. A young interracial couple travel back home to tell their families theyu0026#39;re getting married and to plan a quick wedding. Their fathers, their cultures and their families clash. This is just rehashed material and no better than a poor manu0026#39;s u0026quot;Guess Whou0026#39;s Coming to Dinneru0026quot;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThey were going for laughs, and although I did laugh-out-loud in a few scenes, most of the lines were just rude, and all of the characters, especially Whitakeru0026#39;s, were just being insubordinate. Every character had friction with one another and sometimes we werenu0026#39;t even privy to the reasons, so not only were we not laughing, weu0026#39;re frustrated as well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe few laughs were not enough to overcome the frustration and many pointless scenes. Even if they were going for drama instead, there is no sense of drama just from watching characters act in horrible ways because the script tells them to. I canu0026#39;t really recommend u0026quot;Our Family Weddingu0026quot;, only possibly to die-hard fans of the genre and fans of America Ferrera. This is a Ferrera we havenu0026#39;t seen before, mature and subdued, and she at least was nice to watch.”
