Father of the Bride 2

Movie Summary

Charles Shyer

Father of the Bride 2 is a 1995 family romantic comedy movie by director Charles Shyer, starring Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Martin Short, and Kimberly Williams Paisley in this sequel to the hugely popular 1991 Father of the Bride. George Banks (Steve Martin) has finally come to terms with the fact that Daddy's Little Girl, Annie Banks (Kimberly Williams Paisley) has grown up and become Annie Banks-Mackenzie, the glowing wife of Bryan Mackenzie (George Newbern). That is, until he finds out that Annie is not just glowing for the post-marriage elation of having found one's soul mate. She is glowing from within, in the way that only mothers-to-be do. Oh boy. George is not ready for this. But the surprises do not end there, as soon George's wife, Nina Banks (Diane Keaton), announces that she, too, is pregnant, despite their advanced age. Let us just say that pregnancy was anything but planned and George's socks are blown off by the news. He is going to become a father again! And a grandfather too! Will George be able to keep his cool during this momentous, life changing time? Audiences all over are eager to find out and flock to watch the 1996 Golden Globe nominated Father of the Bride 2, which also received a nomination for a 1996 American Comedy Award and won a 1996 BMI Film Music Award.


Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Janet Maslin

    The bourgeois splendor of the Banks house is a major feature of Father of the Bride Part II, a cheerful, harmlessly ingratiating sequel on a par with its 1991 predecessor.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    What Meyers and Shyer have accomplished is to create a pleasant, sentimental domestic comedy out of a family that really has no problems to overcome, not an easy feat.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Father of the Bride Part II is not a great movie and not even as good as its 1991 inspiration. But it is warm and fuzzy, and has some good laughs and a lot of sweetness.
