In this hilarious update of the much-loved Hollywood classic, Steve Martin turns in a winning performance as George Banks, the befuddled father who has a hard time letting go of his young daughter (charming newcomer Kimberly Williams) when she unexpectedly announces her plans to wed. Tickling funnybones and touching hearts of critics and audiences alike, this entertaining treat chronicles George's hysterical trials and tribulations leading up to the big event. Diane Keaton shines as George's patient, level-headed wife, while funnyman Martin Short lights up the screen as the off-the-wall wedding consultant. FATHER OF THE BRIDE promises to love, honor, and deliver the kind of motion picture fun you'll thoroughly enjoy.|Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor starred as father and daughter in the original FATHER OF THE BRIDE, released in 1950.
