Video Trailer For Our Family Wedding, Starring America Ferrera, Forest Whitaker, and Carlos Mencia 2010-01-05 14:30:20

Movie Preview: Our Family Wedding

I love a good cinematic "I do" (Father of the Bride is one of my faves), but I'm worried that the latest big-screen nuptials, Our Family Wedding, is missing the mark. The film stars America Ferrera and Lance Gross as an engaged, mixed race couple. Once preparations begin, their Mexican and African American families clash, particularly their fathers (Carlos Mencia and Forest Whitaker), as the two dads try to outdo each other.

the goat thing is stupid; but the movie looks promising. it really is a rip-off of Guess Who's Coming To Dinner Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy, and Katharine Hepburn) and its surpisingly good remake Guess Who (with Bernie Mac and Ashton Kutcher); both of which offered wonderful but not cheesy nor hypocritical observations of racial divides and how love and respect can bring any people together (sounds cliche but the former was quite innovative and the latter refreshingly real). plus I'm sure Forest Whitaker would not pick a project of this subject that is not well-executed...

I think it has potential. Plus, I love Lance! He's super hotttt to me so I would probably see it just for him anyway.

This looks like a straight-to-dvd kinda movie. I like America Ferrera but this movie is not one of her better choices...

While it probably is really bad, I do want to see it. The goat thing is too funny.
