“Our Family Wedding”

By our guest blogger, Michaela Zanello

From Director Rick Famuyiwa comes “Our Family Wedding,” the story of newly engaged couple, Lucia and Marcus, whose marital bliss is interrupted before it even has a chance to commence by the high-flying tempers and egos of their clashing families. This nuptial comedy stars America Ferrera, Lance Gross, Forest Whitaker, Carlos Mencia and Regina King.

Lucia and Marcus are young, in love and engaged. As a twosome, they couldn’t be happier. They are about to find out, however, that when you marry someone, you are tying the knot with their entire family. After returning home from college, the happy couple invites each of their families out to dinner to announce their engagement. What should be a joyous occasion turns out to be a complete disaster as the two highly competitive alpha dads (Mencia and Whitaker) immediately butt heads. The madcap events that ensue make it anyone’s guess as to whether Lucia and Marcus will be able to survive their engagement long enough to actually make it down the aisle. With two overbearing dads and a wedding planning stage-mom, the only sensible one in the mix is Marcus’ dad’s best friend, Angela, who is able to successfully keep a level head even when the you-know-what starts to hit the fan.

The trailer for “Our Family Wedding” starts off by introducing the audience to both Lucia and Marcus along with each of their families. Right away, it is evident that these two groups of relatives are not going to be as much like peas and carrots as they are like lemon juice and paper cuts. From the trailer, Ferrera, Gross and King all appear very charismatic in this film, but it is the performances made by Whitaker and Mencia, who serve as brilliant comedic foils for one another, that steal the show. The trailer for “Our Family Wedding” does a superb job of setting the stage for this film to have plenty of familial strife layered with a profusion of humor and heart. If a scene encompassing two machismo father figures dealing with a very frisky, traditional, Mexican wedding goat is any indication of this film’s level of hilarity then the audience should be in for a real tickle-your-funny-bone kind of treat.
