Editors Note
Note Forest Whitaker and Carlos Mencia headline this culture-clash comedy centered on the conflict between two headstrong fathers whose children are about to be married. With just two weeks to go before the big day, the disagreeable dads struggle to put aside their differences long enough to plan the perfect wedding. America Ferrera, Regina King, and Fred Armisen co-star.

ReviewSource Boston Globe
Review Our Family Wedding is another Hollywood fast-food sandwich. But instead of two squirts of ketchup someone actually took the time to lay some fresh tomato on that greasy bun. The movie tricks out the Guess Who's Coming to Dinner formula for a hyperrracial, upper-middle class 21st-century Los Angeles. Lucia and Marcus (America Ferrera and Lance Gross) have come home from New York to tell their families they're engaged. Will her folks freak out because he's black? Will his father have a fit because she's a Chicana? Honestly, who cares...The movie doesn't. The racial barriers are strictly procedural. Hours before they meet at a dinner, Lucia's dad (Carlos Mencia) tows the illegally parked car of Marcus's father (Forest Whitaker). They take umbrage via racial shorthand -- "I'm not your bro'' -- and it's not terribly sincere. At some point the men go for tuxedo fittings, and when Whitaker gets a load of Mencia's spiffy alabaster number, he almost has a tantrum: How come he gets the white one?...I like the way this movie tries to escape the box it's been crammed in both by the filmmakers and the studio marketing department. When its characters are actually connecting with each other, Our Family Wedding feels authentic. The trouble is that Famuyiwa wastes a lot of time with pratfalls and slapstick. No movie needs Forest Whitaker being humped by a Viagra-crazed goat. It also could survive without the obligatory family sporting-event sequence (softball, this time) and the broad stereotypes that drown the later scenes...Famuyiwa doesn't work much (his last movie was 2002's buppie romantic comedy Brown Sugar). But he has a knack for the way people relate to each other. The affection here is true and, where blacks and Hispanics in the movies are concerned, distressingly rare. It would be exciting to see him use that warmth and joy to help pull romantic comedy out Hollywood's dumpster.
