Editorial Reviews

Say 'I do' to Our Family Wedding, the hilarious and heartwarming comedy with an all-star cast, including Academy Awardr Winner Forrest Whitaker and stand-up superstar Carlos Mencia. When college students Marcus and Lucia (Lance Gross and Ugly Betty's America Ferrera) make a surprise engagement announcement, their feuding fathers (Whitaker and Mencia) threaten to turn a dream wedding into a battle royal. Throw in eccentric relatives and clashing cultures, and you've got a recipe for laugh-out-loud lunacy and nonstop fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Warm & Fuzzy Comedy with a Great Cast March 25, 2010
By Compay
Our Family Wedding is a good movie, just know in advance that it's not a flat-out comedy. Shot by the same director as 1999's "The Wood", it's mostly a warm movie about love and marriage, with a few funny scenes thrown in.

The best part about the film is its cast. A gorgeous America Ferrera shines as Lucia, wife-to-be of future doctor Marcus Boyd (Lance Gross of House of Payne). Great acting and chemistry between the two offer warm scenes that will make viewers both laugh and cry. As a long time fan of Forest Whitaker, it was refreshing to see him in a comedy. And is it just me, or does Regina King get even more lovely with each film?

While Chappelle Show veteran Charlie Murphy has limited screen time in the movie, he steals every scene that he's in. Warren Sapp, Noel Gugliemi and Taye Diggs also make for funny moments, though all three get "blink and you missed them" roles (Diggs oddly isn't credited).

My biggest complaint with the movie is that the story has been done before. Boy meets girl, parents get involved, culture clash ensues, all leading up to a predictable ending. It's more Meet the Parents than Hangover, with only a few laugh out loud moments (though the reception seating montage is funny and clever). What's interesting is that they really don't milk the ethnic differences as much as you'd assume that they would.

It isn't a comedy blockbuster, but it's still a good film, especially if you enjoyed movies like The Wood. A good cast and some feel-good moments make it worth watching at least once before you decide on buying the DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Our Family Wedding Review April 29, 2010

STARRING: Forrest Whitaker, America Ferrera, Carlos Mencia, Lance Gross, Regina King, Diana-Maria Riva, Lupe Ontiveros, Anjelah N. Johnson, Charlie Murphy and Shannyn Sossamon

WRITTEN BY: Wayne Conley, Malcolm Spellman and Rick Famuyiwa

DIRECTED BY: Rick Famuyiwa

Rated: PG - 13
Genre: Comedy
Release Date: 12 March 2010
Review Date: 25 March 2010

Our Family Wedding was good, but it was barely good. As has been the case countless times in comedies and romantic comedies lately, it's the film's actors that save the film. Is it the writing or is it the directing and producing that is continuously falling short? It's often tough to say, but regardless of the condition of the screenplay, it's the producers, editors and directors who are the last ones to touch the project; I'm just saying.

Forrest Whitaker, as is probably to be expected, out-acts everyone in the film. He is just brilliant, and can steal any scene from any actor bold enough to share it with him. Here, he plays Brad, the father of Marcus (Lance Gross).

Marcus is happily engaged to Lucia (America Ferrera) and the two are madly in love. There's just one little problem; neither of them have told their parents. To make matters worse, they are both worried that the fact that
Marcus is black and Lucia is Hispanic, may play a part in causing an issue between their folks. Oh, and they are leaving the country, and have been secretly living together as well, which is a big no-no in Lucia's family.

Carlos Mencia plays Lucia's somewhat obsessive father, Miguel. If you know anything about Mencia, you will be blown away by him in this film. He really is a talented actor.

By O. Rios
Our Family Wedding is a good, clean cut film about a culture clash between Mexican and African American families who must come together as their kids are getting married.

The film includes Carlos Mencia, America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), Forrest Whitaker, Regina King, and Lance Gross (House of Payne).

Gross and Ferrera are set to get married and haven't yet told their parents about their plans until 3 weeks before the wedding. What begins is a culture clash between the two families, with the Mexican family taking over with their classic Mexican Catholic wedding traditions.

Overall, the movie is great. It's not an instant classic like My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but it's up there. As a Hispanic myself, i couldn't help but laugh with how accurate they were with some of the traditions. The movie is a great comedy, and the reception seating parts are the best.

For a good laugh without the cussing and odd "what does this sex scene have to do with the movie", i would recommend Our Family Wedding. Good cast, good acting, and great overall movie, and Mencia is great in the movie.

The name to that song is called "Desire" by Jose James and the name of his CD is called The Dreamer.

I would like to know, what was the name of the song that was playing...
I am looking for the same thing...I would love the name of the entire soundtrack if anyone knows. I don't know what is going on, but has anyone else noticed that soundtracks don't seem to be preceding movies like they use to, and in this case and the case of a few other movies I am interested in,... Read More
