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.
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.
