I really like America Ferrera and Forest Whitaker and consider them both good actors, but I did not like this movie. It tried way too hard to be funny - and it missed the mark completely. I never laughed once during this film, and the scenes that were supposed to be "touching" were stale. I spent most of my time looking at my watch and waiting for the movie to end.
Centering around the surprise, impending marriage between a nice Hispanic girl and an African-American soon-to-be doctor, the movie tries to expose the humor between the two cultures when they attempt to become family. The result is shallow characters, predictability, and stupid situations.
I truly wanted this movie to be good, but the truth is I don't even think is worth paying to rent.
