Saturday Night @ the Movies: Our Family Wedding
A few weeks ago my grandmother and I had a conversation that I will never forget. She first pretended to care about how ZuneSpring was doing, and how my grades were, but being the blunt British instrument she has always been I knew she would get to the point. It only took two minutes before I heard the words “So when are you settling down?” This Saturday night we’ve got the movie that inspired her to ask this question, and inspired me never to share relationship details with any of my family,“Our Family Wedding”.
From Zune Marketplace
“Newly engaged couple Lucia and Marcus learn the hard way that the path to saying “I do” can be rife with familial strife. When they return from college and suddenly announce their marriage plans, Lucia and Marcus soon discover that their fathers – two highly competitive, over-the-top egos – can wreak a major amount of havoc on their special day. With only weeks to plan their wedding, Lucia and Marcus will discover the true meaning of love and find there is truth to the saying – that when you marry someone, you marry their entire family”
Now I don’t know that it’s fun for the entire family, however what I do know is the scene with Charlie Murphy, and Taye Diggs, had me in fits of laughter for days. Both Forest Whitaker, and Carlos Mancia bring the funny. Yes neither are what I would call Class A comedians but it doesn’t matter, the script is just that good. This Saturday night grab a tub of popcorn, snuggle up with your girlfriend on the couch, (be prepared to answer any wedding questions that may come up), and checkout “Our Family Wedding”, availalbe for rental or purchase in the Zune Marketplace
