Father of the Bride, directed by Charles Sayer, is a modern remake of the 1950’s film starring Spencer Tracy. This time the role of doting father is played be Steve Martin, and Diane Keaton plays his long-suffering wife.
The story begins with Martin’s daughter announcing her imminent marriage. Reluctant to see his beloved daughter leave the family nest, he feels more like he’s losing a daughter than a gaining a son-in-law.
As preparations for the big day get started, there follows a chain of comic events, helped along by delightful Martin Short, superb as the wedding organizer for the occasion.
Steve Martin gives just as admirable a performance as Tracy did in the original film, and brings his own unique brand of humour to the part.
Father of the Bride is essentially a funny, enjoyable film, suitable for old and young alike. For those of you who like a good chuckle, it’s well worth going to see.

Ex. 18. Read the critic’s review and fill in the gaps with one word. Then read it again and answer the questions:
What is the film about?
Who stars in the film?
Where and when does the story take place?
