It is a lovely romantic comedy...
Despite it being based on a storyline that have been used numerous times in Hollywood already, "Our Family Wedding" was still entertaining to watch.
The story is about Lucia Ramirez (played by America Ferrera) and Marcus Boys (played by Lance Gross) planning to get married. They are of different ethnicity which of course is the base for a lot of hilarious moments throughout the movie. And they have to tell their parents, who is going to plan their wedding. Again, lots of fun comes from this.
The cast in "Our Family Wedding" is quite good. Lots of really nice actors and actresses in this movie. The lead roles are played by America Ferrera and Lance Gross, and they do have good chemistry on the screen. However, the ones that made it worthwhile was Forest Whitaker (playing Brad Boyd; Marcus's father) and Carlos Mencia (playing Miguel Ramirez; Lucia's father) as they struggled to deal with each other and the differences in culture.
"Our Family Wedding" is a romantic comedy in every sense, because of the story and the laughs. But there is more depth to the movie, as it deals with the cultural differences and how to overcome them. I liked that aspect of the movie as well, and it did cause some good laughs. Despite it being a storyline that has been seen over and over, "Our Family Wedding" still managed to come out as a good result.
If you like romantic comedies, then you should definitely check out "Our Family Wedding" because it is actually quite good.
