'''''Father of the Bride''''' is a [[TheNineties 1991 film]], a {{remake}} of a 1950 film of the same title. It stars Creator/SteveMartin and Diane Keaton as George and Nina Banks (no, not [[Film/MaryPoppins THAT George Banks]]) as the parents of [[DaddysGirl Annie Banks]] (Kimberly Williams Paisley) who is about to [[WeddingDay get married]] to Bryan [=MacKenzie=] (Creator/GeorgeNewbern), and while her rather skinflint BumblingDad nearly has an aneurysm about the costs of the wedding, he realises slowly that [[SheIsAllGrownUp Annie has grown up]] and is leaving him. Yes, it sounds cliché, but the film has so many warm moments.

The second one begins with George sitting in his living room, and again backtracked over several months.
