Yes, you heard it right. There's a new Father of the Bride movie, which means the show has been remade a third time. Coincidentally, each version of the film has been released 30 years apart. The movies are also a reflection of the values observed during the time they were released.
When Were the Previous Father of the Bride Movies Released?
The first Father of the Bride movie was released in 1950 and starred Spencer Tracy and Joan Bennett. After that, the film was remade in 1991 with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton. The second remake spawned two other films, Father of the Bride Part II (1995) and Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) (2020).
All iterations were adapted from the 1949 Father of the Bride novel written by Edward Streeter. As shared in the book, the characters are mostly Anglo-Saxon actors. In the new Father of the Bride (2022) film, however, things get changed as the cast is now made up of Cuban and Latino actors and references.
What Is the New Father of the Bride Movie About?
The new Father of the Bride movie retells the same story as the previous films. But the key differences between each movie are what make them fresh and relatable to the audience.
Apart from having a Cuban-American cast, the new film has some important distinctions to its plot. One such change is how the proposal was made. Instead of the man proposing, the new movie shows the woman proposing to her boyfriend. Another change that we see in this film is that the bride's parents are on the brink of divorce.
But at the end of the day, the film is all about a father and how he reacts to his daughter getting married and then accepting the fact that his daughter is all grown up.
