A remake of the 1950's Spencer Tracy / Elizabeth Taylor classic in which an ordinary guy has to take on the planning, expense, and complications of his daughter's wedding. Martin Short appears in the hilarious role of the wedding coordinator while Steve Martin has one of his best roles as the man who realizes his little girl is all grown up.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
Father Of The Bride 15th Anniversary Edition
You're invited to celebrate with this funnier-than-ever 15th Anniversary Special Edition of a timeless comedy. Steve Martin delivers a winning performance as George Banks, the befuddled father who has a hard time letting go of his young daughter (Kimberly Williams) when she unexpectedly announces her plans to wed. The "I do's" and don'ts of her big day prove no small feat for George as he runs into an off-the-wall wedding planner (funnyman Martin Short), his patient, level-headed wife (Diane Keaton), and hysterical hitches. You won't want to miss the never-before-seen bonus features, including behind-the-scenes interviews, commentary, and the Steve Martin & Martin Short interview -- now available to have and to hold forever!
This remake of the 1950 classic, "Father of the Bride," places even more emphasis on the comedic aspects of planning a wedding. While worrying about his daughter's increasingly more elaborate and expensive wedding, a California shoe manufacturer frets about his prospective son-in-law's suitability and his changing relationship with his beloved daughter.
