Those looking for a culture-clash comedy are in luck this weekend with Our Family Wedding, starring America Ferrera and Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker. Is it any good?
"...though the intended hilarity is forced and flat, there's a sweetness to the silliness that's likely to find a warm welcome..."
— Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
"...Guess Who's Coming to Dinner gets a modest comic update in Rick Famuyiwa's Our Family Wedding."
— Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
"...be prepared to swallow a lot of empty-calorie jokes in which blacks and Latinos insult and misunderstand one another in a spirit of vigorous buffoonery before dancing together in maniacal harmony during the never-in-doubt wedding-scene finale."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"An unconvincingly broad culture-clash comedy..."
— Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
"Hitching a Mexican-American bride and her African-American groom to a noisy and increasingly tiresome family feud, this broad ethnic farce serves up a full-on culture collision, but — thanks to a handful of diverting performers — stops just short of becoming a train wreck."
