Can love really conquer all--including the biggest alpha dads in the universe? That's what the adorable young couple in Our Family Wedding gets to find out. The couple, played winningly by Lance Gross (Marcus) and America Ferrera (Lucia), are so deeply in love that they never realized the possible backlash of their respective dads, Brad (the always-compelling Forrest Whitaker) and Miguel (standup comic Carlos Mencia). While similar, earlier films like Guess Who's Coming Together played off black and white racial prejudices, Our Family Wedding tackles black and Latino prejudices, which make up the bulk of the plot and the dialogue (the film also takes on class differences; the African-American family is quite wealthy, while the Hispanic one is working class). Our Family Wedding is crisply directed by Rick Famuyiwa, at a mere 90 minutes, and he manages to pack a lot of Dad vs. Dad antagonism into the festivities, leavening the arch with some decent belly laughs (goats and Viagra definitely don't mix). "They'll love you," says the smitten Marcus, "because I love you." But if it were that easy, there wouldn't be a movie, would there? Our Family Wedding brings in elements of Father of the Bride, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Meet the Parents--even Grand Canyon--to explore the tensions of blending families that don't necessarily want to be blended. The terrific cast, which also includes the gracious Regina King and Diana-Maria Riva, brings deft delivery and big hearts to this interracial love story. --A.T. Hurley
