Our Family Wedding
A young black man and a Latino woman have been secretly living together for a while, and now decide they want to get married. Problem is that neither of them have told their families about the relationship, out of fear. They decide to bite the bullet and let everyone meet at a restaurant, but naturally things do not go to well. From then on it's a struggle as the two families try to persuade them not to wed, and they forge ahead with their plans regardless.

eye Weekly
Chandler Levack quote iconFor all of Our Family Wedding’s broad set-ups, movie-comedy pandemonium should never feel as ambling and rudderless as this.
