Our Family Wedding looks like a newer version of Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mack‘s flick Guess Who?, which is actually just a newer version of 1967’s Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, starring Sidney Poitier. Basically, two people from different nationalities and backgrounds decide they are in love and want to get married, and their two families go through a bit of culture shock, and shenanigans ensue! While the story may be a little recycled, they have definitely put a new spin on it with America Ferrera as the blushing Latino bride (man, we miss you, Ugly Betty) and Lance Gross as the studly African American groom. Plus, no one can deny how hilarious Carlos Mencia is in just about any situation. With a street date of July 13th, the Blu-ray and DVD includes multiple deleted and extended scenes, a behind-the-scenes featurette, a gag reel and more. Make sure you check out the preview for Our Family Wedding and the full synopsis for the film after the jump, as well as some great stills.
Film Synopsis: To have and to hold… ‘Til dads do us part. The battle of family traditions is on when Our Family Wedding ties the knot on Blu-ray and DVD July 13 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) and Carlos Mencia (“Mind of Mencia”) star in this clash-of-cultures comedy about two overbearing dads who must put aside their differences to plan a wedding for their children, Marcus (Lance Gross; Meet the Browns) and Lucia (America Ferrera; “Ugly Betty”), in less than two weeks. As the wedding brings out the best and worst in both families, the young couple soon discovers the true meaning of love and finds there is truth to the saying – that when you marry someone, you marry their entire family.
An event that can’t be missed, Our Family Wedding is directed by Rick Famuyiwa (Brown Sugar) and features outrageous supporting performances from Regina King (This Christmas), Diana-Maria Riva (17 Again), Shannyn Sossamon (“How to Make It in America”) and Charlie Murphy (“The Boondocks”).
