One of those US comedies which thinks that playing it safe is a virtue. There's nothing really too offensive about this film, except maybe the gross and intolerable stereotypes and their uninteresting problems that have to carry us from start to finish. I sure don't enjoy watching that.

George's life is turned upside down when his daughter tells him she is going to marry. He doesn't really like the guy, the boy's parents are intimidating and worst of all: George isn't ready to let go of his little girl. But he'll have to, and he'll have to pay a lot of money for the wedding too.

Martin is saltless, the script and comedy are bland and none of the characters deserves sympathy. It's never too grating though and the pacing is pretty decent. The runtime isn't too excessive either, so getting to the end isn't that big of an ordeal. It's just a shame that there's nothing really remarkable going on.
