Some sequels don't deserve a sequel, but popularity may decide otherwise. I could've lived without a second Father of the Bride film, apparently enough people liked the first one though, so more had to follow. Rarely do these sequels amount to much, this film is obviously no exception to the rule.

Steve Martin got mental about his daughter marrying in the first film, this time around she's getting a baby. Martin is not happy with becoming a grandfather, which makes him feel old and useless. As he's going through a little midlife crisis, he has no idea what life has in store for him.

If your idea of funny is watching Martin getting upset about nothing, this might be a comedy for you. It's more annoying than it is funny though. Very few jokes land, the performances are bland and the runtime is a little excessive for such a simple comedy. I'm just glad they didn't make a third one.
