The Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) special event will benefit World Central Kitchen. Cast members include Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Martin Short, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Kieran Culkin, George Newbern, and a few special guests.
Father of the Bride premiered in 1991 and features Steve Martin delivering a winning performance as George Banks, the befuddled father who has a hard time letting go of his young daughter (Williams-Paisley) when she unexpectedly announces her plans to wed. The “I do’s” and dont’s of her big day prove no small feat for George as he runs into an off-the-wall wedding planner (Short), his patient, level-headed wife (Keaton), and hysterical hitches.
The movie was a critical and box office success, spawning a sequel in 1995 which earned Martin a Golden Globe nominee.
Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride Part II were directed by Charles Shyer and co-written by Shyer, Meyers, Frances Goodrich, and Albert Hackett.
