The sequel to Father of the Bride (1950) this movie tells of all the excitement when Kay announces she is going to have a baby, and all the associated feelings from both sides which culminate from it.
A sweet enough movie, while not particularly intelligent it also forces the characters to remain in their cookie-cutter boxes in which the first film placed them in. It’s also an interesting film to watch from a generational perspective as well, with the family attitudes displayed as the story progresses – Kay and Buckley moving into a house on a new development, and Kay’s scolding of her child later on being two examples.
While not particularly intelligent, it is a diverting look at 1950s suburban family politics.
MY RATING: ** / *****
