STARRING Forest Whitaker, America Ferrera, Taye Diggs, and Carlos Mencia
WRITTEN BY Wayne Conley and Malcolm Spellman
DIRECTED BY Rick Famuyiwa

A young couple (America Ferrera and Lance Gross) try to put the finishing touches on their wedding plans — a feat not easily completed with their feuding families ruining the joyous occasion. Carlos Mencia and Forest Whitaker play the two leading causes of the chaos: the couple’s respective fathers. Can the families put aside their racial differences and petty gripes so the pair enjoy their nuptials? Seeing as how this looks like a happy movie, I’d be comfortable betting on yes.
