This film has such nostalgia value for me. I can't help but love it. Films like this one (a lot of them by Steve Martin, actually) warm my heart and remind me of my childhood, as well as having a great deal of comedy for newcomers. I adore this film! (Also, Diane Keaton is exceptional as always.)

While this is far from being one of my favorites it is still a decent movie, the script is well put together and the acting is good for this type of film. I would recommend this to fans of off beat and darker comedies.

George Banks; I used to think a wedding was a simple affair. A boy and girl meet, they fall in love, he buys a ring, she buys a dress, they say "I Do". I was wrong. That's getting married. A wedding, is an entirely different affair.

Matty Banks: Can I put Cameron back on the list if he promises not to eat?
George: You know, that's not a bad idea. Who else can we ask not to eat? My parents and your mother.
Annie: Why don't we just charge people? That way we can make money on the wedding?

Franck Eggelhoffer: Uh-oh, I bring the wrong color thread. I assumed you'd be wearing a black "tuxado."
George: It is a black "tuxado."
Franck Eggelhoffer: I don't think so, babe. This tux is "nuffy" blue. No doubt about it.
George: What're you talking about? Armani doesn't make a blue tuxedo.
Franck Eggelhoffer: Armani don't also make "polyaster."

George: Annie, it's a little nippy out, you might want to put on a sweater.
Annie: Dad, it's okay, I'm kinda warm.
George: Still, there's a chill in the air and you've been on a plane.
Annie: Dad, I'm fine.
Bryan: Annie, it is kinda cold out.
Annie: It is?
Bryan: Yeah.
Annie: All right, thanks, I'll get my jacket.

George: Drive carefully. And don't forget to fasten your condom.
Annie: Dad!
George: [shrieks in embarrassment] Seat belt! I meant, I meant seat belt.
