Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Steve Martin's comic antics make this remake a sweet confection of a movie. Still, parents should know that this movie mythologizes the high-cost, over-the-top wedding as though it were a requirement for all -- the wedding industry does a fine job of that on its own. Martin Short's flamboyant character is funny, but an unfortunate gay stereotype at the same time.

Sexual Content

Violence

Some pratfalls but no real violence. Martin's character pitches a fit in a grocery store, lands in jail.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Good father-daughter relationship.

Consumerism

Mythologizes the high-cost, over-the-top wedding as though it were a requirement.
