Does Carlos Mencia make it work in "Our Family Wedding"?
With Carlos Mencia and Forest Whitaker starring in "Our Family Wedding" what could go wrong?
"Our Family Wedding" — One enters a movie like this bracing for cheesiness.
But as "Our Family Wedding" moves along, the realization dawns that director Rick Famuyiwa ("The Wood") has made a mostly charming movie despite its cliche milieu.
But, thanks partly to the performances, the film is mostly filled with quieter, more realistic moments. With a soundtrack of Daptone soul, kicked off by Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings. PG-13 for some sexual content and brief strong language.
Running time: 101 minutes. Two stars out of four.
