I have already talked about Father of the Bride: Part I, but the sequel is just as exciting. My usual opinions on sequels is that they aren’t as enjoyable, but not this one. Father of the Bride: Part II is even more comical, more heartwarming and overall, I enjoy it more. In this movie, Annie and Brian are going to have a baby, and Nina is thrilled. But, George is not so thrilled. He thinks they are too young and aren’t ready to take care of a baby.
However, this isn’t the only surprise for the Banks family. Nina starts to feel sick and tired all the time and they don’t know why. They finally realize she is probably going through menopause, so they go to the doctor. At the doctor, they get some very exciting and surprising news. Nina is pregnant! George is shocked, he doesn’t know what to say or how to react. However, the way he does act is definitely not helpful. He starts saying how they are too old to have a baby, how their child will grow up and have grandparents for parent, they won’t be able to hear their kid coming home late at night, etc. It is a hilarious scene, but Nina does not think so. She tell George that she feels excited, scared, and alone, because she doesn’t feel like she has her husband’s support. They continue to argue about the new baby and whether or not they can handle it.
Nina storms off and goes back to the McKenzies’ house, because they were staying their because they sold their other house. George goes for a drive through their old neighborhood and drives by their old house. He sees the new owner about to destroy it and thats when he makes a big move. He buys his house back, for a fortune, and goes to tell Nina. He asks for her forgiveness and tells her he bought the new baby a gift. He now thinks and knows that they can do it and that they are ready to have a new addition to the family.
As the months go on, Nina and Annie are pregnant together, and because Brian went out of town for business, Annie is staying at her parents’ house. George still has to go to work everyday, but Franck is there with the girls. He is there because he planned the baby shower, and constructed the baby’s new nursery. As the weeks go on, Annie and Nina are getting ready to deliver. They are both as big as beach balls and need a lot of attention. One night, George is so tired, he asks Franck for some sleeping pills, which worked a little too well. He was out cold and Annie suddenly started going into labor. Everyone was freaking out, and George was still asleep. So, Franck dragged George into the car and he drove everyone to the hospital.
At the hospital, George finally wakes up, and then something else happens. Nina was having some complications with her baby so they decide to deliver her baby the same night. By this time, George is very stressed and Brian is still not back. George and Franck switch back and forth between the two girls and they do the best they can. The doctor decides Nina needs a C-section or else the baby might die, and Annie is right about to deliver. As they are wheeling Annie to the deliver room, Brian comes out of the elevator and he makes it just in time to be with Annie. George waits outside while his daughter and grandson are being born. They finally arrive.
George first meets his daughter, Megan, named after the doctor. Then, he meets his grandson, George. It is a very touching moment and warms your heart. This is one of my favorite movies and I highly recommend it.
