Father of the Bride Part 3(ish) - This might be the best thing to happen during 2020!

Where are my 90s kids at?  If you're like me, you watched the Banks family plan a beautiful wedding with all kinds of comedic fun along the way in 1991 and then again 1995 watched the hilarious family escapades continue when both mother and daughter ended up pregnant at the same time.  Starring Steven Martin, Diane Keaton, Martin Short, and Kimberly Williams-Paisley, both Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride Part II are movies I will never forget and can watch over and over again - even decades later.  

Fast forward to 2020 where life has pretty much been turned upside down and finding reasons to laugh may sometimes seem difficult.  Nancy Meyers, the leading mind behind the 1990s Father of the Bride movies, brought the cast back together for something truly special - Father of the Bride Part 3(ish).  Yeah, you read that right. . .3(ish).  While bringing laughter and love to all, the special is also aimed at supporting the fight against hunger as viewers are encouraged to donate to World Central Kitchen.

So, what's the fuss all about?  Well, I'm not going to spoil it but I will say it is a must-watch for any Father of the Bride fan.  The Banks family is gathering together on a family Zoom call (very 2020 of them!) and brother Matty has a big announcement.  Not only do we see the original cast back together again, but you'll also get a grown up look at George and Nina's youngest daughter as well as George's grandson - also named George.  There are also some other new additions on the Banks family Zoom call, but you'll have to tune in to see who they are and how they fit in.  I'll just tease a little bit and share that Robert DeNiro plays one of the characters!

The short special is only 26 minutes in length, but it is full of laughs and heartwarming moments.  I made the mistake of watching it while on the treadmill and found myself fighting back tears while trying to do my workout.  George's reflections on fatherhood are as touching as ever and hit me even harder now that I'm a mom myself.  

Tune in below and see this truly wonderful family back on screen again!  Don't forget to donate to World Central Kitchen also to support those in need!
