  1. Ferrera and Gross are the most appealing pair I've seen in awhile; their calm confidence is a welcome antidote to the unrealistic couples who've been cluttering our screens way too long.
  2. Though the intended hilarity is forced and flat, there's a sweetness to the silliness.

    This broad ethnic farce serves up a full-on culture collision, but -- thanks to a handful of diverting performers -- stops just short of becoming a train wreck.
  4. 50
    A pleasant but inconsequential comedy, awkward for the actors, and contrived from beginning to end.
  5. The families' hopes for a tasteful, upscale wedding are sabotaged by warring egos and low-rent, walking-stereotype relatives.
  6. 50
    While patience is a virtue in a marriage, we shouldn't need quite this much to make it through a movie.

    The contrived insult comedy here feels old, borrowed and blue.
  9. It has a sweet quality, and Forest Whitaker gets a chance to show off his comic chops.
  10. It’d all be pretty ho-hum weren’t it for some decent chemistry between the leads and the effortless presence of Regina King and Forest Whitaker.
  11. Be prepared to swallow a lot of empty-calorie jokes in which blacks and Latinos insult and misunderstand one another in a spirit of vigorous buffoonery.
  12. Instead of invitations, they should be sending out apologies for Our Family Wedding, a cake-and-kisses comedy that has disaster written all over it and not for the right reasons.
