Father of the Bride Part 2 ★★½ 1995 (PG)

Sweetly sentimental update of the 1951 film “Father's Little Dividend” finds George Banks (Martin) once again thrown for a loop—first by his beloved daughter Annie's (Williams) pregnancy and then by wife Nina's (the radiant Keaton) announcement that they are about to become parents themselves. George doesn't deal very well with either situation but, aided by fey party planner Franck (Short), he manages to get through the predictable chaos. Martin's physical expressiveness and sly charm are a big plus. 106m/C VHS, DVD .
