Thank God for Steve Martin and Diane Keaton. They lend a semblance of substance to a movie that, without them, would have none. At times Martin's performance feels muted; at other times he seems over the top. He's still the best thing about F2. Keaton possesses neither Martin's manic energy nor his flair for physical comedy, but she maintains a calm at the center of this cornball storm. They offer welcome relief within a movie choking on its own fluff and padding. Take the pair away and this Father knows bust.
Father of the Bride Part II.
Written by Nancy Meyers and Charles Shyer; directed by Charles Shyer; with Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Kimberly Williams, and Martin Short.
