Our Family Wedding

Interracial lovebirds America Ferrera and Lance Gross want to tie the knot, but before they can break the news to their parents, his father (Forest Whitaker), a prominent LA radio personality, clashes with hers (Carlos Mencia), the owner of an auto repair shop. The men's exchange of ethnic slurs signals what lies ahead, as the families' hopes for a tasteful, upscale wedding are sabotaged by warring egos and low-rent, walking-stereotype relatives. Rick Famuyiwa (Brown Sugar) directed this vacuous and contrived comedy. In English and subtitled Spanish. PG-13, 101 min.
