Here we go again with yet another remake of a Steve Martin movie, which in turn was remade based on the Edward Streeter novel. The Banks family is replaced in this adaptation of father of the Bride by the sour-faced patriarch Billy Herrera's Cuban American family, the Herraras (Andy Garcia). Billy is struggling since his marriage is in trouble and both of his daughters have grown up and established independent careers. When Billy's eldest gets engaged, it appears there is nothing he can do to stop an impending disaster (of his own making).

Father of the Bride adopts the same worn-out story while adding a few surprises. The perfect daughter who has developed into a successful, independent lawyer and modern lady is the eponymous bride, Sofia (Adria Arjona). The narrative is driven by the clear confrontation between her modern ways and Billy's traditional ways. Billy is upset when Sofia casually reveals her engagement to a man she has only recently met while she is visiting the family because it was his little child who made the proposal. Then, a further thorn in Billy's side is introduced to the public in the form of Adan Castillo (Diego Boneta), a compassionate individual who cares about the world and is anxious to work with Sofia at a non-profit organisation in Mexico.

When the groom's father meets his future son-in-law and his family, a series of events that are motivated by prejudice and a great deal of pride take place. The difference in wealth between the bride's family and the groom's family is less of a problem in this version. Billy's worries and fears are actually more a result of feeling powerless and unloved. Adan's differences—such as his preference for tea over coffee, his open distaste for boxing, and his lack of concern for money—might bother Billy, but that is not the issue Billy needs to solve. Billy's obstinate character is also discussed in the film.

The script by Matt Lopez is passable but not particularly noteworthy. The discourse, in particular, comes out as restricted. Even though the bulk of the characters are able to speak Spanish, there is an evident attempt to cater to a non-Latinx audience by having most of the dialogue spoken in English. This doesn't mean to disparage the film. However, the presence of phoney progressive white characters who ignorantly overuse their Rs and confound Spanish and Cuban cultures for laughs is a warning that not all is right in this film. There was no reason for moments in father of the Bride where white individuals behave ignorantly and then thank the main characters in jest for "keeping them accountable" after being called out.
