IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO START ACTING LIKE A FAMILY.
When their adoptive son Alejandro (Ben Barnes) is about to get married, Don and Ellie (Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton), who are divorced, have to pretend to still be married in order to satisfy Alejandro’s biological mother. This remake of a French romantic comedy, Mon frére se marie (2006) could have looked like a belated, mature sequel to Parenthood (1989), perhaps, but is too silly and slapsticky and crams far too many storylines into the script. A pleasant, star-studded cast helps, including Robin Williams as a priest once again.
2013-U.S. 89 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed by Justin Zackham. Cast: Robert De Niro (Don Griffin), Diane Keaton (Ellie Griffin), Susan Sarandon (Bebe McBride), Robin Williams, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried… Topher Grace.
