"Father of the Bride" is the latest among countless films that have been revived, some more than once. It may surprise fans of the Steve Martin version that critics did not compare it favorably with the original starring Spencer Tracy. Will the new reboot with Andy Garcia get a better reception?
For your viewing pleasure (and to avoid some displeasure), we took a tour through cinematic history to revisit some of Hollywood’s efforts to revamp old chestnuts. Some remakes have been hits and some have been pretty big misses in the eyes of reviewers. We feature a bit of critical commentary from the time of the films’ release, but, of course, everyone’s a critic, so feel free to disagree.
Prices and availability are subject to change.
