"Father of the Bride"

When I was a little kid one of my favorite movies was Father of the Bride. I've probably seen this movie a few dozen times and I have all of the best parts memorized. I've always known that the 1991 version with Steve Martin was a remake, but I didn't know anything about the original. I put the original 1950 version with Spencer Tracy on my "movies to watch" list since I've been on a classic movie kick this past year. 
On Christmas day I took a little break from all of the craziness and escaped to my room for a little quiet time in the afternoon. Chandra and Sharon came with me and we turned on the original Father of the Bride. It was hilarious! Lots of times remakes really aren't a thing like the original, but the 1991 version was very similar to the original, and there were a lot of the exact same lines/scenarios. Nothing is ever top Steve Martin's Father of the Bride, in my opinion, since that's what I grew up loving, but I thoroughly enjoyed the original.

Remakes tend to send one looking for the original.
