Gloria Estefan and Andy Garcia star as a married couple whose daughter surprises them with plans to marry her fiancé in Father of the Bride. The rom-com remake arrived on HBO Max on Thursday (June 16).
Directed by Gaz Alazraki, Father of the Bride centers on a Cuban-American family’s unbreakable bond and “illustrates the surprising and funny ways the heart can adapt in the name of love,” per Warner Media.
Garcia plays Billy Herrera, the patriarch of the Herrera family who is coming to terms with his daughter’s upcoming wedding. Meanwhile, Billy and his wife, Ingrid (Estefan) are on the brink of divorce.
The latest edition of Father of the Bride is the third remake behind the 1991 film starring Steve Martin and Dianne Keaton and the original 1951 film starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor. Father of the Bride is adapted from a 1949 novel of the same name.
