If you think that title sounds bland, wait till you see the movie.

Two young Angeleno college graduates (America Ferrera, Lance Gross) want to get married – she's Hispanic, he's black – and once their respective families are over the shock there's the mother of all dingdongs about who runs the wedding. Most of the hostility is parcelled out between the couple's dads (Forest Whitaker, Carlos Mencia), though there's some old-school racist sniping in the wings from the Latina grandma. On and on it goes, truly, badly, meekly, before reaching the slapstick climax of a Viagra-chowing goat running amok through the nuptial feast. Laugh? You'll have seen funnier divorce proceedings.
