"Mother of the Bride" is about Lana's daughter, Emma, coming back from abroad and surprising her mom with the news that she's getting married in Thailand in just a month. The twist? Emma's future husband is the son of Lana's old flame who broke her heart years ago. 

Its made primarily focusing Gen X audience. It's also funny and has things that people around 50 years old will like.

The movie rather than focusing on Cosgrove and her impending nuptials, its focused on Shields and her interactions. The characters are grounded and convincingly portray a protective mother trying to navigate newly unearthed feelings that had been buried many years prior. The movie deals with regrets over past actions, particularly those that one is not proud of.

For romcoms, 88 minutes is a perfect length. The story arcs are obvious and tick just about every box necessary for a romcom. While character development is thin, some story additions, such as Chad Michael Murray's character, are unnecessary. Some plot pressures are vaguely defined and uninteresting, especially with Miranda Cosgrove's business ventures.

The locations are beautiful. The setting is Thailand, with coastal views, tropical images, and the backdrop of a Posh Resort. The quaint and relaxing atmosphere complements the easygoing style of the narrative. The characters are very likeable, friendly, and get along well, seem like they've been friends for a long time.

The most surprising thing about this movie is how ripped Benjamin Bratt and Wilson Cruz are for being above 49 years old.

While not the best romcom ever made, it is very far from the worst. Just seeing the cast makes it a simple and fun casual watch, with no sex or nudity, a tiny bit of profanity, and no violence.
