Netflix officially rolled out its Father of the Bride reunion special, Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) tonight, and it brought the Banks family together with a few surprise appearances, too. Fans were treated to a short but sweet continuation of the ’90s family movie, reuniting Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Kieran Culkin and Martin Short, and checking in with what their characters are up to in 2020.
Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) immediately introduced the coronavirus pandemic, starting with a Zoom and adding references to a “quarantine beard” and multiple “Happy Birthday” rounds of hand-washing. But, the reason the Banks family all came together wasn’t to lament the “before times” or catch up while social distancing. Instead, Matty (Culkin) soon reveals that he’s gathered them all together for a much happier occasion: now he’s the one getting married.
While we’ve had plenty of reunions over the past six months (probably a record number, actually), Father of the Bride fans haven’t tired of them yet. Tonight’s Netflix special earned the seal of approval from fans, who expressed their delight with The Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) on Twitter.
“Ohh this Father of The Bride reunion is beautiful!!!,” one viewer wrote, while another added, “The Father of the Bride 3-ish reunion left me smiling with a good dose of nostalgia. Nancy Meyers never disappoints.”
But it was the surprise guests who stirred up an even bigger reaction. Netflix surprised us all with the addition of Florence Pugh and Ben Platt to the Father of the Bride special, with Pugh stepping in to play Megan and Platt taking on the role of Georgie, both all grown up now. “I’m happy to live in a world where Florence Pugh and Ben Platt are the babies from Father of the Bride Pt. II,” one viewer wrote.
And in an especially tough year, many viewers found comfort in the Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish), and the reunion special even brought some audience members to tears. It could be the nostalgia factor, or even Platt’s piano rendition of “The Way You Look Tonight,” but one thing’s for sure: people were getting teary over the Zoom.
“Crying watching Father Of The Bride 3ish Love it so much!!!,” one wrote. Another viewer added, “I’m not crying watching that Father of the Bride part 3 thing, you’re crying watching that Father of the Bride part 3 thing.”
If you missed out on all the action, don’t worry, you can still stream Netflix’s The Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish). Just head to the Netflix YouTube page, where you can stream it all the way through from the very start. But you just may want to have some tissues at the ready — you’ve been warned!
