This was the first thought that occurred to me after I watched the 1991 remake of Father of the Bride. It's a great example of the hilarity and insanity that runs wild within the family unit. It's also a very touching film at its core. (Rated PG)
It also got me thinking about other movies I've enjoyed that explore these odd little units we call families.
A quick google search pulls up many movies classified as "family relationship" movies.
The Parent Trap
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
and so on.
Why do you suppose there are so many movies about family? What makes them resonate with us? Why do we love so many of them?
Here are some I love:
The Sound of Music
Kramer vs Kramer
The Lion King
What are your favorite family-centric films?
