Our Family Wedding Trailer: Forest Whitaker and Carlos Mencia Together at Last

Brando and Pacino. Farley and Spade. Whitaker and Mencia. In Our Family Wedding, Forest Whitaker plays a wealthy black guy (no stretch there), whose car is towed by Carlos Mencia, a Mexican (he's a method actor). They disagree. They say mean things. They find out that their children are engaged! Dios mio, we get the feeling planning this wedding is going to be headache full of hijinks and racial stereotypes (Mexicans love goats! Black people love the Electric Slide!). And that's exactly what it is. It's hard to watch this and not wonder why this thing didn't join Wild Hogs 2 and Wedding Banned on the movie scrap heap.
