It’s even accessible in airports, hotels and other places where you can watch TV…now you don’t have to wait for your hotel room to be ready or wait in an airport.

The storyline of The Father of the Bride
The story of the Father of the Bride is a classic, full of joy and sorrow, as well as romance. It is also an ideal blend…
The story revolves around Steve Lawrence, a dentist who lives in Brooklyn with his wife Molly and their four children. When he was named “Father of the Year”, it became a reality for them to have their five perfect family members gathered together for Christmas dinner.
One person they were unable to invite though was Steve’s father George… As he hadn’t been in touch with his daughter in years and her husband was the father of all their children. When Steve’s mother (Molly’s mother) Elsie (a wondrous lady who had a way with words) suggested that perhaps they could just have a small get-together amongst Steve’s family, Molly was more than happy to oblige and brought the idea up to Steve, who readily agreed. This made everyone happy.
‘Father of the Bride’ attracted HBO Max’s largest audience for a broadcasting movie
The ’80s film classic—the 1987 adaptation of the Emily Brontë novel, starring Steve Martin and Elizabeth Taylor—is now available to watch for free on the HBO Now streaming app. “Father of the Bride” was a box office success, but it made its real mark in syndication over the next decade. With a budget of $12 million, it has pulled in more than $1 billion at home since 1988, making it one of network television’s most successful shows ever.
The film was Martin’s follow-up to his debut Academy Award-winning movie “Roxanne,” which he starred in and wrote. “Father of the Bride” also is noteworthy for launching a TV vehicle for Martin, who earned an Emmy nomination for each of five seasons as George Banks, a father going through the stress of planning his daughter’s wedding. The show ran on CBS from 1991 to 1995.
