Betsy's Wedding
Alan Alda, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, Madeline Kahn and Joe Pesci

Rated: PG 
Reviewed by: Frank and Chris  
Release date: June 22, 1990 Released by: Touchstone Pictures

Alan Alda's creation conceived at this daughter's wedding can't help but remind one of The Father of the Bride with Spencer Tracy. Alda's film, however, is uneven and clumsy because it drags in too much outside influence into the family. Ally Sheedy, as the sister of the bride and a cop, steals the film by falling in love with the nephew of an underworld godfather. This film will appeal to young women.
