Watch Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Kieran Culkin in ‘Father of the Bride 8’ ‘SNL’ parody

1 min read

Steve Martin and Martin Short reprised their iconic Father of the Bride characters, George Banks and wedding planner Franck Eggelhoffer, respectively, in a spoof on Saturday Night Live.

In Father of the Bride 8, the titular bride, Annie Banks (Heidi Gardner), is ready to give marriage an eighth shot, but the Banks are understandably financially and emotionally drained. The parody plays with the premise of the classic 1991 Nancy Meyer rom-com and riffs on endless franchises. Chloe Fineman tests out her Diane Keaton impression as the mother of the bride, Nina, who became a Lyft driver to pay for the weddings and Kieran Culkin shows up to remind us that he played Annie’s kid brother all those years ago, and grown Matty Banks still talks like a child.

Martin and Short’s Only Murders in the Building co-star, Selena Gomez, popped in to name her price as a wedding singer ($1.8 million) rounding out the star-studded sketch.
