It proved that even though the characters are living in the digital age, it has not affected the dynamics of their friendship.

The conversation rehashes some "FotB" stories and gives updates on the characters before viewers learn the real reason for the family chat: Matty, now a 37-year-old writer, would like to marry his doctor girlfriend Rachel (Shipp), who's quarantining in a hotel room, on Zoom. "Dad, you coming to the video call?" The original "Father of the Bride" in that franchise, which was a remake of the 1950 film by the same name, premiered four years previously in 1991. Another sweet part of the reunion was George Banks' voiceover, which played over his son's marriage which was spliced with scenes from the original movies. The movie ended with Annie boarding the flight to Europe and George and Nina being the only ones left in the house. During an April special, the cast of Parks and Recreation reunited to imagine how the town of Pawnee, Indiana might be weathering the crisis.

After the reunion special, stream the original films for the ideal family movie night.
