Dramedy: A long-divorced couple pretends to be married again in order to appease their adopted son's biological mother who's flown in for his wedding.
Don (ROBERT DE NIRO) and Ellie (DIANE KEATON) have been divorced for more than a decade, but are brought back together for the marriage of their adopted son, Alejandro (BEN BARNES), to Missy (AMANDA SEYFRIED), the daughter of Muffin (CHRISTINE EBERSOLE) and Barry (DAVID RASCHE). The latter aren't excited about her marrying a non-Caucasian, but Alejandro's siblings, Lyla (KATHERINE HEIGL) and Jared (TOPHER GRACE), couldn't be happier, which also holds true for Don's longtime live-in girlfriend, Bebe (SUSAN SARANDON).

A big issue arises when Alejandro's biological mother, Madonna (PATRICIA RAE), and sister, Nuria (ANA AYORA), fly in for the wedding. While Nuria is quite liberal, Madonna is conservative and Alejandro worries that she won't accept the fact that Don and Ellie are divorced. Accordingly, and with Father Moinighan (ROBIN WILLIAMS) waiting in the wings to perform the ceremony, the family decides to pretend that the two are still married. As the big day approaches, everyone must contend with the ramifications of that as well as their various individual issues.

Some of the younger cast members might draw in some teenagers, but beyond that it doesn't seem too likely.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
