This cinematic charmer is one even your in-laws are sure to love. The original 1950s-era "Father of the Bride" is full of maudlin moments from a seemingly simpler time, but it's Spencer Tracy's refreshing snarkiness as the father of the bride that we love. We giggled at some of the movie's outdated sentiments ("From now on, your only function is to pay the bills," a partygoer tells Tracy). The overall appeal, however, is clear: A wedding's more than gowns and guest lists; it's a time to share your feelings with those you love.
