Here comes Father of the Bride ... again! The classic romantic comedy is getting another reboot, with an all-Latino cast, on HBO Max. Andy Garcia stars as the titular dad, with the incomparable Gloria Estefan as his secretly estranged wife. 

Father of the Bride streaming details

Father of the Bride begins streaming Thursday (June 16) at 3 a.m. ET on HBO Max (opens in new tab).

Cuban-American patriarch Billy (Garcia) is stunned when his daughter Sofia (Adria Arjona) announces she's engaged — and she's the one who proposed to fiancé Adan (Diego Boneta)! While he might not totally get their modern sensibilities, Billy is determined to give his daughter the wedding of her dreams.

That means hiding the fact that his marriage to Ingrid (Estefan) is on the rocks. And it also means welcoming Adan's big, raucous Mexican family, the Castillos. Hopefully, Billy can rise to the occasion and see Sofia off into wedded bliss.

Father of the Bride has famously been adapted previously into a 1950 film starring Spencer Tracy and a 1991 remake with Steve Martin.
