Family Commitments (2015)

  The film is a classic comedy farce. Characters are exaggerated, everyone is deceiving someone, and no one in the audience expects anything but a good time. The reason I liked this film was because it was interesting, well-acted, and very funny.

  David and Khaled are happily in love, poised to marry. Their attempts for matrimonial harmony are thwarted by family foibles: a homophobic father, a pseudo-orthodox Jewish mother, and an unexpected pregnancy. The two men have a few things to straighten out before they can say their vows and live happily ever after.
  An endearing and wacky family comedy.
