Netflix is currently screening a new romantic comedy called Mother of the Bride starring Benjamin Bratt, Brooke Shields, and Miranda Cosgrove. Here’s everything we’ve heard so far.
Mark Waters is on board to serve as the film’s director. He previously worked with Netflix on the 2021 rom-com, He’s All That But Vampire Academy (2014) and The Spideric Chronicles (2008).
