CHILDREN OF THE BRIDE (the first installment of the "...Bride" trilogy starring Rue McClanahan, is a gentle and funny comedy, perfect for the entire family.
Middle-aged divorced mother of four Margaret Becker (Rue McClanahan, "The Golden Girls") stuns everyone with her plans to marry John Hix (Patrick Duffy), a man 15 years her junior. The wedding plans get off to a rocky start when Margaret invites her four grown-up children (Jack Coleman, Anne Bobby, Kristy McNichol and Conor O'Farrell) back home...each of them harbours personal problems that threaten Margaret's new-found happiness.
Co-starring Kristy McNichol ("Empty Nest"), CHILDREN OF THE BRIDE was filmed during the height of "Golden Girls"/"Empty Nest" mania. It was later followed by two well-received sequels ("Baby of the Bride" and finally "Mother of the Bride").
