Father of the Bride Part II (PG) Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, and Martin Short are all back for this sequel, in which Keaton’s character is pregnant at the same time as her daughter (doe-eyed Kimberly Williams). Once you know the gimmick, you can predict the jokes. The picture starts off weak but finishes strong — wacky and weepy, silly and sweet. And oh, those adorable babies at the conclusion! It’s a big, corny, old-fashioned movie, but as crowd-pleasers go, it’s a shrewd one. B-
