How to Watch Father of the Bride Online From Anywhere

Father of the Bride will premiere soon on HBO Max, and we're looking forward to watching this romantic comedy reboot. The story has been adapted on screen before, so the name may sound familiar.

Directed by Vincente Minnelli, the 1950 film starred Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett, and Elizabeth Taylor in the lead roles. Then, in 1991, Steve Martin took on the father's role, alongside Diane Keaton, Kimberly Williams, Martin Short, BD Wong, and Kieran Culkin. Now, the comedy has an all-Latino cast, featuring Andy Garcia, Gloria Estefan, Adria Arjona, Isabela Merced, Diego Boneta, and Chloe Fineman. The story remains the same as we observe a father struggling to cope with the reality that his daughter is getting married.

The two parents - played by Garcia and Stefan - have their own issues as they're getting divorced. When the families of the bride and groom finally meet, things get even more complicated as the two families (one Cuban and one Mexican) have to learn to work together to make the wedding a success. 

Father of the Bride premieres exclusively on HBO Max on June 16, 2022, at 3 am ET. The PG-13 movie has a run time of 1 hour and 58 minutes.

How to Watch Father of the Bride Online From Anywhere

Watching content online is super easy nowadays, but if you travel abroad, you'll hit a wall because most streaming platforms are geo-blocked. If you want to bypass the blockades, that's perfectly doable, but you'll have to use a VPN to watch Father of the Bride from abroad. VPNs work by routing your Internet connection and spoofing your IP address, so you appear to be in a different location. 

As our go-to VPN, ExpressVPN has proven itself with a range of streaming services, including HBO Max, Netflix, and Disney+. ExpressVPN has thousands of servers worldwide, so you can watch Father of the Bride from anywhere. You can try ExpressVPN for 30 days RISK-FREE, thanks to its no-questions-asked money-back guarantee. 

You can subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% discount and 3 months FREE) by creating an account and paying for your plan. Next, you have to download the app for your chosen device or system. When it is installed, launch the app and choose a server located in your home country. Once the connection is established, you can launch HBO Max and start watching Father of the Bride online from anywhere.

How to Watch Father of the Bride in the US

The Latin adaptation of Father of the Bride was developed by Warner Bros. Pictures. Since HBO Max is owned by Warner Bros Discovery, it's only natural that the movie would end up on this service. A subscription to this platform will cost you $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year for the ad-supported plan and $14.99 per month or $149.99 per year if you want to watch ad-free content.

You can also get HBO Max through third-party providers like Apple, Google Play, or Roku, with apps being available for pretty much all of the platforms out there. 

HBO Max is often available as a premium channel add-on for various streaming and live TV platforms. For instance, you can get it as an add-on with your Hulu service, which will cost you an extra $14.99 per month (ad-free plan) on top of the regular $6.99 Hulu plan. However, you get to test the HBO Max plan for a week before you are charged for it. 

You can also get HBO Max with your YouTube TV plan as a Premium Add-On Network for $14.99 per month. Right now, YouTube TV will only cost $54.99 for the first 3 months before the price goes back up to $64.99 monthly.

DirecTV Stream also features HBO Max on its list of premium add-ons. It will cost you $14.99 per month, which goes on top of the DirecTV Stream subscription. The cheapest plan for DirecTV Stream costs $54.99 for the first 2 months and $69.99 monthly after.

Regardless of your decision, you will need a trusty VPN to watch the film when traveling abroad, so make sure you have one installed. Just pick a server located in the United States so you can connect to it before accessing HBO Max. 

 How to Watch Father of the Bride in Canada

If you live in Canada, Father of the Bride will be available to stream on HBO via Crave. Crave comes with multiple premium networks, including HBO, Showtime, and even STARZ. The pack costs $19.99 per month, and you get a week-long free trial. 

If you're going to travel abroad, you'll need a strong VPN on hand because most streaming services are geo-blocked. You'll need to connect to a Canadian server when you turn on the VPN, and then access Crave to watch Father of the Bride.

How to Watch Father of the Bride in Australia

Australians can watch the remake of the classic story on Binge. HBO Max isn't available as a standalone service, but you can enjoy all the content via Binge for $10 per month, and you get a 2-week-long trial to test it all out. You can also stream the movie on Foxtel's Movies Premiere channel.

Whenever you travel abroad, you can use a capable VPN to watch Father of the Bride as well as other content on Binge. Make sure to choose a server located in Australia before accessing the streaming service. 

Can I Watch Father of the Bride in the UK?

HBO Max is, unfortunately, not yet available in the United Kingdom. Although we don't have a release date yet, we know that most HBO content usually is available in the UK through NOWTV, so there's a chance it might drop there soon.
