    Synopsis


    Meet the Parents
    In this comedy from Austin Powers director Jay Roach, Ben Stiller plays a young man who endures a disastrous weekend at the home of his girlfriend's parents. Greg Focker (Stiller) is completely in love with Pam Byrnes (Teri Polo), and views their upcoming trip to her parents' house on Long Island (where her sister is to be married during the weekend) as a perfect opportunity to ask her to marry him. Once Greg is introduced to Pam's parents, however, things stampede steadily downhill. Pam's father, Jack (Robert De Niro), takes an instant and obvious dislike to his daughter's boyfriend, lambasting him for his job as a nurse and generally making Greg painfully aware of the differences between him and Pam's family. Where Greg is grubby, relatively unambitious, and Jewish, Pam comes from a long line of well-mannered, blue-blooded WASPs. Things go from bad to worse in less time than it takes to spin a dreidel, with Greg incurring the wrath of both Pam's father -- who, it turns out, worked for the CIA for 34 years -- and the rest of her family, and almost single-handedly destroying their house and the wedding in the process. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

      I enjoy this film & it’s follow up "Meet the Fockers". Certainly NOT the best film ever made-far from it. Enjoyable. I am NOT a fan of Ben Stiller's. This is 1 of the 4 films I like where he is in a starring role. The other 2 "Night at the Museum" & "There’s Something About Mary" HE BASICALLY PLAYED THE SAME ROLE IN ALL 3 FILMS. A nobody reacting to things going on around him & overreacting. I actually like the follow up film more than the original. Another negative of the original: Owen Wilson Only got to see him briefly in the 2cd film. Randy Newman’s same old music-we’ve heard in films over the years & they all sound the same. Good NOT GREAT extras on the DVD package. Hard to feel for Stiller’s character in either film when his character lies all the time. The speeding to get back to Jack's (DeNiro's) house because of the Jinx’ the cat lost bit. WHERE WAS THE NEEDED REACTION FROM THE OTHER CHARACTERS ABOUT GREG SPEEDING & BEING UNSAFE?

      Disappointing

      My wife and I are always looking for lighthearted, funny family movies. We thought "Meet the Parents" might be a good one, but it turned out to be a disappointment for us. Although there were a few real funny moments in the movie, overall we found the story line to be contrived and unrealistic, with most of the humor revolving around off-color jokes, disrespect for other people, or the absurd. If you enjoy that sort of content, you will probably like this movie. That wasn't what we were looking for, though, so the DVD was not one we wanted to see again or retain in our video collection.

      I thought Meet The Parents was hilarious when I saw it in the movie theater, but it's even better on DVD. The outtakes and deleted scenes will have you rolling on the floor. A must-see movie for engaged couples and for anybody who enjoys a good laugh.

      This is one of those movies that always makes me laugh! It's fun to watch their outtakes, too! You can see that it must have been a fun cast to be a part of.

      Funny Film

      Parts of the film have "The Office" like humor; suttle, awkward moment humor. But it also has moments that will make you laugh out loud. Great movie to purchase.

      Meet the Parents is an above average comedy starring Affleck, DeNiro and a host of others. Plenty of laughs to be had

      Extremely funny movie with a great plot. Ben Stiller is great in this movie, along with Robert Dinero.
