"I will be watching you and if I find that you are trying to corrupt my first born child, I will bring you down, baby. I will bring you down to Chinatown."

The experience of dating can be harrowing in itself, and meeting the parents of a loved one may be the most intimidating part of the ritual. Helmed by comedy veteran Jay Roach (Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me), Meet the Par... read more

I can't imagine a scarier situation than Robert De Niro becoming your father-in-law.

Greg Focker is ready to marry his girlfriend, Pam, but before he pops the question, he must win over her formidable father, humorless former CIA agent Jack Byrnes, at the wedding of Pam's sister. As Greg bends over backward to make a good impression, his visit to the Byrnes home turns into a hilarious series of disasters.

Movies That Suck (14 movies items)

"By and large, I just don't like movies where every single possible thing that could go wrong for a person (and that person is a pretty decent guy and doesn't deserve what's happening to him) does, but everyone's still against him. Movies like that aren't comedies. All they do is piss me off. 4/10 "

Film Journal - January 2014 (95 movies items)

" One of my favorite comedies, and Ben Stiller films. I especially like the volleyball scene with him accidentally hitting Owen Wilson's charecter on the nose. A lot of the humor, comes from Greg desperately trying to impress Jack, and his family, only to have everything back fire on him. The sequels are okay, but I like the first movie a lot more. "

Movies i have watched in 2014 (80 movies items)

"04.01.2014 "I had no idea you could milk a cat!" "Oh, you can milk just about anything with nipples." "I have nipples, Greg, could you milk me?" This movie is still pretty funny, but i have to admit that my enjoyment of it has gone down a bit after the two awful sequels came out. I never even watched Little Fockers. The trailer was enough to tell me that was a piece of shit. But let's just try to forget about those two and pretend this was a stand alone movie."
