Consistently hilarious and perpetually enjoyable

"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.

A good movie

Sure, if you check this movie nowadays, it didn’t grow old very well, especially after watching the abysmal ‘Little Fockers’ . On top of that, we have been witnessing, during the last 15 years, Robert De Niro spending most of his time ruining his fine legacy by showing up in some very underwhelming features. The point is that, back in 2000, the situation was not so dramatic with De Niro and... read more

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.

“Sure, if you check this movie nowadays, it didn’t grow old very well, especially after watching the abysmal ‘Little Fockers’ . On top of that, we have been witnessing, during the last 15 years, Robert De Niro spending most of his time ruining his fine legacy by showing up in some very underwhelming features. The point is that, back in 2000, the situation was not so dramatic with De Niro and we all thought he had the right to show up in a commercial comedy for once. Personally, I really liked this flick. Indeed, Ben Stiller was pretty good but, above all, Robert De Niro was just really hilarious and he completely stole the show.

Actors That Turned Down Memorable Roles (10 movies items)

" Ben Stiller as Greg Focker in "Meet the Parents" Jim Carrey was actually attached to playing Greg Focker in Meet the Parents before Ben Stiller. Carrey even contributed jokes to the screenplay, such as the main character being named 'Focker'."

“I love this film! It's a beautiful story that packs a lot of punch for a conventional comedy coming out of Hollywood. There's a lot of thought put into it with some great values for the audience to take with them.” read more
