"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.

"Format: DVD Viewing: 2nd or 3rd Thoughts: Been a while since I watched this and revisiting it I have to say it holds up really well as a classic modern comedy. Mainly because you have Ben Stiller at his comedic peak (why is he not still doing comedies like this today?) and Robert De Niro stepping into the comedy realm and completely owning it. Owen Wilson also nearly steals the show and adds great support. This movie is basically the Rocky of new boyfriends vs overprotective fathers movies. Ever"
