Meet the Parents

FIRST COMES LOVE. THEN COMES THE INTERROGATION.

meettheparentsGreg Focker (Ben Stiller) is set to meet his fiancĆ©eā€™s (Teri Polo) parents for the first time, but trying to impress her father (Robert De Niro) is no cakewalk.Ā A box-office smash where everything that can go wrong for Stillerā€™s character does; that always seems to be a recipe for success in his films. Stillerā€™s great and De Niro is quite effective as the conservative control-freak in-law with a career in theĀ CIA. The concept is a good set-up for a comedyā€¦ but too few sequences are genuinely funny. Thereā€™s something wrong when the best gag in the movie is Gregā€™s last name.

2000-U.S. 108 min. Color.Ā Directed byĀ Jay Roach.Ā Song:Ā ā€A Fool in Loveā€ (Randy Newman).Ā Cast:Ā Robert De Niro (Jack Byrnes), Ben Stiller (Greg Focker), Blythe Danner (Dina Byrnes), Teri Polo (Pam Byrnes), James Rebhorn, Jon Abrahamsā€¦ Owen Wilson, Kevin Hart.

Quote:Ā ā€œYeah, you gave me the wrong suitcase. Uh-huh. Yes, itā€™s a black Samsonite. Uh-huh. Ok, well donā€™t you think that the Samsonite people, in some crazy scheme in order to make a profit, made more than one black suitcase?ā€ (Stiller, talking on the phone to the airline)
