"First comes love. Then comes the interrogation."


  • Director: Jay Roach
  • Genre: Comedy, Romance
  • Studio: Universal Pictures
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 100 Mins

In this smash-hit comedy, a girl (Teri Polo) takes her potential groom (Ben Stiller) home to meet her parents (Robert De Niro, Blythe Danner). In the course of the weekend, he loses the cat, floods the garden and has his various weaknesses painfully exposed by her father, a former CIA operative. Given the set-up, this film from Austin Powers director Jay Roach could have been predictable and cliché-ridden, but the sheer class of the cast elevates it into something really special. Stiller gives the unfortunate beau humanity and realism; De Niro's gravitas makes "dad" an intimidating presence; and Blythe Danner is a suitably quirky prospect as the mother-in-law; though arguably it's the cat that steals the show. Ridiculously funny and somehow rather endearing, this is just the kind of fare to make the prospect of your own family festivities seem far less formidable.
