MEET THE PARENTS stars Ben Stiller as the unfortunately named Greg Focker, a neurotic nurse intent on marrying his girlfriend, Pam (Teri Polo). But when the couple visits Pam's family home for her sister's wedding, he must first win the approval of her father, Jack (Robert De Niro), a protective ex-CIA agent. Before long, the awkward Greg and the suspicious Jack go head-to-head, resulting in hilarious scenes that feature a lie detector test, a suburban car chase, a toilet-trained cat, and a mean game of water volleyball. As the misunderstandings and mistakes reach an almost nightmarish peak, it seems as though Greg may never win over Pam's unflinching guardian.
Featuring the inspired pairing of Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller (and an excellent appearance by Owen Wilson), director Jay Roach's clever comedy exemplifies every man's worst fears about courtship. When things for Stiller's character get bad, they just continue to get worse, culminating in a ridiculously funny airport scene. In the tradition of ANNIE HALL and FLIRTING WITH DISASTER, MEET THE PARENTS is an intelligent yet slapstick comedy about the eccentricities of the American family.

Male Nurse Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) is poised to propose to his girlfriend Pam (Teri Polo) during a weekend stay at her parents' home. But here's the catch...he needs to ask her father first. Alas, the fur flies as Jack Byrnes, Pam's cat-crazy, ex-CIA father, played hysterically by Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, takes an immediate dislike to her less-than-truthful beau. Greg's quest for approval gets seriously sidetracked as Murphy's Law takes over and a hilarious string of mishaps turns him into a master of disaster and total pariah in the eyes of the entire family... all except for his shell-shocked girlfriend, who can't believe she still loves her one-man wrecking crew. Meet the Parents from the director of Austin Powers, is an uproarious blockbuster hit that bombards you with one laugh after another, as true love tries to conquer all, against all odds.

Movie Reviews

Entertainment Weekly - 8.3/10 by Lisa Schwarzbaum It's a bouncy, loose limbed, ''families do the darnedest things'' sitcom that elicits ungrudging laughs.
Chicago Reader - 7.0/10 by Lisa Alspector Scenes that should have been uproarious are weaker than many of the movie's smaller moments.
Baltimore Sun - 8.8/10 by Chris Kaltenbach De Niro and Stiller combine to bring on laughs you don't have to feel guilty about.
San Francisco Examiner - 6.3/10 by Wesley Morris What begins as unassumingly dull wanders into disarming chaos.
New York Post - 7.5/10 by Jonathan Foreman Part sitcom, part comedy of manners - but it lacks the courage to deal honestly with class and ethnicity.
Chicago Tribune - 7.5/10 by Michael Wilmington These two actors have a kind of genius for dark comedy: Stiller for suffering through crises and De Niro for creating them.
Film.com - 7.0/10 by Sean Means Delivers its humor with clockwork reliability.
USA Today - 7.5/10 by Susan Wloszczyna With near-Swiss precision, director/producer Jay Roach and his writers make sure familiarity breeds hilarity.
