First comes love. Then comes the interrogation.

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

A movie that centres on the dynamics between a supposedly overprotective father who hates all potential sons-in-law and a visiting hopelessly in-love potential son-in-law who will do anything to please... Read more

Found this incredibly funny with great performances by Robert de Niro and Ben Stiller. Thought the girlfriend could have been a bit more sympathetic towards Focker - would have made her a more believable character for me.

Provided you don't mind Stiller the early parts are watchable but it just gets sillier and collapses toward the end.

It's very funny. Ben Stiller is great a this kind of comedy because he lets himself be the butt of the jokes without trying to steal the film. Hard to resit fun.

I own Meet the Fockers on DVD and I always loved that movie. But I had never actually seen Meet the Parents. It was very entertaining and funny! A very good watch and I enjoyed it so much I purchased it. I would definately reccommend.

Boring, boring, boring. Sorry but I did not like this movie. You might like it. This movie would be good if you were watching it alone so that no-one else would be offended.

This is a good family show would teaches the kids how clever cats can be and to choose your future wife carefully.

I enjoyed the light humour though it is a great time waster. I mean that in a good way
