It's everyone's idea of a nightmare weekend. Having fallen in love, you are forced to spend time of varying quality with your potential in-laws. This is the tricky task which faces Stiller as he prepares for the company of De Niro's Cold War secret agent, his daunting wife and a plethora of friends and family you'd go to the ends of the earth not to have to choose. The beauty or beastliness about Meet The Parents is the safe predictability of the gags. De Niro's performance is somewhat flat, but Stiller's edgily fatalistic performance is a joy.
