I hated, hated,
hated this movie.
the Parents is the kind of film for people who think that smashing
a wedding cake into the bride's face is funny. It is mean spirited and
excruciating throughout. I spent practically the entire movie cringing
at the ugliness of spirit and meanness that I saw on-screen.
stars as a young man who is about to ask his girlfriend's father for her
hand in marriage. Robert DeNiro plays the DYSFUNCTIONAL dad - I don't know
if he's just bought a new house, is going through a divorce or what, but
whatever possessed him to star in a dreadful film like this is beyond me.
He is just awful.
Ben Stiller has that chagrined,
embarrassed guy thing down pat, but the tortures that he experiences during
the weekend from hell, meeting his fiance's family are too nasty to talk
Am I making
myself clear? DO NOT go to see this movie at any theater, the Super Saver
Cinema, whatever - don't rent it, don't watch it on TV when it finally
is on TV - there are many other better ways to spend your time. Read a
book, go for a walk, watch TV even, but give this movie a big miss.
