Find more information regarding Meet The Parents from the Internet Movie Database
Ben Stiller plays a man who is about to meet his girlfriend's parents for the first time. Everything, and I mean, EVERYTHING goes wrong in a comedy about embarassment and Murphy's Law. Robert DeNiro plays his girlfriend's father, so you know things are going to heat up.
Recommended to all who can stand being embarassed beyond belief.
This movie can be painful to watch. Some of the circumstances are rather predictable, but laughable regardless. I heard someone mentioning that Ben Stiller is more or less playing the same character he's been in several films, most notably There's Something About Mary. I would concur. Perhaps this is more a reflection of Ben Stiller playing himself rather than a particular role written for him.
