Funny, that's putting it lightly. This movie is hillarious. People after the movie were laughing all the way to their cars.

Listen closely though, you wouldn't want to miss a funny line. If one goes over your head, play it back in your mind, then you will laugh right into the next line.

I haven't laughed as hard at a film since "There's Something About Mary".

This film started out with the right chemistry between DeNiro and Stiller. DeNiro portrays the neurotic father who always finds fault with the beaus of his daughter. Spiller is just an average guy who is thrown into the pecularities of the upper class. With good intentions, he bungles along the way, creating a host of laughs.

The chain of events is so funny that the laughter of the audience overcomes the next funny line. Some films are said to be "hilarious", but there are a line or two, a comic situation, but nothing more to offer. If you like to laugh non-stop, this is a film for you. It's clean, with few allusions to sex and vulgar language. PG-13 is an honest rating.

I'd say that it's great family entertainment for the 14 year old crowd with parents. This is one that I'd say, don't miss.

Ben Stiller is his usual hilarious self and DeNiro is surprisingly funny! This is right up there with "Something about Mary".

If you want to laugh your pants off... see this movie.

This was a great movie. I had heard many good things before I went to the see it, and I wasn't disappointed.

I felt bad for Stiller all the way through the movie. They even made his last name funny, when you see it you will know what I mean.

I didn't rate it a must see, because it doesn't need the big screen. I do think it is worth the 7.50.

This movie was very funny. It had the whole theater laughing in there seats.

I would say it is worth the theater price to see. I thought everybody in the movie did good acting jobs and Ben stiller was very funny. If you do not get a chance go see this movie. Go see it on video cassette when it comes out.

I thought it was well worth it and so did my friends.

"Meet the Parents" was an excellent and very funny movie. I was laughing all the way through the movie. Robert Deniro and Ben Stiller both do some great acting in this film. Some of the humor isn't appropriate for children under 13, but for everyone else out there- GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!

A funny little movie starring Ben Stiller as a man caught between his girlfriend and his strict father, played by Robert DeNiro. The film has some laughts as Stiller tries to mend with his father-in-law. Consider the cat to be funny. I love the cat.

We thought this movie was hilarious, a must see for anyone looking for a belly laugh type comedy. We can't wait until it comes to video to watch it again.

Worth seeing, if a little on the brainless and overly-obvious side.
