Plot outline: A Jewish male nurse (Ben Stiller) plans to ask his live-in girl friend (Teri Polo) to marry him. However, he learns that her strict father (Robert DeNiro) expects to be asked for his daughter's hand before she can accept. Thus begins the visit from Hell as the two travel to meet Mom (Blythe Danner) and Dad, who turns out to be former CIA with a lie detector in the basement. Coincidentally, a sister (Nicole DeHuff) also has announced her wedding to a young doctor (Thomas McCarthy). Of course everything that can go wrong, does, including the disappearance of Dad's beloved Himalayan cat, Jinxie. Summary written by John Sacksteder {jsack@ka.net} Greg and Pam are in love. Greg is nervous about spending his first weekend with her parents. He tries very hard, sometimes too hard, to please her overbearing dad. Greg frequently ends up comically embarassing himself in front of the entire family all because he loves Pam so much. What won't he do to try and please Pam and her family?

Comment: [CONTAINS SPOILERS] Greg Focker is a male nurse. Yes, his last name is pronounced just like it's spelled. He's going to upstate New York with his fianceť Pam for her sister's wedding. Greg has never met her parents before and is nervous. Upon their meeting, Jack is smiling on the outside, but detests Greg on the inside. Jack Byrnes is also cat lover. He even trained his cat to use the toilet; Greg accompanies Jack to the drug store. It seems that Jack was up to something. Greg endlessly tries to impress Jack, but doesn't work. One night, Greg accidentally stumbles into Jack's secret office. Jack notices and introduces Greg to his polygraph machine, so he gives Greg a lie detector test; Jack forbids Greg and Pam to sleep together while under his roof. It was that, or the Long Island expressway, quotes Jack. Next morning, Pam's sister Debbie and her fianceť Bob come over with Bob's parents Linda and Larry. They go to Best Man Kevin's house later. Kevin is an aficianado in wood working. He carved an altar for the bride and groom. He's also got a big swimming pool where the families play volley ball, which ends in disaster. More disasters to follow! Jack's cat escapes and Greg disguises a similar looking cat as Jack's in order to impress him. But Jack soon discovers the cat is fake. Greg knows he knows so they have a drag race home. Greg is kicked out. But later, Jack decides to give Greg a chance. It took much convincing from Pam and wife Dina; Funny movie! I hear there's going to me a sequel: Meet the Fockers where Greg and Pam will get married, so the Byrnes' meet Greg's parents. They gotta be decent people to name their son Gaylord Focker. Gaylord is Greg's real name. It opens next year. But until then, we can all enjoy this movie. Robert De Niro is good as Jack. Jack seems very unfair to Greg at times. It seems like his one ambition in life is to make Greg's miserable. Ben Stiller is good as Greg. The tantrum Greg throws on the plane because his bag is too big for carry-on is timeless! So was his performance during the time he was on candid camera without knowing it. Also you'll find out what Puff the Magic Dragon means, according to Greg. Owen Wilson is good too. He always plays a positive kind of guy. This film comes recommended by me! See it ASAP! --
