Despite sometimes sitcom-like execution, Meet the Parents is a hilarious look at familial relationships that works mostly because the chemistry between its two leads is so effective.

Scenes that should have been uproarious are weaker than many of the movie's smaller moments, whose everyday humor isn't specific to the plot or characters.
Alas, poor Focker. He can't help himself. And we can't help ourselves from falling about, equally helpless, at this superbly antic movie.
Astutely observed, subtly played and consistently hilarious...
When the script puts its faith in the audience, allowing us to find the laughs on our own, the film is irresistible, a bright lark. Yet when the writers panic, upping the antic volume and shifting into crazed sitcom gear, the lark stops.
A hilarious hodgepodge of The In-Laws and Annie Hall, in which De Niro gives his best comic performance to date.
Meet the Parents is a one- -- well, maybe two- -- joke idea that starts out goofy and fun, but soon runs out of verbal or visual ammunition.
Star-driven comedy at times offensive and funny.
...large swaths of the proceedings feel as though they'd be more at home within a garden-variety sitcom.
What gives the film its special kick is the match of Stiller and De Niro.
Nobody plays put-upon quite like Ben Stiller.
Packed with cringe-worthy moments from beginning to end, Jay Roach's comedy is for anyone who has ever endured a weekend in the company of potential in-laws.
Owes about 55 percent of its charm to De Niro, who can be hilarious just sitting there.
A cool funny film as Ben Stiller has to win over his girlfriends parents. Some very funny scenes with De Niro as the protective father.
Uses very quiet like performances with hilarious outcomes. A different comedy that stands out amongst the toilet-slapstick-fart-joke movies that are coming out nowadays.
I wish some of the slapstick gags were funnier than they were but there's no denying that as a whole, the movie was funny. DeNiro and Ben Stiller were absolutely flawless working with eachother and they had a lot of comedic charm. I do wish that it focused more on the laughs than the sitcomish drama. It wasn't perfect but Meet the Parents deals with issues in a hilarious and equally energetic way.
Very funny movie about a guy who meets his girlfriend's parents for the first time. Her dad is suspicious of him. Love Robert's character. Owen is great as the ex-boyfriend. Feel sorry for Ben, should have gone home earlier!
