J-Lo, artsy and aimless with her sundress over pants (#RespectTo90sFashion), falls into Michael Vartan's Michael Vartanian gaze and must contend with her new ridiculously heinous mother-in-law. So bland, and insultingly unfunny. Bright spot was seeing Adam Scott in an early film role as the gay best friend, styled like a Y2K ninth grader with an oversized polo shirt and shaggy hair.

This movie is Hilarious! A must-see but anything starring J-Lo is great!

Pretty good as far as chick flicks go. Jane Fonda and Wanda Sykes are a hoot.

The chemistry between the three is really good. Love Jennifer and Jane and there antics.

I loved this movie. Jennifer was so funny. Loved the whole putting the pills in Jane's food.

Jane Fonda, Wanda Sykes and ELAINE STRITCH (Adam Scott?) are all too good for this yet steal every scene you could possibly imagine.

How frustrating it is that Jane Fonda would pick Monster-in-Law as her first movie after being on hiatus. This is a dumb, unfunny, unoriginal turkey. It's like one of those sitcoms that only lasted 3 episodes before being taken off the network. Michael Vartan is particularly terrible.

J-Lo often gets a bad wrap for her acting - and true, she's not the greatest actor in the world - but occasionally I do find her charming.

It seemed as though the rest of the cast carried an over-acting, weathered Jane Fonda through the plot - which worked in the end, had some funny moments. Fonda's melodramatic performance was cringe worthy though at times.

Not a bad film.

What a terrific lame plot...

Jane Fonda came out of retirement for this? It plays like a bland, toothless sitcom. On the bright side, nothing in it makes you wince. It's way too boring for that.
½ October 20, 2014
This is pretty much paint by number routine romantic comedy that showcases a particularly bad performance by Jennifer Lopez. The only thing worthwhile seeing in here are fine architectural landmarks of LA, such as the Neff and Ross houses in Pasadena.

Much Funnier than all these Sanctimonious yuppies would say!!

Tellement film de filles qu'il m'arrivait de giggler comme une ptite fille avec ces merveilleuses répliques. Bref, un bon petit film de cerveau à off.

Vartan disserved better. An unfunny mess with a few bright spots
½ May 28, 2014
Just a weak and very flat comedy that offers nothing anything original or funny
April 10, 2014
Shallow story and poorly-written script. No laughter is to happen but more yawns. Very average performances from actors and nothing interesting to watch for.

This movie isn't bad - as a matter of fact Fonda & Sykes have good performances - just note it's predictable and will require you to set low standards to enjoy it.
