Meet the Parents: Ultimate Special Edition

Male nurse Gaylord “Greg” Focker (Ben Stiller) has decided to propose to his long-time girlfriend Pam Bynes (Teri Polo). The pair decide to announce their engagement at Pam’s sister’s wedding, which will also give Greg the opportunity to formally ask Pam’s father Jack (Robert De Niro) for permission to marry Pam. Jack is already an overprotective father, and coupled with his former role at the CIA he proves to be a far a far bigger pushover than Greg was expecting. Needless to say things do not go well for Greg with the weekend turning into quite the comedy of errors.

Ben Stiller has made a career out of playing the tightly wound control freak, and Greg Focker is no different than any of the characters he has been playing since There’s Something About Mary, as such his performance has a very been there done that feel to it (in keeping with the rest of the film). Legend of the screen Robert De Niro does well in the role of Jack, drawing on many of his former film roles for laughs, though, like Stiller, the character of Jack is no great stretch for him. There is no denying that the cast, including support from Owen Wilson and Blythe Danner, are very good, it is just that the script does not give them much to work with. While it does posses some amusing moments – cat milking one of the big ones – Meet the Parents never fully rises above being a formulaic comedy. So predictable is it that it readily sets itself up for the inevitable (and far funnier) sequel Meet The Fockers.

Special features on this Special Edition include all new outtakes, a profile on director Jay roach, a De Niro Unplugged featurette, deleted scenes, an audio commentary by Jay Roach and Editor Jon Poll and much more.
