Editorial Reviews

Josh Charles (Sports Night) stars as Peter, a neurotic New Yorker who moved to Los Angeles and found his dream girl, a Southern beauty named Melanie (Alexandra Wentworth). When Melanie brings Peter home to Georgia to meet the family, Peter expects a friendly two-day visit. What he gets is a two week nightmare! Lloyd Bridges (in his final screen appearance) stars as Melanie's father, Beau Bridges and Walter Olkewicz costar as Melanie's oddball brothers, and Kristy Swanson is a Southern-Belle-From-Hell determined to seduce Peter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Potential. Poor Execution. October 10, 2008
Format:DVD
I think that writer-director Peter Gould and his fellow filmmakers intended that this 1998 movie should be a comedy, sort of a down South version of MEET THE PARENTS. Unfortunately, though the potential is there for a hilarious romp, neither the script, the direction, nor the actors are very funny.

I'm not saying that the actors aren't good (They are.) or that the film doesn't have other merits (It does.). It's just that the people involved don't appear to have that special gift for doing comedy, thus we're given a straight light drama with several missed opportunities for laughter.

Josh Charles plays a struggling Los Angeles Jewish novelist who travels to Georgia to meet the family of his girl friend (Alexandra Wentworth). These include her ailing, cantankerous, bigoted father (Lloyd Bridges in his final film role) and her brothers, Walter Olkewicz and Beau Bridges.

What was supposed to be a two-day visit with Alexandra's family turns into a two-week nightmare, with Charles finding himself having to virtually baby-sit Bridges for the entire time.

Though he looks shockingly ill, Bridges still manages to steal every scene in which he appears.

Kristy Swanson co-stars. The ending of this film might surprise you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good acting July 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Story line was only so-so. Some good laughs and good acting. I am not a fan of Lloyd Bridges but must admit he did a good job as Daddy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ruined by an ending October 12, 2008
Format:DVD
This movie was a reasonably entertaining comedy up until the last 5 minutes, nothing special but certainly not bad, then came the ending which made no sense and seemed tacked on. I would recommend skipping this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Funny March 1, 2007
Format:DVD
I came across this movie on cable and could not stop watching. It is quirky and crazy. I am from the south so it rang very true to me. Try it.
