Monster-in-Law (Dbl DVD)

The love life of professional dog walker Charlotte "Charlie" Honeywell (international superstar Jennifer Lopez - The Wedding Planner, Maid in Manhattan) consists of an endless string of disastrous blind dates . . . until she meets the perfect guy, Kevin (Michael Vartan - "Alias"). Her dream man seems too good to be true, especially when he proposes marriage. Engaged to marry Kevin, Charlie has second thoughts after meeting his overbearing mother (two-time Academy Award winner Jane Fonda - Klute), who thinks no girl is good enough for her Kevin, and especially not Charlie. With her future mother-in-law aiming to destroy the relationship and Charlie's dream of a perfect wedding, can the would-be bride tame her merciless future Monster-In-Law?

I have read many reviews and cant believe this is the same movie I saw!!!! I LOVED the movie and cant wait to get it on DVD. I took all my girls ages 16 to 25 and we all laughed so hard.I took mu husband the week later and he enjoyed it and laughed. JANE FONDA was so funny and I was so glad to see her back in a movie. It's a movie people-some people think the world had to move to make it great. And what made it even funnier is as we were watching it was we all realized she's MY mother in law, to the tee. Rent it- buy it. IT IS FUNNY!

Great from start to finish. The story fallows Charlie (Jennifer Lopez)one day, she meets Kevin (Michael Vartan), a doctor, and they quickly fall in love. Kevin's Mom is Viola Fields (Jane Fonda), a successful Barbara Walters-like network news anchor, with problems of her own. Kevin brings Charlie to his mother's estate to meet her. Kevin decides to propose, in front of his mother. Viola clearly disapproves and sets about breaking them up. As she and Ruby (Wanda Sykes), her assistant, set a series of events in motion, Charlie gradually begins to realize what she is working against and fights back. The acting is great all the characors do great jobs. Theres Jennifer Lopez who is innocent and then fights back and it's hallarious when she fights back. Then theres Jane Fonda who is perfect as the mother in law from hell. Wonda Sykes dose a great supporting role. the movie has reat one liners that will elave you laughing. The movie is predictable but it's still lots of fun froms tart to finish.

"Monster-In-Law" is not the train wreck I was expecting, but it could've been so much more.

Charlie (Jennifer Lopez) works a series of temp jobs and enjoys everything she does, making ends meet. It makes life interesting. One day, she meets Kevin (Michael Vartan), a doctor, and they quickly fall in love. Kevin's Mom is Viola Fields (Jane Fonda), a successful Barbara Walters-like network news anchor, with problems of her own. Kevin brings Charlie to his mother's estate to meet her. Kevin decides to propose, in front of his mother. Viola clearly disapproves and sets about breaking them up. As she and Ruby (Wanda Sykes), her assistant, set a series of events in motion, Charlie gradually begins to realize what she is working against and fights back.

"Monster-In-Law", directed by Robert Luketic ("Legally Blond", "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!"), frequently veers into sitcom territory.

The acting is very broad and cartoonish. At one point, Charlie, having pulled one off on Viola, shakes her head and sniggers, much like a Hanna Barbera cartoon character. Lopez's character is all over the place. At one moment, she appears to be normal and caring and sympathetic, the other, she is acting like Peg Bundy from "Married with Children". Fonda, returning to feature films after 15 years, is clearly having fun chewing the scenery. And it is fun to watch her. But she is so over the top and Lopez is over the top only part of the time, that it seems like a bad sitcom. Wanda Sykes is very funny as Ruby. Her natural allegiance is with Viola, someone she has worked with for years, maybe decades, but she isn't beyond dressing down her boss, pointing out the problems with her theories.

This movie isn't as bad as a lot of reviewers make it out to be. In a sea of unrelenting bad box office movies, this film at least keeps it's head above water. For Jennifer Lopez fans, there is enough sweetness factor to keep them happy. The plot is familiar and formulamatic, yet light and often funny. Charlie (Lopez) has lead a life of many part time jobs and is getting along just fine till she has a chance meeting with Dr. Kevin Fields (played a bit woodenly by Alias' Michael Vartan)and falls in love. Things couldn't be better until Kevin arranges for Charlie to meet his mother, Viola Fields (Fonda)a talk show host put out to pasture by her network and recently released after a break down from a hospital who has nothing left in life but making her son's prespective dates miserable. Kevin chooses to ask Charlie to marry him in front tof his mother and the hijinks begin. Viola has other plans and is hell bent to break them up. But as misery loves company, Charlie decides to fight back. Throw in Wanda Sykes as Viola's personal assistant who wants no part in this struggle and this makes for some very comical moments. Sykes is great in her small role but really chews on the scenery and makes the most of a role written far to small for this large comedic talent. The movie is largely entertaining but you may want to rent it before actually making the purchase. Worth a viewing at least.

I loved this movie. Sure it is predictable, but it was funny and each time I see Jennifer Lopez in a movie, I'm not disappointed. While she'll never win an Oscar, she can make you laugh. She's pretty and she has good timing. Jane Fonda makes a departure from her previous efforts. She's also not bad, but for an actress of her calibre, maybe it was a little low for her (whilst also fitting the role pretty well). As for Michael Vartan ... well he's just hot. Really nice looking and you kind of felt sorry for him to have lived with his mum all his kid life.

Go and see this with an open mind and you'll like it. Especially if you love romantic comedies. This is funny and a general feel good movie you'll want to watch again and again.
