This is definitely one of my favorites! Very funny, Very well done. was laughing throughout the movie..especially the "family matter" backyard boxing! Hilllarious! Other favorite scenes include, Jennifers family discussion about the possibility of her husband being GAY!, " Ecxuse me!, My husband is not Gay" she exclaimes!. "You know he does wear that cologne" her Dad says. Great scene. Also... the Limo ride with the butler... "its a new day my man", "Today is the first day of my new life" "how do I look?"
And... as he exclaims to Cameron Diaz "Maybe he loves you because your young blonde and beautiful and he's got one foot in the grave!" as he describes "grandpa".
