Storyline

Peter Silverblatt is a liberal writer from New York City working in Los Angeles where he meets and falls for his dream girl and inspiration to write: a Southern belle named Melanie Branson. But Melanie inadvertently opens a Pandora's box when she invites Peter to her hometown in Georgia to meet her conservative, but highly eccentric and dysfunctional family who include her two exasperating brothers Larry, and Dink, and her cranky, meddling father who'll do anything to break up the happy union between Peter and Melanie... anything includes trying to set Peter up with the local town tramp Laurel Lee.

Kookie, off kilter, fun little unabashed romp??
5 November 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Meeting Daddy" tells of a young California couple who visit the female half's somewhat backward clan in Georgia where they encounter a menagerie of quirky off-beat characters including her daddy (L. Bridges). If you are into fun little romantic comedy romps and have a sense of appreciation for the irreverent and inane, you'll probably enjoy "Meeting Daddy". If not, you may be terminally bored if not somewhat repulsed. This genre defying little sleeper is a concatenation of old gags laced with a wisp of charm whipped up in a very peculiar sort of mix which will please some and displease others. Lloyd Bridges turns in a fine final performance as the laconic, manipulative, and eerily senile patriarch. A must see for wacky comedy lovers.
