John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
A Jewish male nurse plans to ask his live-in girl friend to marry him. However, he learns that her strict father expects to be asked for his daughter's hand before she can accept. Thus begins the visit from Hell as the two travel to meet Mom and Dad, who turns out to be former CIA with a lie detector in the basement. Coincidentally, a sister also has announced her wedding to a young doctor. Of course everything that can go wrong, does, including the disappearance of Dad's beloved Himalayan cat, Jinxie. Written by

When Greg jumps back in the house from the roof after setting the backyard on fire, his heel obviously breaks the window and it comes crashing down. This would have lead to an early discovery of the culprit had it been pursued. See more »
Greg, nobody's expecting much out of you so if I set you up with the ball, you think you could jump up and spike it?
Yeah. I'd have to be pretty high, but yeah.
I bet you would, Panama Red.

Annoying Characters - Quit watching after 30 minutes
The characters were stereotypical enough that we were annoyed and quit watching the film. How can we empathize with characters that are stereotypes of people we wouldn't associate with in real life? Who cares what happens to them?
Jey: I like DeNiro and he did a good job in this one as Dad, but it was the type of person I'd make a point of avoiding.
Also, the movie made attempts at being funny, but they were not original and the movie tended toward the negative side of situations. This made it real dull and a waste of time.
We gave it a 1.
