User Reviews

Brilliant!
1 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Take Meet The Parents, turn it into a series, add a obsessed lover, add more humour and a dog in cement mixer and what do you get? You get one of the funniest series ever. I only happen to come across the series when i was just sorting my work out and the t.v was running. After i was just hooked on watching it.

It is terrific stuff! Series like these should be made more often though not out and out copies.

Ben Miller is top-class as groom-to-be. Ben Stiller had his moments in Meet The Parents but Miller easily can give him a run for his money. Top Stuff.

My grief that i missed the first episode of it. However, this is still without doubt a much watch for any comedy lover.
