While I was entering the theater yesterday for this special Preview of "Monster In Law", I noticed that about 90% of the attendees were female. So I thought to myself, "Jennifer Lopez, Jane Fonda and Wanda Sykes? I am not sure how entertaining this is going to be. With some of Lopez's most recent films, there had been no entertainment at all. And Fonda, when was the last time we saw her in a movie?"
The movie was entertaining and hilarious at times. Fonda portrays her role perfectly and Lopez adds some shine to the movie. Wanda Sykes provides comic relief as was excellent.
It would be a good movie to go see with all your girlfriends or for you to take a date to.
