It was Jane Fonda's return to acting. What's not to like?

Went to the theatre to watch this movie in 2005 when if first came out because it was the luminous and extraordinary Jane Fonda's return to acting after her "retirement" in 1991. How could you not? She delivers the goods in this tour-de-force comedic turn and practically chews up the set pieces in the process. Jennifer Lopez does her best, and she's very likable, but she's no Jane Fonda. Still, you have to give her props for taking this role opposite a legend. As for Michael Vartin: was he in the movie? It hardly matters. With La Fonda and La Lopez on screen as the stars, supported by La Sykes, no one else in the cast mattered. The WOMEN carry this film as they should.

Jennifer Lopez, Wanda Sykes and Jane Fonda are HILARIOUS!
Verified purchase
I can't watch this movie often enough. The comedic chemistry between Jennifer Lopez and the iconic Jane Fonda leaves me on the floor laughing through the entire movie. Lopez is a "temp" dog walker, fashion designer, caterer, etc. She falls head-over-heels for a cardiologist who keeps bumping into her.
After they start dating, enter Jane Fonda, his mother, and her personal assistant played by Wanda Sykes. No woman is good enough for Fonda's son and every possible scheme is contrived to destroy the relationship.
This movie is just good fun with hilarious antics throughout. I highly recommend this movie for lots of great laughs from a stellar cast as well as a feel-good ending.

An opportunity missed.

Poor writing.

I very much enjoyed seeing Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda in the same movie. Personally Jane never impressed me when she was young, but she has aged exceptionally well. I've never seen her look better than in a few of the scenes in this movie. Her strength as a mature woman is undeniable.

Jennifer Lopez is an amazing, multi-talented woman and her character in this movie reflected some of that. Basically a very upbeat and energetic person with a lot of inner strength and integrity.

The problem — Jane's character is so over done. Not even close to realistic. Marie in Everybody Loves Raymond was a believable Monster-in Law. Viola in this movie was just crazy and unstable.

The male lead was just vanilla and that would have been OK if Jane's character was more realistic.

GREAT MOVIE!!! I’ve watched this movie so many times, one of my fav chick flicks. Absolutely LOVE Jane Fonda & Wanda Sykes in these roles, SO funny - they were my fav! One of J.Lo’s best movies in my opinion. Completely relate to this movie SO much except I didn’t get the happy ending J.Lo did.

Hysterically funny movie!
Verified purchase
OMG. If you have not seen this movie you need to. This movie is hysterical and so funny to watch. Jlo and Jane fonda knock the plot right out of the park. If you have problems with in laws this movie will keep you on your toes. However, dont resort to the revengeful ways Jane fonda does. I would say Jlo who plays charlie does excellent in handling her mother in law, but has a hard time getting there and has to constantly compete with her childish controlling ways of her son. It would make enough for any bride to be to become a runaway bride. But to get to the ending you will just have to watch this movie.

It’s Jane Fonda, J. Lo, Michael Vartan, and Wanda Sykes. Watch it with your eyes so you can laugh.
Why is it that I have never enjoyed her music and she’s never appealed to me as a person, but her movies are the best? I feel like acting is supposed to be her side gig and it’s way better than her original claim to fame.

Movie is great thats why I wanted to rent to re watch it again. The price though for you to be able to watch once is just not worth it. You should be able to buy these old movies for $2-5 so for the price it's only getting 3 stars.
