Not terrible but not great. Typical run-of-the-mill RomCom although havent seen Jane Fonda in anything for ages, which is part of the reason I selected it. A couple of funy moments, but nothing special.
We found this very good and entertaining. It was good to see that the future daughter-in-law could hold her own. Both Jane Fonda and Jo Lo, were very good.
Great chick flick. Very funny and easy movie to watch. Great movie for a Friday night relaxation with a glass of wine
Great story, full of laughter and tears...well not so many tears but lots of laughter. Jane Fonda still looks sizzling hot in this film, the hottest Monster In Law ever and a replica of many real M_I_L's out there, all trying to take down the new daughter in law.
Really enjoyed this movie. Tried to anticipate the next move by both parties. Had many giggles throughout.
Good acting, ordinary story
for those that like their comedies light with a side order of boredom!
Cheesy ending and totally smaltzy pairing up of the two lead characters!
Predictable and half baked ending!
Not totally awful but NOT great! just BARELY watchable!
Monster in Law: Lived up to expectations. Absolutely loved it. Recommended.

an alright movie..
has its funny bits and borings bits..
worth watching just the once..
A light hearted and entertaining film.
I love this movie and have watched it numerous amounts of times, not only do you get a perve through the movie at Michael Varton - what a honey - but you get to see how disfunctional a family can be - exactly like yours or the same situation as the man you are trying to win over that is just too close to his mother.
I am a jenifer lopez fan and love watching her in her movies as she grew up in the bronxs which is a poverty area in american - and it shows in her films - she is not the stuck up silver spoon in the mouth actress. And Jane Fonda who can knock a screen idol as she is great and funny in all parts of the movie.
Watch it - you will love it.
Monster-In Law! Excellent, thought it was hilarious! Disc itself came in excellent condition, very very happy! will be definetly upgrading my subscription! thanks a bunch!
Good but not great, had some funny moments but was expecting more .... good viewing for a girls night in...
I've seen J Lo in far more convincing roles - in this film nothing worked for me. I have to admit, my rating is based on the first 15 minutes, as I was unable to watch any further. The cast appeared plastic, the acting wooden, and the scenes and plot contrived. The characters were irritating, not endearing, and nothing even vaguely amusing occurred. Maybe braver souls could endure it longer, and perhaps it improves later on in the film.
Much more amusing than I expected - predictable etc but a pleasant enough was to while away an hour or two.
Not what I was suspecting but it is so funny...Jane Fonda is great! Not married but could imagine this might be close to home for quite a few ppl.
Loved Jane Fonda in this movie! She was hilarious and was the shining light in this movie.
A very funny film, Jane Fonda- I think she looks even better as she gets older
Great movie, hilarious, even my husband laughed. Love Michael Vartan, hes hot.
An amusing and entertaining movie....I think most people could appreciate this one :-)
This movie is kinda boring - but ok if you don't want to think and you are not expecting to be in stitches.
Let's hope we all look like J'lo in our 30s and Jane Fonda in our 50s!
A very funny, romantic, comedy. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie & recommend it to anyone who likes JLO
not as gd as expected-J Lo & J Fonda dontlive up to expections..JLo should stick to singing & JF should retire...
Very funny, a bit predictable but some very funny scenes between the down-to-earth fiance and the deranged mother.
Typical J-LO story and role... finding mr right, getting married and soppy story totally predictable!!!!Chick flick only. However, Jane Fonda brought some fun to the movie. its worth watching if you like J LO.
Not bad but it won't go down in history as a great movie.
Harmless fun. I enjoyed watching with brain switched off!
Very funny. J Lo can actually act!! Enjoyed quite a lot.
Very funny-laughed out loud-even the second time!
This movie wasn't as funny as I was expecting it to be though it did have some great moments.
Great movie..Highly recommend to eveyone
An hilarious production with Jane Fonda at her most vicious and cutting in her comedic skills. A lot of fun with some laugh out loud moments.
Well Jane Fonda still has 'it'! A fun role for her, i'm sure. J Lo likes wedding movies it seems - she is able to play the innocent, hurt, lost-in-love well! A great show-down between JLo and JFo!
good night in for a girls night thoroughly enjoyed this movie
I turned it off and went to bed because it bored me. The next day I watched where I left off to see if it got any better, and it did ...barely. I think I laughed out loud once.
I really enjoyed it but I do love Michael Vartan of Alias fame... he's hot! Easy to watch film. Jane Fonda is very good. Not one for the boys...
light and easy watching movie some funny parts
What a great movie,Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda in a romantic comedy with lots of twists and turns and plenty of laughs.Jane's sidekick Wanda breaks me up with her one liners.Well worth a look.
The plot proceeds in an expected manner, but Jane Fonda and Wanda Sykes give their usual star quality to the film.
if you enjoyed meet the parents you will enjoy this movie not as funny but a very entertaining movie
Predictable and very slow to start. Found it difficult to watch from start to finish and watched over a few days, bits and pieces at a time. Hubby didn't even watch after first 5 minutes.
I'm not a "J-Lo" fan and flinched at the idea of viewing this movie, but the lure of seeing Jane Fonda back on flim after her many years of being "aerobic queen" had me sit back in the arm chair ready for anything. I am so glad I did too! Jane Fonda did an award winning performance as the gawd awful mother-in-law. Funny bone material that had me laughing with evil mirth. Jane has aged beautifully and has a comic flair never seen before. She outshines all but Ruby who gives her own slant on being the man-friday with attitude. Ignore J-Lo, it could have been any one of a dozen to fill that role and still disappear into the dark.
A great laugh, thoroughly enjoyable.
really funny. whole family enjoyed!
excellent movie for young and old
Thought this was rubbish. Even Jane Fonda couldnt help it. Really was hard to watch to the end.
A great movie, a great laugh and yes maybe a little bit of reality .....! for some.
Its mainly for Jane Fonda, not J.Lo. And the male-lead, I'm sure he's gay
Liked all Jennifer Lopaz movies and a bit of a bonus with Jane Fonda as future mother-in-law. Both ladies score a few wins with the odd laugh and finally they agree on a draw, about the same highlight as seeing Venus Beach.
great movie light hearted
I enjoyed it and would watch it again.
Gets a bit repetive, predictable and boring. Not a great story line.
I'm not really into Romance movies but this is pretty good. Totally funny and great just to see Jane Fonda in action
not great, but very watchable
I laughed twice in the entire movie ... maybe it's not meant to be a comedy!
Jennifer Lopez standard romantic comedy. Jane Fonda as the future mother in law steals the show and is the draw card for this movie. This is a good chick flick for those nights with the girls or a lazy stay at home night.
Iloved this movie. My husband loved it. It is so funny. I didn't realise that J.LOW and Jane Fonda could be that funny. The chemistry between these two great actresses, was amazing.They made this movie,(just like Jonny Dep made, "Pirates of the Carribean". Without him, that movie would have been a total flop, but he made it"come alive")!A great story line, I think that most of us could relate to, and have just one great long laugh, through out the entire movie. Great producer, which, also made this a great, funny story.Simply, "Brilliant"!!!!
Very funny, Jane Fonda plays a fantastic part and makes it worth watching.
Liked Jane in a role that now suits her age; thought J Lo was not up to her class.
A very average and over rated movie. Lots of overacting by Jane Fonda and Jennifer Lopez is only there for her good looks. In my opinion Wanda Sykes acting overshadowed everybody else. She was great!
Barely ok. Jane Fonda makes the film watchable!
Average, light, typical J-Lo fare...pleasant enough to pass the time but not outstanding. Watch this if you have no other options for the afternoon.
Not quite as funny as i thought it would be...
One of J Lo's better films, but I struggle to understand how this film became US # 1. A very basic plot, predictable outcome, good but not great. Light entertainment as it can be expected.
Not exactly award winning but still not as bad as I was expecting.
At the time, watchable for star-power alone, but upon reflection really pretty woeful. The fist-i-cuff scenes between Jane Fonda and Jennifer Lopez's characters were really hard to watch, I just didn't find much amusing, let alone laugh-out-aloud. Ok, it's a black comedy and the girls were really camping it up, but it didn't work for me. An odd choice for Jane Fonda's re-emergence too. Lopez and Vartan were adequate, but as to the latter's character: I would have given the ring back!
Good Movie for couples.
Had a good laugh.
I would rate it a 2 1/2
