Right-e-o!

Monster-in-Law!

Let's think...

It has Jennifer Lopez as the bride to be and Jane Fonda as the mother in law from HELL.
This actually works out nicer than expected, with a lot of acidic remarks and even more corrosive actions.
As for the acting, the director should've gone for a bit less over-acting, because at times it becomes a bit too clowney for my taste.

The story's about Charlie (Lopez) and Kevin (some dude) meeting each other and falling deeply in love. Kevin's mother hates Charlie from the very moment she meets her, thinking Charlie's not good enough for Kevin.
From this point, mom turns into a Monster-in-Law (hence the title Wink)
In the end, everything turns out awesomely and everybody lives a long, happy life.

This is not the best movie to watch when you're all set for a high-quality romantic drama, but if you're in the mood for something a bit lighter with a lot of (corny) humour, be sure to take this movie into consideration.
It's not among the best in the romantic comedy genre, in fact, I'd recommend Love Actually, Bridget Jones or even Notting Hill any day. It's still worth the watch when you've watched all other movies already though.

A not so staggering, but fair enough rating: 6,9/10.
