MEET THE PAR­ENTS

8.30PM, SEVEN M. 2000. An ac­ci­dent prone male nurse played by Ben Stiller doesn’t hit it off with his sus­pi­cious fa­ther in law, played by Robert De Niro. De Niro steals this slap­stick com­edy while Stiller stum­bles from one dis­as­ter to another try­ing to im­press him. In a way it is just an ex­tended sit­com, but sev­eral set pieces are hys­ter­i­cal. Hi­lar­i­ous over­all.
