Monster in Law- Complete Garbage Review

All i have to say is why did they give Jennifer the part of Selena....If they didnt, we wouldnt have to endur her painful acting career.

This movie was completely garbage and i was literally dragged to watch this movie(Kind of like breaking my nails scrapping the floor dragging)

It was horrible with a capital H


every person in the theater were females or other wise old people.

Some people even walked out of the movie. I thought maybe the movie can get saved with a glimpse of her butt.... nothing...

0-4 stars.

i cant believe it had the most money this weekend

Misleading subject header. I was expecting your review to be complete garbage, but it wasn't too bad.

I hope you got laid in exchange for having to see this.

And the problem with that is what? Almost every person who went to see "XXX: State of the Union" was a teenage boy. Big fucking deal.

As you discovered, movies are made to appeal to various demographics. God forbid someone would make a movie that isn't aimed at a 16-year-old videogame addict.

Well.. I thought the trailers were well made, my interest was raised for a good comedy, and I liked it...not surprising it was number one. I expect good good box office for this.

I was there on Mother's Day with mostly women, and they were mostly laughing throughout the entire movie. Of all the J-Lo movies (Most of which I have not seen), the thing was pretty funny. I may be biased because I love Jane Fonda and Wanda Sykes, but those two were hilarious for the most part.

This movie isn't aimed at guys, especially ones who take their mum on Mother's day, but I had a pretty decent time at my first J-Lo flick in theatres.

***1/2 of **** (based on ridiculous J-Lo comedy scale)

lighten up people

I didn't find the movie to be all that bad. It had some funny moments. My wife loved it which I kind of expected since she loves all those cheesy chick flicks which is exactly what this was. I think the movie achieved what target audience it was after.
