Nick M (de) wrote: A hilarious take on the relatable, always awkward visit to meet the parents of the one you love; De Niro and Stiller share excellent chemistry with embarrassing, cringe-inducing humor that makes one feel as uncomfortable as Greg "Gaylord" Focker feels; The delivery of the humor in the film works with a subtle, toned down directorial approach from Jay Roach ("Austin Powers" franchise); Clever writing and fine performances all around. 3.5/5

Adam M (au) wrote: Morgan Freeman's performance IS the movie; the rest is a supporting cast trying to work themes a rewrite by James Toback would have fully realized ... and we would be locked into Reeve's dilemma more than just as our ticket to meeting Fast Black ... Points for Anna Horsford and Kathy Baker (who makes a foul shot as the white Whore With the Heart of Gold), and for the one-man theatre of Andre Gregory.
Ed Fucking H (gb) wrote: A furious faux documentary made in 1971, that really encapsulates the social unrest and animosties from both sides of the fence of that era. The deal is political prisoners are given a choice between prison terms of various length or three days in punishment park, where they are to play a sort of capture the flag game. This game is also to serve as a training ground for police, national guard and military personel. The results are very violent, the performances impassioned and the overall effect unsettling. Unlike anything I've ever seen, and put simply probably the angriest film I've ever seen. Strongly Recommended.
