As good as the acting is, the script suffers from excessive overkill. The scene where the champagne cork pops and tips over the urn containing Jack's mothers remains is way too ridiculous. The scene where Greg is on the roof pursuing Trixie is also too off the wall for my tastes. After that point its a wonder that Greg and Jack are even talking.
Don't get me wrong, there are some funny remarks and moments. I even appreciate the cheap humor on Greg Focker's last name. However, Meet The Parents beats the same theme to death midway thru the movie that whereas the humor has some moments, the headaches depicting Greg Focker's trials and tribulations emerge as well.
