My Review:

It’s worth it to go see Monster in Law just to see Jane Fonda back in action again. This girl can chew scenery with the best of them! And she certainly has fun as the title character in this movie. Jennifer Lopez is her future daughter-in-law/victim. The character is a little too saccharin to be believable – it’s like this girl can do no wrong, she’s perfect in every way, so why would a mom object? But it’s fun watching them tangle with each other. Michael Vartan is pretty much an after thought, a pretty face – it’s really the woman’s movie this time. And Wanda Sykes is excellent as Fonda’s assistant – she’s sassy and smart, an excellent foil for her boss. Requisite happy ending, and a sigh of relief at the end. One big happy family!
