Lightweight comedy about a bride-to-be (Jennifer Lopez) who locks horns with her prospective mother-in-law (played intentionally over-the-top by Jane Fonda) after finding out that the latter is trying to derail her upcoming wedding to the woman's doctor-son (Michael Vartan). Directed by Robert Luketic, the film marks the first acting appearance by Fonda in 15 years, but apart from Fonda and a witty turn by Wanda Sykes as her sassy assistant, the bland acting, combined with a weak script and, at times, mean-spirited humor, makes Fonda's return trip hardly worth the wait. Sexual situations and humor, including several crude gestures, some comic violence, and sporadic crass language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
