Perhaps three stars is a wee bit stingy, as I have seen this film more than a few times. I grudgingly admit that it makes me giggle in parts but is so frustrating to watch! It becomes a little predictable from the middle of the film onwards, and De Niro's character is so extreme he is unbelievable. Ben Stiller's character as the prospective son-in-law to De Niro's crazy 'Jack' makes me want to take him by the shoulders, shake him vigorously and tell him to 'man up' and stop being ridiculous.
Overall though, it's good clean (ish) family fun, and easy to watch for those nights when you just need some comedy.
