It’s time for another entry for the Thursday Movie Picks series by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s topic is Meet the Parents. So let’s take a look at my choices!
The first funny “meet the parents” scene I thought of is when Shrek meets Fiona’s parents for the frist time. I guess a huge green ogre wasn’t exactly what they had expected for a son-in-law.
Meet the Parents:
Of course the obvious choice here is the film Meet the Parents. Ben Stiller. Robert DeNiro. Lots of weird and embarrassing moments. Not my favorite film, but definitely perfect for the topic!
Back to the Future:
This features definitely one of the most iconic meet the parents (and grand-parents) moments in film history. Marty McFly travels through time and runs into his teen-aged mom and dad! Lots of funny and weird moments ahead with such a set-up.
Catch me if you Can:
Catch me if you Can is probably not the first thing you think of for this topic. But there is a really cute scene when Frank Abagnale Jr. (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) falls in love with a nurse at a hospital and gets to meet her parents. I generally love this film, but this scene is one of my favorites!
Which films would you pick for this week’s topic? Let me know in the comments!
