- the dinner scene, with racist jokes
- the back massage
- sharing the bed
- and the multi-cultural songs playing in the car
But then the film starts to falter very fast with all the usual bonding and schmaltzy stuff, and predictably it all ends happily. It seems that the director knew what to do with all the race jokes and the awkward 'dad meeting' but ran out of ideas half way through.
The leads are very good especially Mac, who has all the best lines and steals the show from any one else. Ashton Kuetcher has a good haircut and looks like a nice clean cut male, not the long haired goof-ball I usually see. It's just that this movie was done so much better in 2000 with 'Meet The Parents' and will be forever compared to this.
Not a bad movie by all means. It's just a case of 'been there, seen that'.
