At the time of writing, Monster in Law had still not been released in Australia - but it seems to look very promising!
A comedy romance, Jennifer Lopez stars at "Charlie" Cantilini - a woman who has just found the man of her dreams after many years of being unlucky in love. Dr Kevin Fields (Vartan) is wonderful, but his mother is overbearing and controlling - a real Monster-in-Law!
Viola (played by Jane Fonda - who I am certain will fit the role perfectly!) has lost her job as a news anchor. Now the only control she has in life is her son. She figures that if she can be the world's worst Mother In Law, she can break the couple up and continue to the be the subject of her son's affection. Finally Charlie fights back - and apparently, that's when the fun really begins.
I love a romantic comedy and this one does seem like it will be a good one, with some big names - I will definitely be seeing it!
