MONSTER IN LAW (article first published : 2008-08-12)

M-Net will screen the romantic comedy Monster In Law on August 30 at 20h30. Directed by Robert Luketic in 2005, it stars Jennifer Lopez, Jane Fonda, Michael Vartan, Wanda Sykes.

After a 15 year absence from acting, the inimitable Jane Fonda makes her comeback in this comedy, playing the mother-in-law from hell. Viola is a smart and charming woman, a once famous TV talk show host who lost the plot when someone younger and prettier landed her job.

After a spell in therapy, she seems cured - until she learns that her beloved son, surgeon Kevin, has fallen in love with a lowly temp called Charlie. Charlie is sweet and kind and clearly crazy about Kevin, but this is not good enough for Viola, who, with the help of her bossy assistant Ruby, tries to sabotage the romance any way she can. But Viola soon discovers that beneath Charlie's sweet exterior is a woman of steel - who can fight just as dirty. Who will win this battle of wills?
