Meet the Parents

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge
"Show me a man who's gentle and kind, and I'll show you a loser," sings a lush male choir at the start of versatile composer Randy Newman's soundtrack to Meet the Parents. In this case, the loser is Greg Focker Ben Stiller, whose first meeting with his fianc&eacutee's parents leads to comic disaster when his potential father-in-law Robert DeNiro takes an immediate disliking to him. Unsurprisingly, Newman focuses on the hapless Focker: On his barbed solo albums, Newman loves to revel in a character's inadequacies, and in this case, Focker is "A Fool in Love." The songs on Meet the Parents have roots in New Orleans. Newman faithfully covers Fats Domino's "Poor Me" and...

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge
"Show me a man who's gentle and kind, and I'll show you a loser," sings a lush male choir at the start of versatile composer Randy Newman's soundtrack to Meet the Parents. In this case, the loser is Greg Focker Ben Stiller, whose first meeting with his fianc&eacutee's parents leads to comic disaster when his potential father-in-law Robert DeNiro takes an immediate disliking to him. Unsurprisingly, Newman focuses on the hapless Focker: On his barbed solo albums, Newman loves to revel in a character's inadequacies, and in this case, Focker is "A Fool in Love." The songs on Meet the Parents have roots in New Orleans. Newman faithfully covers Fats Domino's "Poor Me" and creates a bluesy two-step for "I Got My Mojo Workin'" rest assured, his mojo lets him down: It "just won't work on you". Bobby Womack's great "I'm Your Puppet" and New Orleans classics from the lively Lee Dorsey "Ya-Ya" and Dr. John "Big Chief" conclude the album. In between the mojos and ya-ya's, Newman's orchestral themes abandon the regional flavors for spacious dialogues between strings and muted horns and the occasional choir. One might wish for more of Newman's poisoned-pen lyrics, but nevertheless, it's hard to resist Meet the Parents' tales of a loser in love.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The original soundtrack to Jay Roach's Meet the Parents features an enjoyable mix of pop songs and Randy Newman's original score. Newman also contributes covers of Fats Domino's "Poor Me" and "I Got My Mojo Workin'" along with a new song, "A Fool in Love." Bobby Womack's "I'm Your Puppet," Lee Dorsey's "Ya Ya," and Dr. John's "Big Chief" round out the album's soulful pop selections. Newman's whimsical score includes pieces with titles like "Could You Milk Me?" and "Wrong Cat," which complement Roach's antic directing style nicely.
