Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Monster-in-Law is appalling misfire of a comedy - a motion picture that takes a situation ripe for the blackest vein of satire and reduces it to a puerile and edgeless pile of goo.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor I tried to transfer into Fan Mode, enjoying their presence while ignoring the movie. I did not succeed. My reveries were interrupted by bulletins from my conscious mind, which hated the movie.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Fonda tries to make the best of the kind of part that's been going to Candice Bergen lately (Miss Congeniality, Sweet Home Alabama). But her heart isn't in it. Lopez's performance is a notch less wooden than her trance-like portrayal in Shall We Dance or her laughably preposterous tough gal in Gigli. But that doesn't make the movie worth watching — even if you're monstrously bored.
