Another great thing about "Meet the Parents" is the chemistry that De Niro and Stiller are able to conjure up and they really nailed their roles perfectly. Greg is as nervous around Jack, as I'm sure Stiller was as nervous working with De Niro. De Niro seemed like he was just having a lot of fun and maybe that was the secret to the success of De Niro in this film. He just went out there and let loose and knew that there wasn't going to be any seriousness and he was just gonna' be able to have some fun and I think it shows. As far as Stiller goes, I actually used to really dislike the guy for what seems like no reason at all, in retrospect. Today I really like the guy and think that it's a shame that he's gotten stuck with the stinkers of films he's been in. In my view, "Meet the Parents" is the shining achievement in acting for Stiller and probably his greatest comedy venture.
