Plot Summary
Charlotte (Jennifer Lopez) is smitten when she meets Dr. Kevin Fields (Michael Vartan). So when Kevin pops the question after they start dating, Charlotte happily accepts. But she soon realizes that Kevin's mom, Viola (Jane Fonda), is not quite thrilled to have a new family member. Viola, a newscaster, has just lost her job and is feeling rather attached to Kevin, so she regards Charlotte as her new competition -- and will apparently do anything to make her son call off the wedding.

    This movie, makes every bride-to-be think about the family she has to "marry" into; Jane Fonda(Coming Home fame),and Jennifer Lopez(brilliant star of Selena),match wits together."Charlie" finally meets the great man of her dreams and is set to marry him.The only trouble is,her beau's mother.Violet is a widow, and does anything to stir up trouble for her "precious" son.It is comical and hilarious, as the two ladies go head-to-head in the matrimonial "war of wits".Violet gets vicious and hateful, in her "reign" of iron.She suddenly has a change of heart ,when someone teaches her a few things about romance. I love Violet's mother-in-law,who is brilliant at the end of the film.She makes Violet learn a hard "lesson" about love.I applaud Fonda and Lopez and say Bravo, for their sweet performances here !
