Director: Robert Luketic
Starring: Jennifer Lopez, Michael Vartan, Jane Fonda, Wanda Sykes

Unlucky in love, beautiful Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Cantilini (Jennifer Lopez) has finally met the man of her dreams, Dr. Kevin Fields (Michael Vartan). There’s just one problem - his mother!

Overbearing and controlling, not to mention volatile, Viola Fields (Jane Fonda) has recently been canned from her job as a star news anchor.

Fearing she will lose her son’s affections as she has her career, Viola decides to break up the happy couple by becoming the world’s worst mother-in-law. Helping her with her crazy schemes is Viola’s long-time assistant, Ruby (Wanda Sykes).

The gloves come off when Charlie finally decides to fight back and it looks like Viola has finally met her match.

Scheduled for a mid-summer 2005 release, Monster-in-Law is directed by Legally Blonde’s Robert Luketic and marks Fonda’s return to the big screen after a 14-year absence.
