In a film career that only dates back to her uncredited debut in 1995’s “Mi Familia My Family”, superstar Jennifer Lopez has worked with many high profile names, including 11 Oscar Winners (including Jack Nicholson, Robin Williams, Jon Voight, Robert Redford) and several former Oscar nominees (including Edward James Olmos, Diane Lane, Ralph Fiennes, Morgan Freeman).
Add Jane Fonda as her Ms. Lopez’s 12th Academy Award-winning co-star.
They team up “Monster-In Law”, due in theatres in 2004. This will be Jane Fonda's first appearance in a feature film in 14 years, since 1990's "Stanley & Iris", in which she costarred with Robert de Niro.
The plot for the films is as follows:
Charlotte "Charlie" Honeywell (Jennifer Lopez) is a professional dog walker who has a hard time finding any good men to date, with her social life mostly composed of continually disastrous blind dates. Her dreams seem to come true, however, when she meets Kevin, the perfect guy... until she meets his mother (Jane Fonda), who thinks no girl is good enough for Kevin, and *especialy* not Charlie. With her mother-in-law trying to sabotage the relationship, can Charlie's dream of a perfect wedding and marriage ever happen?
