In the role of his lifetime, Lloyd Bridges is "Daddy," the South's
(and possibly the world's) most wily and manipulative father.
Peter is a transplanted New Yorker who is having a hard time
loving Los Angeles -- that is, until he meets Melanie, the girl of
his dreams. Peter is Jewish. Melanie is southern. Peter is
neurotic. Melanie can handle it. For them the only remaining
step in their fairytale romance is the one thing that any man in
love with a beautiful woman fears most: meeting her Daddy.
In this frenetic, hilarious clash of cultures, fish-out-of-water
Peter goes for a two day visit that turns into two weeks of
agony as he tries everything to ingratiate himself to Daddy. And
When Peter turns to Melanie's brothers for help - the businessobsessed,
button-down Larry and the wildly obnoxious, eerily
evangelical Oink - things go from bad to hysterical. To add to
Peter's frustration, he must dodge Southern belle-from-hell
Melanie is torn between the man she loves and the family that
won't Jet go of her. Can Peter get Melanie away from her family
before Daddy drives them both insane?
M EETING DAD DY is Peter Gould's feature film debut.
