Date Movie ★½ 2006 (PG-13)

Shameless mockery of romantic movies such as “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” and “Meet the Fockers” can't make it to first base. Obese Julia (Hannigan) is looking for love and freedom from her overbearing African-American “Greek” dad (Griffin) when she meets handsome Brit Grant Funckyerdoder and seeks the aid of a “Hitch”-like date doctor (Cox) to shape up. Penned by two of the “Scary Movie” series writers. 83m/C DVD, UMD .
