Meet The Applegates doesn't meet much intelligence, however, it is a fun movie to watch if you just want to watch, and not think. This is not a thinking movie, unless you are thinking "What were they thinking?" while you're watching this. This movie is weird, even to my standards. The whole idea of preying mantis going incognito as humans is disturbing enough. Ed Begley Jr, in spite of it all, actually makes this all worth watching, and I'm really shocked to be admitting this, but there is almost literally nothing else to see here. The ending just got a little too ridiculous for me. I want to warn you, even though Meet The Applegates is in general a comedy, there are a few yucky scenes ( I won't spoil any of them for you, that would spoil the fun...and that's all I can see that this movie was made. For fun!) So get your giant can of RAID ready, sit back, and enjoy meeting the Applegates.
