Maybe put your cigarette out before you try this one. It also had a great metaphoric title as the movie follows the physical state of the pool.
The Cringiest Meeting your significant other's parents for the first time is always a nerve-wracking experience, especially when bae's father is as potentially homicidal as Robert de Niro in Meet the Parents.
