Parker plays Meredith Morton, the invading girlfriend, in this dramedy directed by Thomas Bezucha. When the favorite son brings his uptight, corporate girlfriend home for the holidays, the Stones disapprove and conspire to make her feel unwelcome amid their free-spirited ways. Co-starring Diane Keaton, Dermot Mulroney, Rachel McAdams, Craig T. Nelson, Luke Wilson and Claire Danes.
I’ve never met anybody like Meredith, but it was also the fact that she was also this beautiful—I love the way that she was written, but larger piece was equally important. It’s fine to have a great part, but not so fine to have a great part in a mediocre script. This was a double whammy in a great way.
