Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Ben Stiller Movies

See what film managed to top 'Zoolander,' 'Reality Bites' and 'Meet The Parents'

10. "Meet the Parents"

The premise of Meet the Parents is rather simple: A neurotic, recently-engaged male nurse with the unfortunate name of Gaylord Focker heads to the suburbs of Long Island with his fiancée to meet her parents. With a cast that includes Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Blythe Danner and Owen Wilson, it resulted in a surprise comic masterpiece. De Niro has never been funnier than as the overbearing, former CIA future father-in-law, while Stiller's slow breakdown in the face of constant, humiliating setbacks is brilliantly played. The 2000 movie grossed $300 million and launched two sequels, though none live up to the original.
