Excerpt: It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get "in" with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack's suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back.
Excerpt: Little Fockers has a legacy deeply rooted in modern TV sitcoms. There’s the mistaken gay couple act, in this case Greg (Ben Stiller) and Jack (Robert De Niro) visiting a potential school for Greg’s twins. As the school head approaches them, she believes they’re a gay couple. Hardy har har.
Excerpt: The Film Here comes the apocalypse. It's called Little Fockers . The third (and hopefully last) entry into the franchise completely milks what was a decent premise, at best. Then in one fell swoop, it manages to destroy the legacies of multiple respectable actors in its wake.
Conclusion: 'Little Fockers' isn't even remotely funny. Seldom does a comedy make me as sad and depressed as this one did. This is a sorry excuse for a movie. The audio and video are about average for this kind of "comedic" fare.
Excerpt: When 2000's sharp and slapsticky Meet the Parents was followed up with 2004's excruciating Meet the Fockers , it was disappointing to see something so promising destroyed with cheap gags and lazy writing.
Excerpt: There's a bit of medical anal play tucked snugly into the first five minutes of the sequel, "Little Fockers." No greetings and salutations, just, boom, right into the butt to give the fanbase exactly what they want.
Excerpt: It’s helpful to remember that Meet The Parents was a sound idea for a comedy, turning the common anxiety of meeting future in-laws into a reasonably entertaining, relatable mix of cringe-humor and slapstick.
Conclusion: With all these folks in the same movie, there are inevitably moments when Hoffman or Wilson get a laugh, but on the whole it’s the same again but weaker and with fewer good jokes. We’re too tired of the gag even to think of a ‘focker’ line to sign off the review.
