Movie Review: Little Fockers
  • Genre:
    Comedy
  • Cast:
    Ben Stiller, Teri Polo and Robert De Niro
  • Director:
    Paul Weitz
Little Fockers, the third film in the Meet the Parents series, might well have been titled Payday. Because that seems to be the only reason this A-list roster of talent has participated in this awful script.

Robert De Niro returns as the neurotic ex-CIA father-in-law who keeps a watchful eye on this son-in-law, the unfortunately named Greg Focker, played by Ben Stiller.

Now Greg and Pam are married with children and juggling various parental, career, financial responsibilities, along with the somewhat cuckoo sets of parents. Greg?s mother, played by Barbara Streisand is a television sex guru while his father, played by Dustin Hoffman, is learning the flamenco in Spain.

There was potential here for a few laughs but director Paul Weitz reduces the film to a line of lame vomit-fart-sex jokes.

For me, the highlight was watching De Niro and Harvey Keitel go at each other. And did I mention that Deepak Chopra has a cameo, which should set off alarms bells because the last thing we saw him in was Mike Myers? hideous The Love Guru.

I recommend that you stay away.
