Synopsis


Little Fockers
A birthday party for the twins gives Greg an opportunity to redeem himself after he takes a job that raises the suspicions of his overbearing father-in-law, Jack (Robert De Niro), in this installment of the hit comedy series. Greg (Ben Stiller) and Pam (Teri Polo) have been together for ten years, and now they're the proud parents of two adorable twins. But money is tight, and in order to keep his family afloat, devoted nurse Greg takes a second job working for a drug company. But that development doesn't sit well with Jack, whose previous suspicions regarding his hapless son-in-law soon come back in full force after learning of this development. With the twins' birthday fast approaching, the proud parents invite the entire clan over to celebrate in style, including Kevin (Owen Wilson), who still carries a torch for his pretty ex Pam. As the festivities get under way, Greg takes every opportunity available to prove to Jack that he's fully capable of providing for his family. Now Greg has one last chance to prove that he's trustworthy. Should he fail, the circle of trust will be broken for good. Dustin Hoffman, Barbra Streisand, Laura Dern, and Jessica Alba co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    In the year 2000, a little unassuming comedy called Meet the Parents was released and was a surprise smash hit, critically popular and even earned an Oscar nod for Best Song. It was funny, but I failed to see why it was so popular with everybody. The cast was really good and played up to the comedy well, it was well directed and well written with a lot of potential, but it had one major flaw. The film wanted us to feel deep empathy for Greg Focker. The film kept on dumping on him for him being a nurse, his unusual last name, his liberal leanings and non-WASPy background. If Greg accidentally did something wrong, everyone, including his fiancee, would turn their backs on him and leave him out in the cold. Sure, Jack was in the CIA and very protective of his family but his, and his family's, hatred for Greg was unjustified. The sequel cranked up the gross-out humor, which is strange since the first film had next to none. The casting was yet again perfect (Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Blythe Danner along with Dustin Hoffman and Barbara Streissand as Greg's parents), but the film was overly long, fairly joyless and yet again, Greg being dumped on by Jack. So how is the third, and possibly last, film in the series? 5 years after Meet the Fockers, Greg (Ben Stiller, yet again returning) has left nursing behind to work at a pharmaceutical company. His twins are about to turn 5, and his father-in-law Jack (De Niro, reprising his role) comes in and visits along with his wife Dina (Blythe Danner). Jack has been diagnosed with a heart condition and decides to pass on the head of the family to Greg, rather reluctantly. Greg's sister-in-law recently divorced her husband, and was the original pick to head the family, but cheating on her with a nurse changed things severely. Of course Greg and Jack butt heads, yet again, because Jack thinks he is having an affair with drug rep Andi Garcia (Jessica Alba). No joke, her name is Andi Garcia. Let it sink in. Anyways Greg and Jack finally have it out but tragedy strikes and family must come first to keep it together despite problems that every family suffers. Okay, first things first.... Why did it take 6 years for the writers to mash out more lame jokes based on the surname Focker? Is it really that hard Hollywood? Anyways, I have to say this is a hugely unfunny, unneeded and unfortunately successful. The story could have been interesting, with death inching closer and closer, and trying to pass on the family torch to a new head, but then they revert back to Focker jokes, gross out gags and a hot chick, because why not? Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro are such good actors, but the screenplay makes the characters unlikable and irredeemable that has me praising the heavens above that (So far....) there has been no more films in the series. Blythe Danner and Teri Polo, as Dina and Pam respectively, are given nothing to do, Jessica Alba is terrible in the film (Deserving of that Razzie) and Hoffman and Streissand contribute nothing but names on the marque, with their subplots shoehorned in with the grace of a size 14 slamming into a size 8 shoe. Paul Weitz is usually a pretty good director, with his brother Chris Weitz at his side, with About a Boy, American Pie and several others under their beltz, but he just let the whole film sink into cheap cash-in mode, sucking up every last cent from unimpressed audiences. The screenplay, as I stated above, is complete garbage and crippled with sever sequelitis. Of course there are a few positives, namely Owen Wilson returning as Jack's pick for Pam's husband, Kevin. The cinematography is decent, the score complacent, set design, sound and everything else pretty sound and well budgeted. But, after checking up on IMDb.com for some information, I saw the budget was for $100 million. I didn't see a CGI sci-fi film, an action extravaganza, or a crazy comedy that involves a huge cast traversing the southwestern US in search of money. This is a blockbuster budgeted movie where the joke is a last name. Money not well spent... Moving on to the disc itself, we start off with the PQ. Shot on 35mm film (Increasingly rare for comedies nowadays), the film looks like a modern day comedy, with that golden light glow, some murky indoor shots, but all around a sharp and detailed pictured. There is some softness and some minor ringing here and there, but I attribute this to the cinematographer and director's wishes. The AQ is also well-done, being a standard comedy track. The 5.1 DTS-HD track is mainly centered upfront, rendering the dialogue balanced and audible (Unfortunately...) but sometimes there is some balancing issues where the music can overtake the dialogue from time to time. LFE is quite nice and surprising, but serviceable to fans of the film. Moving to the extras, we start off with 14 minutes of deleted scenes, all in HD, and all like the film; rarely funny. There is also 7 minutes of alternate scenes of the same quality, and in HD. There is a fairly lengthy outtakes reel, clocking in at 7 minutes, and there are actual laughs. More laughs than the entire film and at 1/10 the time! The Making of a Godfocker (Awww geez.....) is a pretty decent 15-minute featurette on the making of the film, just nothing groundbreaking. Bob and Ben is a 5 minute sitdown with de Niro and Stiller, but with de Niro being infamously quiet and shy, it ends up being a one-sided affair. Ben and Owen though improves on matters, but its also 5 minutes and fairly forgettable. Bout Time is a 4 minute is probably the most interesting featurette, talking about the fight Jack and Greg have at the climax, but being as short as it is makes it disheartening that nothing substantial was really included on the disc. Finishing off the on disc extras is The Focker Foot Locker, a very lame 2 minute mashup of every time someone has said "Focker", and BD-Live functionality as well. There is also a DVD and a digital copy included along with another code for a free movie, both of which are expired. So if you couldn't tell, I pretty much hated the film and not really fond of the franchise as a whole. I pretty much expect to be thrown out of the Circle of Trust at this point, and I couldn't be more happier.

    What a disappointment SPOILERS IN REVIEW

    I liked the 2000 original Meet the Parents. I enjoyed 2004's Meet the Fockers even more. Why, the addition of Dustin &Barbra I HAD looked forward to this film. What a huge disappointment Owen Wilson, what, was this his movie? He had a small supporting role in the original film. The second film an UNNECESSARY cameo. You can tell I do NOT like Wilson. But, why so much of him in this film? We took the story away from the family to waste screen time to a supporting character. I did NOT buy one scene with him. We hardly see Dustin or Barbra. We do not even see them together till the end of the movie. That was the key to the success of the 2cd film, them and their characters. Two Oscar winners got less screen time than Wilson? Makes no sense does it? I am also NOT a fan of Stiller's. He does the same role over and over again. Jessica Alba and Laura Dern you could NOT even stomach their characters . You know, I am a diabetic, I can not take that much sugar. DeNiro's character Jack now has a heart problem yet we have this fist fight between him and Gaylord. SEE THE TRAIN COMING DOWN THE TRACK, NURSE FOCKER DID NOT KNOW HIS FATHER IN LAW WOULD HAVE HEART PROBLEMS? He did not start the fight, he could & should have backed away. Yeah, Jack's death would have been funny. Ha ha THE SON VOMIT SCENE WAS NOT NECESSARY. Why did we need to bring the lizard to the WAY OVER DONE BY WILSON birthday party? The daughter not talking to Gaylord. Where was Little Jack from the 2cd film? Did NOT see the character, a part of the family and a large part of the 2cd film. 3rd film NOTHING. We did not see Pam’s sister except in a photo yet her divorce from Doctor Bob was talked about throughout the film. You could see into the future the scenes, you knew what was coming. Just a huge disappointment. Blame a new director. As for the DVD, normal extras you would see one the DVD's for the first two films.

    I can't say it's as good as the other ones, but it was entertaining enough. If you have a movie collection going on and another deal comes around like I got for this one, then I'd say it's worth the few dollars. Highly recommend waiting for good sales though. This one is not a "must have" in the collection

    Not my favorite movie of the franchise, but I did find some of the movie funny. DeNiro plays a great retired CIA agent and it was a nice added bonus to have Jessica Alba as the spunky drug rep.

    Great family movie. Very funny. Some movie sequels become stale but this one does not. If you are a fan of the Fockers you will enjoy this movie.

    It's not as fresh as the first one or even the sequel, but there are a few laughs in this continuation of the Focker family foibles.
