Little Fockers (2010)

Updated on December 25, 2012

Gaylord is....THE GOD FOCKER!!!

Just another day in the life of our favorite family....the Fockers. A few years after Greg and his wife are married, they settle down and have a couple of kids. Everything seems perfectly normal until one of Jack's other son in-laws ends up cheating on his younger daughter, the stress causes him to suffer a severe heart attack. Luckily, Jack was able to survive, but he decides to ask Gaylord Focker aka Greg (Ben Stiller) to become the man of the Burns' family if something should ever happen to him; thus making Greg, as Jack puts it, as the God Focker. By this point in the series, I think fans know the drill. Jack Burns (Robert DeNiro) keeps Greg's life under a intense microscope, in an effort to keep him in line with the extremely high morals of the family. Basically meaning that he plans on making Greg's life a living hell unless he flies right according to Jack's obsessive compulsive mind. Before we go any further, I do have a few words to say about the series up to this point.

When "Meet the Parents" came out, I thought it was one of the funniest comedies ever made. The perfect movie dealing with all the social anxieties and angst when meeting one's in-laws, or parents of the person you plan to be with. Something that I'm sure almost anyone could identify with on any level. Then when "Meet the Fockers" came out, I thought it was still funny. Sure, it was a bit goofy at times, but it was still a decent comedy that dealt with the angst and social anxieties of meeting your in-laws or parents of your significant other; while ingeniously adding in the anxiety of dealing with your own parents. Both movies were clever in their own unique ways, and I loved every minute of those movies. However, when it comes to "Little Fockers?" Let's just say not so much.

Don't get me wrong, the film has it's various moments where it's funny, but that still doesn't diminish the fact that the movie clearly rips off from it's previous incarnations. Retreading and rehashing old jokes over and over again. In fact, the only thing that's original in this movie is the jokes about social anxieties and angst of parenthood. But wait a minute, didn't they cover that too in "Meet the Fockers?" Not only that, but a helluva a lot better I might add? Why yes, I believe they did. Therefore, I guess there truly wasn't anything original about this movie, as it's basically all the retreaded old jokes from the last two films being played out repeatedly in this half baked sequel.

However, as bad as the story was for this movie, it's still pretty funny for what it is, as I doubt most mainstream fans of this franchise will give a rat's a** about what I just said. Plus, Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller were still funny; in spite of working with such a rancid script. Hence, I would strongly recommend fans to wait for this one DVD or mainstream cable, as "Little Fockers" isn't worth the price of a theater admission if you ask me. Definitely worth a rating of two out of four, but I wouldn't expect it to be anywhere near as great as the last two films.

      Your welcome Ken, and thanks for stopping by. I'm glad I could help. Yeah, it's still a pretty funny movie for what it is, but like all sequels it suffers from lack of originality if you ask me. Oh well. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the film when you see it. :)

      Thanks for a great review. I haven't seen it, but wondered if they could sustain the premise without recycling old gimmicks & jokes.

      I'll wait for the DVD.
