Trying too hard!

After 2 movies on death in a roll, I need something more fun-filled and colorful. Then comes Little Fockers. So, when you’re not on the verge of dying or thinking about death, you’d have to deal with those neurotic father-in-laws and whatever in-laws you’re entrusted to in life! This is one such movie. Kids, wife, father-in-law… that’s life!


 
It’s more of a crazy carnival and a controlling father-in-law in play. Considering what the theater charges these days, I’d not have been happy if I had seen this in the cinema. It’s one of those movies which is fun while you’re at it but in a month or two, you’d not even remember much about! Granted, there are a few big stars like Streisand, De Niro, Hoffman, Stiller & Owen Wilson, it felt a little overdone. It’s like everyone is trying so hard at making a good movie. The script is not too exciting or incredibly innovative. There’s a lot more adult stuff which is not too suitable for young kids too. I’m not quite sure how they market this film and I’m not quite sure who their target audience is either.
 
All in all, it felt more like a tv movie than one whereby you pay to go and see in the cinema. Too much flashbacks from those comedies on tv. The kids are what saved the film and I feel they should have spend more time focusing the story on the kids!

Trying too hard! Trying too hard! Trying too hard! Trying too hard!

I only watched the very first one. Had no idea that there was a second one in between this and that! Sounds like I'm not missing much though :P

Quick Tip by . July 02, 2012
Okay, a lot of the humor was low brow, but it kept both my husband and myself rolling with laughter from beginning to end. I wish there was more of Dustin Hoffman, but he and Barbra Streisand still came across of a long married couple who loved each other, yet drove each other crazy at times.

My husband and I took our grown children to see "Little Fockers on Christmas Eve. We all enjoyed the movie as it had a good amount of laughs. Don't expect it to win any awards but we felt it was worth the price of admission. If you are taking kids with you, be aware that there are a lot of sexual jokes. If it makes you nervous when the kids are in the room during viagra commercials you may want to leave them home for this movie.
