Same format same results. Yes, its amusing but the story line is so identical to Meet The parents. Robert Denero's character is so mistrusting of his future son in law. Hoffman and Striesand are a couple of goofballs. A little funny but alot silly and full of nonsense. Ben Stiller seems like the most sensible one in this film.

Don't buy all the hype. This movie is OK but certainly not over the top.

This is the only film in the "Meet the....." franchise, and I never thought much of them prior to watching this. I just thought that it was created for Ben Stiller to have a franchise under his belt. However, when I watched this, I quite liked it. It's not perfect, definitely, but it made me laugh and that's what I expect from light-hearted comedies like this. The actors (especially the parents on both sides) do pretty well, and it's funny. I wouldn't say that it made me …

Pros: All the talent...     Cons: ...Goes to waste     The Bottom Line: Whose dumb idea was rum and milk, anyway?     Fock those motherfocking Fockers! They focking suck! Ha ha! See how funny I can be! The main character's last name is one letter away from being the mother of all curse words! Focker! Get it? For those who aren't familiar with my work, I'll assure you now that I'm no idiot. I know how stupid that joke is, and I also know …

Dustin Hoffman plays off DeNiro even better than in Wag the Dog and Barbara proves that whatever her shortcomings in political opinion, she can act and produce laughs in this wonderful sequel to Meet the Parents.    There is very little to not like in this movies as once again Ben Stiller underplays himself and lets everything around him shine. There are too many funny moments in this film and it would be a crime to give spoilers to any of them, so I would just suggest watching …

Well, the first movie was a gem. Very funny, situations flowed well, most of it worked, and worked together as a cohesive whole. Pretty much the opposite of this poorly put together sequel, which wastes a lot of good talent.     The jokes are stupid, over the top, and require the characters to do a lot of actions that seem to be done just so the situations can be set up. The humor is dull and slapstick, and isn't funny. The "risque" jokes intended to be funny just by virtue of …

Pros: Stiller and a great cast.     Cons: May be to formulaic for some.     The Bottom Line: A solid follow up and a very funny good time.     It has been almost four years since audiences met Male Nurse Gaylord (Greg) Focker who was about to endure a brutally funny yet trying weekend with his future in laws in the comedy classic “Meet the Parents”      When we rejoin Greg (Ben Stiller) and his fiancé Pam (Terri …

Granted, we all know that #2 is never as good as #1 - but this one is worth getting. Barbra Streisand is fantastic - as she always is when doing comedy. Dustin Hoffman is his usual "out there" self. Robert Deniro is up to his old 'spy' tricks. And, there's a plot twist (which I identified in the first scene - woman's intuition). Enjoy this movie for what it is: another chapter in the lives of a cute couple with strange families!

About this movie

Wiki

Following the knee-slapping hit MEET THE PARENTS, director Jay Roach once again keeps audiences roaring with laughter as he presents MEET THE FOCKERS. This time, young engaged couple Pam (Teri Polo) and Greg (Ben Stiller) are getting their parents together a few months before the wedding. Greg nervously plans out every detail of the trip, only to be usurped by Pam's domineering ex-CIA-man father (Robert DeNiro). Not only has he purchased an RV, insisting they'll be driving from New York City to the Fockers' home in Miami, but he's bringing along his perfect baby grandson. When they finally arrive at the Fockers' house, Greg's parents, Bernie and Roz (Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand), turn out to be sex-addicted hippies and not at all what the Byrnes (DeNiro and Blythe Danner) had expected. With one pitfall after the next, the film takes the concept of awkward in-law experiences to new heights, leaving no stone unturned from stories about past sexual experiences to detailed discussion of current ones....
