Movie Info

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

There is being a good sport and there is career suicide, and De Niro is skating perilously close to the edge.

The Focker franchise has become such a swell payday that now everyone wants in on the act; apparently even the original stars are allowed only a plus-one.

Families will flock to the holiday release with gusto, but it's up for debate whether 100 minutes with the Focker and Byrnes families is worse than quality time with your own dysfunctional clan.

The whole enterprise is tired and exhausted and indifferent; even the title is irrelevant and dissembling.

June 22, 2013 Full Review Source: Deadspin

"Little Fockers" is merely a forgettable romp with these worn out characters.

September 22, 2012 Full Review Source:

Not up to the high standards set by the first two films, but without a doubt a funny and diverting holiday comedy.

When you're easily outshined by any given episode of Rules of Engagement or Two and a Half Men that means there's a problem.

April 4, 2011 Full Review Source:

Utterly formulaic but not unfunny, despite an overreliance on the comedy of below-the-belt pain (prostates and erections are particularly abused).

That talents like De Niro and Stiller would sign off on such a turgid and bone idle attempt to part families with their Christmas cash is stultifying.

Low-brow humor and forced sight gags rule the day.

February 6, 2011 Full Review Source:

There's nothing like starting out an alleged comedy romp with a disgusting joke about a man's posterior, vomit and sex talk.

A mapped minefield of bad jokes.

With the gags cranked up on the humiliation-o-meter, and otherwise stripped of wit, the film offers little in the way of humor to anyone other than sadists.

Features the same comedy of embarrassment and vulgarity as its predecessors, but also takes a strange sideways step into machismo that leaves it feeling rather joyless

Perhaps the most dubious comedy franchise in movie history, "Little Fockers" takes another hobbling step toward cinema infamy.

Third time out for the Meet the Parents franchise, and it's all but impossible to suppress a groan.

Schindler's List was funnier than this.

December 30, 2010 Full Review Source: Moviedex | Comments (11)

There are less laughs in this tired threquel, which continues to revel in its not-quite-a-swear surname and the ups and downs of family life, this time with an added emphasis on kids and mortality.

December 30, 2010 Full Review Source: The Standard

Perhaps they figured as it was six years since the last one, we all might have forgotten the same old jokes from before.

Audience Reviews for Little Fockers

Had a couple of laughs but not worth ten dollars. It is hard to believe that Meet the Parents ended up like this. My advice: watch the first and if your curious then the second. The third is a horrible let down.

Painful third installment in a series that should have ended on the first one, when it was still funny. Honestly felt like a bad tv movie. Glad it was a free rental.

Well, I like this series. Granted, they are getting less and less memorable, but I still find them enjoyable. It is still well done. It still has plenty of laughable moments. It still has a nice script. BUT, I do think that they may need to call it a day now.

Ben Stiller's comedies are really starting to go downhill, with a well known casting, it still seems to get worse, the laughs are cringy and the films are just getting worse, as we can clearly see they are getting more and more desperate for films.
