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.
| Original Score: C-
The whole enterprise is tired and exhausted and indifferent; even the title is irrelevant and dissembling.
| Original Score: D
"Little Fockers" is merely a forgettable romp with these worn out characters.
| Original Score: 2/4
Not up to the high standards set by the first two films, but without a doubt a funny and diverting holiday comedy.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Utterly formulaic but not unfunny, despite an overreliance on the comedy of below-the-belt pain (prostates and erections are particularly abused).

| Original Score: 2/5
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.
There's nothing like starting out an alleged comedy romp with a disgusting joke about a man's posterior, vomit and sex talk.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
...as dire a comedy as you're likely to see all decade.
| Original Score: 1/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/10
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.
Oh Mr. De Niro...it hurts to see you like this.
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.
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.
Perhaps they figured as it was six years since the last one, we all might have forgotten the same old jokes from before.
