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.

The second sequel to 2000's Meet the Parents defines uncalled for. Little Fockers is upchuckingly unfunny.

The jokes are a bit randy, the situations and characters familiar, the touching moments false but fitting. It's all as formulaic as weak egg nog, but it goes down just as easy. Let's hope all involved spend their paychecks wisely.

Sprints past "unfunny," is still going strong when it reaches "disaster" and easily reaches "cautionary tale."

The sheer pleasure of the first film in 2000, already dimming by the time we got to "Meet the Fockers" four years later, has officially gone kaput.

I thought it would take years for Owen Wilson to appear in a movie worse than "How Do You Know," but he has outdone himself.

How do you top Ms. Streisand and Mr. Hoffman playing at being the happy, sexy hippie couple for easy jokes? You don't. Apparently, you don't even try, as is evident from the new movie's lack of wit and surplus of lazy scenes.

Game performances and a couple of half-laughs, sure, but this is the screen comedy equivalent of the televised Yule log.

Little Fockers packs in all the cynicism and laziness of a tired franchise's third chapter. It's the drive-through version of comfort food, comedy by repetition and indigestion.

De Niro suffers most of the head-banging indignities in "Little Fockers." The more he throws himself into the reaction shots and the mugging, the more you wonder if he's really having a good time with this desperate material.

Between them, Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Laura Dern, Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand have 20 Academy Award nominations (six of them wins) in various categories. And yet none of them could think of anything better to do than appear in Little Fockers?
