Cole Smithey

Sequel to the mediocre Ben Stiller comedy "Meet The Parents" is a bawdier but inferior movie that relies on the star power of Dustin Hoffman and Barbara Streisand as Stiller's Florida-dwelling Jewish hippie parents Bernie and Roz to fuel its ill-timed toi

Repeats itself and strains for laughs where the original giddily stumbled through them.

Milk bottles and related metaphors feature prominentlyas breast fetish stand-ins, but with a decidely peculiar asymmetrical preference for just the left one.

Has its smattering of laughs, but the new faces bring fewer dividends than the elemental De Niro/Ben Stiller showdown of the original.

Meet the Fockers is frequently funny, but it turns a bit too cruel in the third act to be as worthy a sequel to its predecessor as it could have been

This sequel's title indicates the content: smutty, silly and liable to make you smirk despite yourself.

Fans of the first will find some amusement in familiarity, but with such a comically able cast this is a missed opportunity.

The expected misunderstandings ensue, as you'd expect, which would be pretty excruciating if not for the performances of Hoffman and Streisand.

Meet The Fockers has assembled a historic, once-in-a-lifetime cast, then stranded them in the laziest, most mercenary kind of sequel imaginable. It's like the 1927 Yankees taking on the Special Olympics softball team.

[Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand] seem to have been waiting their whole careers to do unrestrained comedy, and they step into their roles with unparalleled enthusiasm.

Amazing how altering one vowel from the king of all cuss words can spawn a movie franchise.

Catch it on HBO for the sheer delight of everything Hoffman and Streisand do. It's fun to meet the Fockers themselves, but the rest of the movie can stay home.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Mildly amusing...but joke repetition and a greater emphasis on outrageousness and vulgarity release a strong scent of the writers' desperation.

As far as completely pointless, redundant, superfluous sequels go, it could have been a lot worse. At least it wasn't ZOOLANDER 2 - MORE ZOOLANDISH

Hoffman, in particular, is a delight - he has an infectious comic energy that seems to light up the rest of the cast.
