Meet the Fockers

Theatrical Release: December 22, 2004
Meet the Fockers


Meet the Fockers picks up where the comedy Meet the Parents left off. Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) and Pam Byrnes (Teri Polo) want to marry. Before they do, Pam’s ex-CIA agent father, Jack (Robert De Niro), wants to learn more about Greg’s family to see if Greg is worthy of being in the Byrnes family. Jack and his wife Dina (Blythe Danner) take their grandson, little Jack (Spencer and Bradley Pickren), and Greg and Pam to visit the Fockers family in Florida. Greg’s parents (Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand) welcome the Byrnes family with open arms. Their laid-back, touchy-feely ways put uptight Jack on edge. Jack and the Byrnes family are quite uncomfortable with what they learn about the Focker family. As the Byrnes and Fockers get to know each other, it is evident that theirs will be an oil-and-water relationship.

Dove Review

If you liked Meet the Parents, you will like Meet the Fockers. This fast paced sequel takes up where the first one left off. Unfortunately, this film is full of double entendre and sexual situations making it anything but a family movie. While the humor and situations may get an MPAA PG-13 rating, Meet the Fockers is definitely geared to an adult crowd.
