Movie Review: Meet the Fockers (E)

Plot Outline:

A sequel to the hilarious Meet the Parents (2004), after male nurse Greg Focker gets permission from this would-be father-in-law and ex-CIA Jack Byrnes (De Niro), his in-laws to-be visit Greg's parents at Miami better known as Mr. and Mrs. Focker, whose wanton lifestyle in a stark contrast to the strict and suspicious Jack Byrnes. The ensuing comedy keeps you glued to your seats.


The first thought that comes to one’s mind is ‘Damn who would have a family whose last name would be Fockers?’ While one ponders over this, the ensuring comedy is even crude. Some of the sequences may be unsuitable for kids. Negatives apart, the movie is a well executed comedy where you wouldn’t lose track of the story. De Niro better remembered for his role as Al Capone does great as a suspicious ex-CIA man with his ease at using the hi-tech gadgets on his RV. Among the three Fockers Durstin Hoffman has done a great job! Stiller and others are just around the average. MTF is recommended for pass-time viewing for those in a mood for some crude comedy.

Rating: 3/5 – Hilarious but crude. Parental Guidance must.
