Anyway, avoid this like the plague.
Greg (Ben Stiller) and his wife Pam (Teri Polo) are now the parents of five-year-old twins, Henry and Samantha. Greg, in addition to being a male nurse, has taken a job moonlighting for a drug company after meeting the drug representative Andi Garcia (Jessica Alba). The drug is Sustengo, a drug like Viagra that is safe for patients with heart problems. It is pretty obvious where this is going to lead. Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) has recently become interested in tracing the genealogy of the Byrnes family and has still has not completely warmed up to Greg. Jack has developed heart problems and does his best to keep his wife Dina (Blythe Danner) and others in the dark about the severity, while simultaneously growing worried about who he'll appoint to lead the Byrnes family after his demise.Read more ›
Little Folkers is a superb film. A little critique can reveal its brilliance.
First, If you enjoy slapstick, you will adore this film. You will see creative "pie in the face" comedy (in this case using puke), people tripping, people falling into pits, people wrestling and bopping one another. This is the "three stooges" reincarnated.
Second, I enjoy the study of child psychology. In Little Folkers the children rule. The five year old son intimidates his father with projectile vomiting - on cue. The five year old daughter rules her father with silence and regularity outsmarts both her father and grandfather. The grandfather is the biggest child by far. Jack loves playing spy so he follows people, sets traps for people and tattles on them. Like many kids he ingests pills from the parents medical supplies and suffers hilarious effects. Each child is comical, but most important from a psychological point of view - the kids are in charge.
Third, I sometimes suffer from insomnia and nothing much helps (warm milk, hot toddy, reading a textbook - all useless to me). But Little Folkers is a true cure.
This film was a nightmare.
The film proves that there is no originality to be found in this story anymore and so it really needs to be retired. In fact, it cements the idea that the original film should have just been left alone entirely. The `Jack Byrnes is a control freak who doesn't trust Greg despite how many times he's been wrong about him' idea is so overdone now that it feels insulting to keep bringing it up.
Can't you think of anything else to do?
The story revolves around Jack's heart problems and how they bring him to the realization that he may die soon and he needs another strong male to lead the family. Doctor Bob is out since he's a cheating scoundrel who left Jack's `other' daughter. The only one left is Greg, and he's a nurse so he can't be that good; right? Everything unravels when Jack and Dina visit for the twins (yes, Greg and Pam have kids now) birthday party.Read more ›

Great movie for what it is. I love these Focker movies and I would watch another one in a heartbeat.Published 9 days ago by Josh Peters
Definitely not as funny as the first two. The comedy in the original and meet the fockers was all about this awkward guy getting himself into embarrassing but funny situations. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Amazon Customer
