This movie is not as funny as the first sadly, where the first meet the parents movie was hilarious this one lacks it, it's not that this movie is not Funny. it is. but not as much as the 1st one. Then you add in the new cast of characters it just didn't do it for me sadly. It could have been better, there is a 3rd installment rumored to come as of this writing which will be about the kids, let's hope it's better and funnier. Pass this one, go for the 1st. I rented it and was disappointed.

Meet the Parents was clever and understated with deadpan Ben Stiller get wound tighter and tighter around the axel with at first the seamingly normal parents of his fiancee.

This one is too obvious, too vulgar, too slapstick to be clever. You can guess all of the jokes before you put the dvd in. The thing that got me the most was how over the top stupid the Fockers were. It would have been much more funny if the 2 families would have liked each other superficially at first and then as they learn more...grow further apart.

What a waste of time for some very good actors.

Well, the first movie was a gem. Very funny, situations flowed well, most of it worked, and worked together as a cohesive whole. Pretty much the opposite of this poorly put together sequel, which wastes a lot of good talent.

The jokes are stupid, over the top, and require the characters to do a lot of actions that seem to be done just so the situations can be set up. The humor is dull and slapstick, and isn't funny. The "risque" jokes intended to be funny just by virtue of making the audience uncomfortable fall flat. They didn't make me uncomfortable, and they weren't funny. I did feel somewhat sorry for the actors forced to deliver the lines, but I figure they saw the script before they agreed and decided to do it just for the money.

Save your money and spend it on the original, or on Zoolander instead of this.

I can usually find something good about movies but to do that in this movie is beyond me. I am so glad that the theater was so packed that my parents could not sit next to me because that movie was embarassing. The entire movie was full of crude humor. Not to mention the statues of things I did not want to see and the sick books. I also could have sworn I saw some women flashing (on the bus scene) but if not, there are parts in this movie that the women have parts just hanging out. This movie should have been rated R because I sure would never have let my children see this farce of a movie. I am appalled and I am only seventeen. But to give a different point of view, my mother liked this movie for some reason. Only thing she told me was how true to life it is that cops would stun you for no reason.

The movie really dragged on and had no specific plot. I really started to get bored with the dog in heat jokes and it was nasty watching the dog humping a leg or the cat. Some issues were not resolved like the rental car's window getting broken (one of the funny moments). Moreover, in the beginning of the movie, the family is commenting about all these people that the audience does not understand so it was confusing. But maybe if I had watched the first one, I would have understood it.

The reason I gave this movie two stars is because it had a couple of funny moments but not nearly enough for almost a two hour movie. The baby was funny with his hand motions and the one word he knows is a curse word.

Some parts are unbelievable in case anyone hates that, though I didn't mind it. The dog getting flushed down a toliet and the CIA technology along with the truth serum bit.

Overall, I think if you are an adult who doesn't mind crude, raunchy jokes and just wants to watch a maybe funny movie that doesn't make you think too hard, you should watch it.

Meet the Fockers had a big promise of great fun for me - I've liked the first movie, Meet the Parents, quite a lot. Meet the Fockers is about Pam's parents finally meeting the future in-laws - an event Greg clearly is very nervous about. Things start rather smoothly, even as Pam and Greg get to the Byrneses house, where Jack is happily engaged in the grand-parenting business - a bit obsessively as is a custom with him, with Little Jack (or L.J. for short) as the object of his child-raising experiments, but then they very quickly get on a bumpy road. The main problem is the Fockers are nothing like the Byrneses - they like to live their life at full and in the full view of whoever wants to watch. They never hold their feelings, they are spontaneous to a fault and obviously that throws the old uptight Jack for a curve. A lot of misunderstandings, confusion and embarrassment later finally end up in a grand finale - The Wedding! With Kevin the old boy-friend as a rabbi no less. Unfortunately for me, this time a lot of "funny" moments in the movie revolved around toilet and sex life jokes and it looks to me I was more siding with the Byrneses in my reaction to them than with the Fockers. In short, I did not get it. Most of the funny moments for me were related to LJ - here is a cute funny little guy with the great sense of humor! I did enjoy seeing Barbra Streisand and Dustin Hoffman in the roles of Greg's parents - I may not like the story much, but those two act as naturally as they breathe and it's great to watch! Oh, and the two animals in the movie - the cat Jinx and the Chihuahua Moses - those were a lot of fun too. All in all I suppose the movie was OK to watch once, but when I watched it the second time - to see what the DVD extended version looks like - I even found it a bit boring. The extended version has the deleted scenes included and it's painfully obvious why they were deleted - they don't add anything to the narrative, only make it longer, not more fun. The other extras I suppose might be interesting for those who did like the movie. There is the Fockers Family Portrait, the story of creation of one of the main props in the movie ( I won't tell you what it is), Behind- the-scenes with Jinx the Cat and the story of how the role of Little Jack was played - and I rather liked the last two extras, they were fun to watch.

Ignore the reviewers who state that MEET THE FOCKERS is better than the original comedy MEET THE PARENTS, because it is not. No matter how good the writing is, or how charming the Hollywood A-list cast is, comedy sequels always receive indifferent reviews, and regardless of box office success, they never reach the heights of the "sometimes not that great too begin with" original movie. Sure, there are laughs, but Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro did all this before, and second time around, the back-and-forth shtick doesn't hit it off. The highlight is Dustin Hoffman, who manages to take a stereotypical character and give the film the most laughs. But cheap jokes about sex and circumcises are more painful than positive. And I think we got the idea that Gay Lord Focker is a queer name, it's only drilled into your brain every 5 minutes. On the plus side, the music zips the movie along at a sprightly pace, and there are some genuine chuckles to be had, but you shouldn't have to search for them. Like the recent string of comedy sequels (Whole Ten Yards, Ocean's 12 etc) Fockers thinks it's way funnier than it actually is. If easily pleased empty head American audiences actually sat back and watched the movie, they would realize what others have: there's nothing special about it, and probably a waste of your hard-earned green. Fockers fares better on DVD, where late-night viewings amuse more easily.

Most sequels are disappointing, and this one is no exception. Meet the parents was a very funny movie with clever jokes, mostly coming from bumbling Gaylord and Pam's domineering slightly psychotic father. Meet the Fockers is nothing but a bundle of cheap gags. Ex: Barbra Streisand giving Pams dad sex therapy. Yes its wrong and not pretty to watch. Pams dad strapping a fake mammary gland to his chest to nurse a baby. Baby spouts profanities. You probably get the picture. To tell you the truth ben Stiller looks bored in this movie probably because the only jokes he makes are falling down and gluing babys hands to a rum bottle. The ending is horrible with beautiful lines such as Pam saying, "Daddy how can you have a circle of trust with nobody in it?" sobs quietly. Ok so dont waste your time by watching this sad excuse for a comedy.

Given the casting of Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand as Ben Stiller's parents, along with Robert DeNiro back as the hot-tempered Jack Byrnes, you'd think that "Meet the Fockers" would be a tremendously funny movie.

Alas, I was very disappointed. The gags and dialogue don't work nearly as well as in the first film. What kind of screenwriter would think that attaching a fake breast to Robert DeNiro, or having a toddler utter profanities, or giving Greg Focker an illegitimate son, would be funny to watch?

The running joke about Greg's last name ran pretty thin in the first film, and in this one, they run it into the ground.

It's a shame so many talented actors had to work with such a lame script.

It's a shame to see talented legends reduced to low-rent comedy that tries to be hilariously vulgar but fails miserably. The only redemption in this sorry sequel is the amazing screen magnetism of Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand. Who knew Dustin Hoffman could actually be likable in a movie? Who knew Streisand actually has a sense of humor about herself? Ben Stiller is funny but a little too old for the sad sacks he always plays. The Burns family trio (DeNiro, Danner, Polo) is so plastic and one-note I could hit the mute button and not miss a beat... DeNiro really needs to find something challenging before he starts competing with Robin Williams for film roles. If not for the pedigree of the cast, this would be a decent movie, but I really expected better.

My husband and I didn't finish it. There is no humor in this movie that is unrelated to sex, a vagina or a penis. We got half way and just got so tired of all the humor evolving around sex. We were looking for something funny. This movie gave us a few half laughs the first few minutes and then grew old after 10,15 minutes of the same! Half way through and we were just putting up with the humor. To some this would probably be entertaining... but to us it was just too much. I don't regret not finishing it and I do regret that we waited till the middle of the movie to decide to stop and look for something else.
