Meet the Fockers Follows up Meet the Parents Nicely
For starters, Meet the Parents was one the great comedies of the past 10 years and was hilarious because it was unbearably uncomfortable at times. I laughed so hard when I first saw it in the theaters that I was driven to buy the DVD... I've since watched it so many times that I've knocked the funniness out of it (unfortunately) and I looked to Meet the Fockers to rekindle that Ben Stiller / awkward humor. And you know what? This sequel did! Meet the Fockers is true to the first movie - same cast, same plot, same humor, nothing over the top. And it worked. The entire audience was hysterical for 90 minutes.<br><br>Barbara Streisand and Dustin Hoffman are fantastic as Ben Stiller's parents (the Fockers). Streisand is especially funny and nutty and Hoffman plays a completely bizarre, emotional character. I would have given Meet the Fockers 5/5 rating except for one scene (I won't reveal, but its about 80% of the way through) that really irked me (way over the top). Other than those 5 minutes - Meet the Fockers was totally fun.<br><br>Producer: Jane Rosenthal, Jay Roach, Robert De Niro<br>Cast: Barbra Streisand, Ben Stiller, Blythe Danner, Dustin Hoffman, Robert De Niro, Teri Polo<br><br>Great Meet the Fockers quotes:<br>Jack Byrnes: I'm not so sure this wedding is such a good idea. I don't like what I'm seeing from these Fockers.<br><br>Isabel: He is a handsome little Focker!<br>Jack Byrnes: He's not a Focker.<br><br>Greg Focker: Look, Little Jack was crying so I picked him up and gave him some hugs. Then I went into the kitchen to answer the phone and when I came back, he had let himself out of the playpen, put on Scarface and glued his hands to the rum bottle. Ok?<br><br>Roz Focker: Tell me, what's going on with that man of yours?<br>Dina Byrnes: Well, Jack's always been a little wound up. His job is very stressful.<br>Roz Focker: Being a florist is stressful?<br>Dina Byrnes: There's more to it than people think.<br><br>Dina Byrnes: Bernie, this frittata is wonderful, what's in it?<br>Bernie Focker: Well, a lot of the taste comes from this old skillet. I've never washed it.Read full review

Meet The Fockers~ NEED TO SEE AGAIN AND AGAIN...
Absolutly LOVE this movie!! Decided after seeing it for the 20th time..it was time to own it! If you like Ben Stiller...you'll love this! Dustin Hoffman made me laugh hysterically~ He's the father we all have and fear he'll embarrass us around others in public! Funny thing, he doesn't TRY to do this!! Nice to see Barbara Streisand NOT being the lead role...she plays Ben Stiller's mom wonderfully!! An all around fun movie...even my 3 yr old likes to watch it!!

Meet the Fockers
Bought Meet The Fockers because I liked Meet The Parents so much. Unlike most sequels, this one is just as good as the prequel.

Genuinely real and funny
Had my doubts about Barbra and Dustin, but recanted very quickly. The Focker family is a family we should all look to for acceptance within our world. It's no wonder Greg turned into such a great guy! His parents live life to its fullest and then some. They even pull the ultra-starched, stiffy-straight, Jack Byrnes, Circle-of-Trust into their laid back, easy-going way of life.
