Trivia

The motion picture association would not allow the the name "Fockers" to be on posters or part of the main title unless they could prove somewhere in America that there was in fact someone with the real last name "Focker". Apparently they found it, because the movie was granted the name "Meet the Fockers" by the MPAA. See more »

Goofs

In the scene when Greg wakes up in his parents' bed, he holds the note left for him by Jack. And although he's holding it perfectly still, you can hear the sound of crackling paper. See more »

Also, this time, Greg realizes he's on-camera, and he has some fun at Jack's expense before revealing he's onto the surveillance. See more »

Not as good as the original, but its' still a satisfying sequel!
19 December 2004 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

MEET THE FOCKERS made me laugh a lot. It probably has more laughs than the original, but the laughs aren't as big or as fresh or as subtle. And as sequels go, it contains many scenes that are mere variations of the original: the dinner gone wrong, the sports competition gone wrong, the pet gone wrong, the Owen Wilson cameo, the "focker" puns, etc. But many of the variations are quite inspired. Thanks to the terrific cast. De Niro, Stiller, Hoffman and Streisand all look like they're having a great time. Each is given a scene or two to really shine; De Niro and Hoffman fare the best. A child actor's also been added to the cast, and he's a scene-stealer. I just wish Blythe Danner (Mrs. Byrnes) and Teri Polo (Pam Focker) were given more to do. But, as entertaining as I thought the movie was, expect many critics to be turned off or pretend to be turned off by the numerous toilet jokes. I say, flock 'em!
