Vulgar antics
28 December 2004 | by (DogvilleNorth) – See all my reviews

Do not see this movie. Do not spoil the affable "Meet the Parents" with the thoroughly unpleasant "Meet the Fockers". Do not replace the memory of so many fine and respectable performances by these veteran actors over several decades with the vulgar and idiotic antics you will see in this movie. Let's not continue to perpetuate this kind of moronic movie making. The first film was very funny, along the lines of "Flirting with Disaster". It's not just that the bathroom humor is distasteful - it's distracting. You often wonder when seeing a sophomoric film what it would have been like without the crude humor. You don't have to wonder, in this case - the same film exists without the crassness of the sequel. These two films could be used in a writing class as examples of how a scene, or a whole movie, could be funnier without playing to the lowest common denominator. In America that denominator appears to be getting lower, year after year.
