Having given permission to male nurse Greg Focker to marry his daughter, ex-CIA man Jack Byrnes and his wife travel to Miami to Greg's parents, who this time around are Mr. and Mrs. Focker, who are as different from them as can be.

During production, the proposed title of "Meet the Fockers" was thought by the studio to be too vulgar. The spelling was briefly changed to "Meet the Fokkers," but that would have upset the franchise's continuity, so it was changed back. See more »
In the scene where Jack is teaching sign language to the baby, the word Truth is written in different languages. However, the Farsi translation of the word is written wrongly compared to modern Farsi. See more »

Overrated sequel with only a few laughs and smiles
I've been wanting to see Meet the Fockers ever since I heard it was coming out to theaters since I loved Meet the Parents. After hearing good reviews and how hilarious it was, I finally decided to rent it. To my viewing, I thought the movie was overrated. I had laughs in the film and I did like the characters besides the little kid, but I didn't have enough which I was hoping for. There were scenes that were stupid and just shouldn't be in the film. I mean I did have laughs and I loved the football and shot injections scenes but there wasn't enough hilarious parts to entertain me. Overall, a decent sequel with a few laughs but not enough to qualify to its prequel. This could be a letdown to Meet the Parents fans.
