Trivia

The flight attendant is Kali Rocha the same actress from Meet the Parents (2000). That's why Greg gives her an odd look when she offers to take his bag and be helpful. See more »

Goofs

When Greg and Jack are talking while driving in the camper at night, the shots of Greg all show Jack reflected in the window beside him, and vice versa. In a few of these reflections, the person appears to be speaking when they are not - and Jack is seen speaking into the microphone when he is not. See more »

Very Hilarious Sequel – Be Ready for a Non-Stop Laughing Mode
11 November 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In this very hilarious sequel, Gaylord Myron Focker (Ben Stiller), his pregnant fiancée Pamela Byrnes (Teri Polo), his future father-in-law and retired CIA agent Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) and his future mother-in-law Dina Byrnes (Blythe Danner) travel to Florida to visit Greg's parents, Bernie Focker (Dustin Hoffman) and the sex-therapist Roz Focker (Barbra Streisand). The dispute between the "Focker-ized" and very "Zen" family and the rigid and paranoid Jack Byrnes made me burst in a "non-stop laughing" mode not only along the movie, but also after, recalling the funny scenes and gags. The talent of Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro as comedians is very well-known by the audiences, but Dustin Hoffman surprised me how funny he is. Barbra Streisand is also excellent, and the jokes with the English word "Focker" are great. For my surprise, there are IMDb users that hated this movie, probably bitter people without sense of humor that unfortunately we stumble in our lives. If the reader of my simple review wants to laugh, see this movie. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Entrando Numa Fria Maior Ainda" (a slang, that means "Getting into a Bigger Trouble")
