John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
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.

When the first film and this sequel, while hugely successful, failed to raise Teri Polo's profile as an actress, she posed for Playboy the following year. See more »
The marina where the engagement party occurs is clearly not in South Florida. The super-tall Mexican Fan Palms seen in front of the building do not grow that tall in the hot, humid climate of Miami. See more »

During the credits, Jack is seen watching the tapings of his secret camera, this was also done in the first movie when he watched Greg, this time he sees all of the Fockers in the camera. 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 »
What else can I say? This was just a horribly unfunny film. And they thought that adding Streisand was a brilliant casting move?!! You've got to be kidding. She's just a perverted pathetic one-joke character. What were the writers thinking when they wrote this tripe? Were they that desperate to capitalize on the success of the first film that they threw everything but the kitchen sink at this piece of garbage? There's nothing to see with this film. Ben stiller is naturally funny but everyone else needs serious help. This film was a disgrace and absurd for the other actors.
They could have done some fun things with a sequel but instead they chose to pad the film with big name actors in hopes of attracting a bigger audience. The film would have been far better if they had gone with lesser known actors as the Focker parents.
