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. As asked in the first movie, what sort of people name their son Gaylord M. Focker? Written by
The motion picture association would not allow the name "Fockers" to be on posters or part of the main title for the movie, unless the filmmakers could prove somewhere in America that there was in fact someone with the real last name "Focker." Apparently, they found somebody because the movie was granted the name "Meet the Fockers" by the MPAA. See more »
Jack's home is in Coconut Grove, which he says is an island. It is not; it's a neighborhood located south the Brickell neighborhood of downtown 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 »
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.
