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.
It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam, and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get in with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack's suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam's entire clan--including Pam's lovelorn ex, Kevin (Owen Wilson)--descends for the twins' birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he's fully capable as the man of the house. But with all the misunderstandings, spying, and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack's final test and become the family's next patriarch, or will the circle of trust be broken for good? Written by

While talking privately with Greg, Jack implies that his son, Henry, is just like his father, Greg. Jack reasons that he has been doing research on twins and found that sometimes, one child will get an extra chromosome from the father's DNA in the sperm. While that might apply to identical twins, it could not be possible for Greg twins. Greg's twins are male and female and developed from two different eggs that were fertilized by two separate sperm.

You picked a hell of a time to go through manopause!
Roz, I'm not going through manopause. I'm just trying to find my 'true north.'
True north? What are you... a compass or something?
No, but let's face it - I'm a stay-at-home dad whose kid hasn't lived at home in 25 years.
There's an Arthur Murray studio right here in Miami Beach. Why schep all the way to Spain?
Why can't you support my dreams the way I've ...

Same tired Story Line. Total insult to the concept of Nursing --the entire Plot line is bogus from what GREG, "the nurse manager" could actually agree to do, from his role as an employee for a hospital. Story is in trouble form the opening " hospital scenes".
But, pushing those issues aside -- there is no Story! I mean none that counts! No plot development. No real character growth. Nothing. The entire movie revolves around sex and sex and oh yeah, sex.
Most of the Big Name stars basically had nothing to do in the movie...Stiller and DiNiro dominated (and not well). Over all the acting is simply lame. Without the spark of the Hoffman/DiNiro back and forth of movie "two"-- it falls flat. Stiller and DiNiro (and in my estimation all the adults actors, but Wilson) seemed to realize they had loser roles to play and played them that way.
The humor parts are minimal-- and forced. I had a few chuckles....precious few.
And HOW they used the kids along the "sex" issues-- was troubling-- and in one scene, simply disgusting. Over all the kids in the movie are a wash out...they are in the movie for no other reason than to be manipulated/ or create scenes for Stiller and DiNiro -- no "endearing moments" between either Star with the Kids, that mattered.
Sappy ending upon sappy ending...that can't save this movie. Mention of "something" that could be a set up for the next movie (horror of horrorrs!) The rolling credits again, trying to salvage something or maybe set up for Movie 4.
Anyway, don't pay full price to see this one.
Note to the Writers of the Fockers Movies-- if you are trying for #4 Get creative or hand the reins over to some new blood! The Jack doesn't Trust Gregg Story Line is DEAD, fellas! With this much Mega-talent at your hands-- how could you not write a script to show case them all?
