  • Summary: 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 -- 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?

    This is even worse than a repetitive rehash. These "Fockers" are just lazy, limp -- and lame.

    Watching Little Fockers is a depressing experience. Rarely does a comedy bring such an overpowering sense of sadness.

    There's really no focking place for the franchise to go anymore.

    The sole memorable scene involving a little Focker in Little Fockers, though memorable doesn't mean amusing, involves Ben Stiller's male-nurse character administering a needle full of adrenaline to his dyspeptic and unhappily aroused father-in-law Jack Byrnes, played by Robert De Niro.

    Apparently, because all the good jokes were used up in the first two "Fockers" movies, the wisenheimers behind the latest installment in this unnecessary trilogy decided to bring in some spew, opening a sick toddler's mouth like a fire hydrant and letting it rip.

    How bad is the third installment... So bad that this bland, pointless sequel features a gratuitous scene where the stunning Jessica Alba - one of many new faces added to an already overstuffed ensemble - strips down to her lacy undergarments, belly-flops into a backyard pit, rolls around in the mud, and I still can't recommend you pay to see it.

    A comedy abomination, tasteless and useless to a stunning degree, with storied actors smugly collecting paychecks for sullying their careers.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I don't understand why everyone say that it's a bad movie ... It's a good movie. Not funny as much as I expected but it's still an enjoyable movie with a very good performance from DeNiro (like everytime ! :) )
    It's a worth checking out !

    It's not good as the first two movies, but kept me entertained. I think this '' trilogy '' had come to an end. I found very disappointing that Greg's parents were barely involved in this movie, especially Dustin Hoffman (as Bernie Focker). I also expected that the kids were more in the story, the title does say '' Little Fockers ''. It's was more of De Niro's '' I'm watching you '' thing. Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) not trusting Greg was getting a little bit old. I mean come on, he didn't trusted him dating his daughter, marring his daughter and now, he doesn't trust him raising his family. Don't give me wrong, I love the first two movies, but I tough that the third one had something different. They tried to bring it back again, but they kinda failed. I still enjoyed it and it's not that bad. If you loved the first movies, you will probably find this one disappointing. Of course, Jessica Alba is hot as always. Expand

    They continue to besmear the legacy of that great first installment. I'm confident that the makers of Little Fockers, if they made a film out of this review, would find the basest and least funny way of poop-riffing on the word "besmear". "Let's get some really talented actors together for a good old fashioned cash-grab! Who cares if its crappy? I'll tell ya what's crappy....8 figures!" Expand

    This film does not live up to its predecessors as it fails to hit the funny bone on numerous occasions. The premise itself is a bit silly but that has to be expected when watching a film of this slapstick genre. However it is too slapstick for its own good and lets the rest of the series down. Jessica Alba was poor as usual. Expand

    Little Fockers gets only one award and that is the award for most predictable film of all time. The lack of laughs and story doesn't help the film either. Overall it is completely pointless to take the hour and a half to watch this film ever and it is sad that the people behind the film couldn't take more time to develop ideas. Expand

    this movie is more of the same of the others. it was pretty good in the begginning, but now it has run dry. it's the same comedy and dialouge as the last two. i was really hoping they would change it up in this one, but unfortunately they didn't. i hope they don't make another. Expand
