  1. Meet the Fockers? Avoid them would be a better suggestion.
  2. The cast is too good for the script and the script is too good for the director and the director is too good for the horny dog jokes.
  3. De Niro and Hoffman almost give comic life to this brainless, vulgar farce.
  4. Many regular moviegoers will be appalled by its gleeful crudity and saddened by the spectacle of three icon stars mugging through a farce that's not that many notches above "Jackass: The Movie."

    Meet The Fockers has assembled a historic, once-in-a-lifetime cast, then stranded them in the laziest, most mercenary kind of sequel imaginable. It's like the 1927 Yankees taking on the Special Olympics softball team.
  6. Don't even rent the DVD, it'll only encourage them.

    Everything has changed. "Meet the Fockers", unlike its prequel, contains too much of the Hollywood spirit with the obvious-OBVIOUS family-romance-comedy-whatever formula we all watch. Full Review »

    If you never tire of all of the sex and bathroom humor spewing forth every night on TV sitcoms, then this is the movie for you. This movie abandons the original and creative comedy of "Meet the Parents", in favor of the same old "potty" humor we see everywhere else. About the only cheap comedy gag they didn't use was dressing men in women's clothing, but I'm sure if they would have thought of it, we'd have seen DeNiro in drag. Full Review »
