Gaylord ‘Greg’ Focker (Ben Stiller) and his wife Pam (Teri Polo) have five-year-old twins, Samantha and Henry. Greg now works as a manager in a hospital in Chicago. When Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) faces a cardiac arrest, he appoints Greg as ‘Godfocker’, the head of the family. However, due to a misunderstanding, Jack thinks Greg has an affair with Andi Garcia (Jessica Alba), a hot pharmaceutical-company representative and hence, suggests Pam to resume her relationship with the flamboyant Kevin Rawley (Owen Wilson) instead.

The entire film focuses on the renew rivalry of Greg and Jack instead of the Little Fockers. While the film has some fresh humors, most of the jokes are the same old jokes that are not funny the second time around.

Despite solid performances by Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro might just be more suitable for a more serious role. Jessica Alba is a nice addition to the film, but somehow, she just doesn’t click with the Fockers.

Overall, Little Fockers can be enjoyable but that’s about all.

My ratings: 6 out of 10.

    It seems like a great movie to see. I loved the first two movies so I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t like “Little Fockers”. I have asked many of my DISH co-workers about this movie and many have said that they have not seen the movie just yet. I’m happy to be the first to order it tonight on PPV and in HD so I can come back and give my opinion to my co-workers.
