Little Fockers (2010)


Family-patriarch Jack Byrnes wants to appoint a successor. Does his son-in-law, the male nurse Greg Focker, have what it takes? (IMDb)
A little old and tired, just like its characters, with a dumb plot pulled out of thin air (“Godfocker”? Really?) and over-the-top body/sex humour trying desperately but failing to get some laughs (see the finger-cutting; erection incident). Elsewhere, there are a few funny moments (Dern’s small part is a highlight; Wilson’s Spacey Kevin is always good), and the marriage/family drama probably would have been decent if the film didn’t try and make it funny (see the uncomfortable hospital scene).
5.5/10 (Poor)


  1. I knew there was a reason I didn’t see this one. I enjoyed the original, but it definitely didn’t strike me as the kind of comedy that needed two sequels. Great review, Joel!

    1. thanks Brett! yeah. I liked the second one as much as the first because of the hilarity that was Hoffman and streisand as Greg’s parents, but the third one really didn’t add anything at all. it wast even about the “little” fockers at all!
