Meet The Fockers
Now that Greg Focker is "in" with his soon-to-be in-laws, Jack and Dina Byrnes, it looks like smooth sailing for him and his fiancée, Pam. But that's before Pam's parents meet Greg's parents, Bernie and Roz Focker. The hyper-relaxed Fockers and the tightly-wound Byrneses are woefully mismatched from the start, and no matter how hard Greg and Pam try, there is just no bringing their families together.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This sequel's title indicates the content: smutty, silly and liable to make you smirk despite yourself."
‑ Amy Simmons, Time Out
"[Hoffman and Streisand] make a wonderful team, but it's too bad the material isn't fresher and more worth their time and yours."
‑ Paul Clinton (,
"Sequel to the mediocre Ben Stiller comedy "Meet The Parents" is a bawdier but inferior movie that relies on the star power of Dustin Hoffman and Barbara Streisand as Stiller's Florida-dwelling Jewish hippie parents Bernie and Roz to fuel its ill-timed toi"
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Milk bottles and related metaphors feature prominentlyas breast fetish stand-ins, but with a decidely peculiar asymmetrical preference for just the left one."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"Meet the Fockers is frequently funny, but it turns a bit too cruel in the third act to be as worthy a sequel to its predecessor as it could have been"
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"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."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"A vulgar farce that isn't remotely amusing."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"A consistently entertaining, sometimes uproariously funny film."
‑ Richard Luck, Film4
"Has its smattering of laughs, but the new faces bring fewer dividends than the elemental De Niro/Ben Stiller showdown of the original."
‑ Kevin Lally, Film Journal International
"Fans of the first will find some amusement in familiarity, but with such a comically able cast this is a missed opportunity."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"Very often vulgar and tasteless, and though there are some unexpected bursts of humor and even charm in the proceedings, it's light years away from Chekhov."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Could have been much funnier than it is."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"Repeats itself and strains for laughs where the original giddily stumbled through them."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"The expected misunderstandings ensue, as you'd expect, which would be pretty excruciating if not for the performances of Hoffman and Streisand."
‑ Pete Vonder Haar, Film Threat
