Little Fockers Movie Reviews
User reviews on Little Fockers
This movie was not funny. I thought that the commercial was funny. But i was wrong. I left the theater at the half mark of the movie. I then went to the movie next to me called Tangled. It was better than the whole movie.I would have more fun watching paint dry then watch this train-wreck. It was SO boring, and dissapointing.My opion is that its a peice of TURD. SO LISTEN PEOPLE, ITS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD...SO DONT WATCH THIS MOVIE. YOU WILL GET BORED TO DEATH..... LITTERALLY. .So dont waste your money........ use that money for.... oh I dont know, maybe to watch a different movie. Heck... when or if you read the review and you dont listen to me, you will be sorry for watching it. Also, if your the person who made it... please get rid of every other movie that goes with or is related to "Little Fockers" because nobody and I mean NOBODY will like it. Or at least make it more interesting.So enjoy my review.
This film falls into the standard cliche' of bad sequels. The variables that made the first two so successsful are missing from this film. For instance, the dynamics between the Fockers and the Byrnes. The Sustengo bit was not funny and missed its mark significantly. The should put this series of movies to bed. Actually, they should have stopped at the second movies
Does anybody else here like to f*** a container of cottage cheese?
This series is definitely a case of diminishing return. The second one lost a lot of humor trying to make a more complicated plot work, and relied too heavily on cheap tricks like "OMG tell me that baby didn't say that!" This installment's even worse; speaking of cheap tricks, Jessica Alba's perky adorability not only isn't distracting, it's downright annoying. In many other ways, it reaches too far and comes up with nothing - certainly not with any genuinely funny moments. The audience laughed out loud exactly three times (twice more than I did). Wait for it on DVD and watch it when you don't have anything better to do, and go see "True Grit" instead.
Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman and Ben Stiller reunite in the hopefully last movie in this comedy series. I say hopefully the last, because I feel like this movie took away 100 minutes of my life and it was absolutely not worth it. I wanted my money back after I left the theater. It was such a disappointment, because other two movies were great and made me laugh and feel for the characters. “The little Fockers” did not get one laugh out of me. The jokes were pathetic and old and it seems that they were written for a slightly retarded audience. It’s such a shame that De Niro, Hoffman and Stiller subjected themselves to be in this horrific movie. They are such great actors and I have so much respect for them, but it seems that bad economic times hit them as well. Why else would they be in this movie, if not for lots and lots of cash. Overall, I was greatly disappointed and angered by this movie.
This is the third installment of the “Fockers” movies with Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro. I was so freaking excited when I heard that they are making the sequel. I went to this movie ready to laugh my ass off. However, instead of laughing I was frustrated through the whole movie. The jokes were recycled and fell flat. The story took forever to develop and when it finally did it was boring and not funny at all. I mean farts, vomit and erections? Really?! I can’t understand why Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller and Hoffman agreed to be in this terrible movie. It was hard to watch such great actors making fools of themselves. This movie should have went straight to DVD. Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time seeing this pathetic excuse for a comedy, I am definitely not going to tell my buddies to see this.
Comedy has the rule of threes: a joke get funnier each time you tell it up until the third time, when the law of diminishing returns beings to take hold. Little Fockers, the second sequel to Meet The Parents, rehashes a lot of the same jokes from the first two films, and proves that sometimes a joke is only funny the first time you tell it.
Despite the title, the focus isn't on the Focker kids. It's again on Greg and his overbearing father in law Jack. Jack is starting to worry about his health, and decides to pass on the patriarch role to Greg, until his suspicions that Greg is cheating drive Jack to start surveilling him again. This gives the filmmakers opportunities to throw out as many Viagra and vomit jokes as they can within the relatively short but certainly not painless 90 minutes.
Everything about this movie screams "cash grab" for everyone involved. Everyone not named De Niro or Stiller appears for a minimal amount of screen time, and adds very little to the proceedings other than to officially make this a sequel. It's nice to be able to stare at Jessica Alba for a couple of minutes, but her appearance is also fairly incidental. The film is poorly directed and poorly written. Worst of all, it's not funny in the least. If for some reason Universal decides to get this group together again, I'll skip that family reunion.
