Little Fockers movie review

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Sometimes going into a movie with diminished expectations can be helpful. “Little Fockers” is the third film in what one could either call the “Parents” or the “Fockers” or the “Meet The” series. Its predecessors were, most people know (or else there wouldn’t be a third one, right), 2000’s “Meet the Parents” and 2004’s “Meet the Fockers.” The hook for “Parents,” of course, was pairing Ben Stiller’s patented tightly wound schlub persona with/against Robert De Niro’s tightly wound, maybe even potentially homicidal, tough-guy persona. And the former persona would be proposing to marry the daughter of the latter persona. Get it? You’re dating a woman and you think it’s going great, and then you find out that her dad is Travis Bickle/Al Capone/Max Cady, etc. etc. Hilarity is bound to ensue.
