Storyline Heading
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, the Fockers. 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.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Like the original, this is a silly, slapstick-heavy comedy with gross-out and raunchy moments. The film has a bit more suggestive than the original due to the addition of a sex therapist character.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average ...(this) 2004 follow-up, plays much like the original, but with less effective humor. In the nearly two-hour running length, there are maybe five or six solid chuckles, resulting in a movie experience that is more tedious than entertaining. The problem lies in the screenplay which latches on to the few clever and/or funny elements in the film and runs them into the ground via repetition.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The movie is pleasant enough, but never quite reaches critical mass as a comedy. The director, Jay Roach, who made "Meet the Parents" and the "Austin Powers" movies, has some funny stuff... Streisand and Hoffman create characters who are, under the circumstances, not only likable but actually sort of believable. Yet even if you loved "Meet the Parents," you will only sorta kinda like "Meet the Fockers."

USA Today Full Review
Above Average De Niro's deadpan, overbearing style again works like a charm. Stiller, as the comic foil, has some funny moments as well, though perhaps not as many as in the first movie. The dignified Danner lightens up well, but Streisand is a bit blah, especially since this is her big screen comeback. For mass audiences, Meet the Fockers may be a welcome antidote to the crop of serious, awards-caliber movies released during December. It's a silly good time, and that's something these days.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 137 moviegoer opinions. Very good opinions. Approximately three-quarters rated it "Very Good" or higher, which indicates they enjoyed it very much. Most of the remaining opinions were "Good," which indicates an OK/average movie. Only a small percentage didn't care much for it. Neither age or gender made much difference in the opinions. I certainly have no problem recommending "Meet the Fockers," but I strongly suggest that you read the detailed content information since many of the negative comments were due to the content.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Four years ago, audiences were invited to come along with male nurse Greg (a.k.a. Gaylord) Focker (BEN STILLER) on a weekend as he lost his luggage, set the backyard on fire, went a little over-the-top in a game of water volleyball, spray painted the cat and was administered a lie-detector test by Jack Byrnes (ROBERT DE NIRO), his girlfriend's father (who turned out to be not a horticulturalist, but an ex-CIA operative reluctant to allow Greg into The Byrnes Family Circle of Trust).

Now, Greg has managed to earn his way inside the Circle of Trust and things are going great. He and his fiancée Pam (TERI POLO) are excitedly planning their wedding and there's only one tiny, itsy-bitsy little thing left to smooth the way to the altar: the future in-laws need to spend a weekend together.

So, Greg and Pam climb aboard Jack's new state-of-the-art RV (with the Kevlarreinforced hull and the two-inch Plexiglas windows) for a trip to Focker Isle, the Cocoanut Grove domicile of Bernie and Roz Focker (DUSTIN HOFFMAN and BARBRA STREISAND). The next 48 hours will provide the parents of the intended bride and groom a little time to get to know each other, but more importantly, give Jack the opportunity to study Greg's parents.

Things start off well enough, but that's before Jack discovers that the lawyer and doctor Greg presented are, in fact, a liberal stay-at-home dad and a senior citizens' sex therapist. Then there's the RV toilet episode, the overly zealous game of touch football, the saucy Cuban caterer with the secret, the incident with the toddler and the glue… Ready or not, it's time to Meet the Fockers…it's just one weekend together. What could possibly go wrong?
