International Trailer For ‘Little Fockers’

Jokes about the “innately hilarious” last name of Greg Focker (played by Ben Stiller) never felt more tired than they do in the international trailer for the third film in the Meet the Parents series, Little Fockers.

Little Fockers finds Robert De Niro once again in the role of Jack Byrnes, Greg’s domineering father-in-law.  The aging Jack is ready to pass on his “head patriach” duties to the hapless Greg and make him the new – you guessed it – Godfocker.  But with the whole family getting together to celebrate the Focker twins’ birthday, Greg once again finds himself unable to maintain even the semblance of dignity when his relatives are in the room.

Reprising their roles from the previous Meet the Parents films are Teri Polo, Owen Wilson, Barbara Streisand, and possibly Dustin Hoffman.  Newcomers include Laura Dern as a family therapist, Jessica Alba as a pharmaceutical company representative, and Harvey Keitel as… someone only important enough to have shown up briefly in the teaser trailer.

The previous Meet the Parents movies relied heavily on physical – often outright gross – comedy gags and sitcom humor to entertain the moviegoing masses, and Little Fockers looks like it will be no exception.  Is that a good thing?  Just check out the international trailer below and find out:

Judging by this trailer alone, Little Fockers looks to be mildly annoying at best, painfully unfunny at worst.  The jokes are lame, the timing is off, and the actors all seem to be going through the motions – as though they are just as tired of these movies as those in the viewing audience.

Paul Weitz (American Pie) replaced Jay Roach (Dinner For Schmucks) as the director for the latest Meet the Parents movie, but has seemingly brought nothing new to the table.  Whether or not the majority of paying moviegoers are through with the comedy franchise remains to be seen.

Little Fockers arrives in theaters in the U.S. on December 22nd, 2010.

    • It looks pretty funny to me, but I’m high, so…

      Been waiting for this for a while, and despite what the review above said, I don’t accuse DeNiro or Stiller of ever just “going through the motions.” Keep in mind, what we saw in the trailer was just a short editing of the film, some of which may not even make it into the film.

  2. Ok wasnt as good as i thought,but its still good! So dustin Hoffman,is he gonna be on this????

    • still undetermined i think ricky, personally, dustin just hasnt do ne anythin g for me over the years. if he is gonna be in this, that means reshoots for a couple of weeks i’d imagine. how can someone so young be a fan of his ricky?

  3. Anthony
    Oh im not a fan LOL,i just think hes funny.

    well i dont like that the kid throws up. And some parts werent that great. But i liked the first 2 so i will see this one :)

    • oh ok, well, i was gonna suggest that you see Ishtar, you might like that(snicker)i didnt care for the second one too much, and in my opinion the fight between gaylord and jack shoulda happened in the first one lol

  4. Anthony
    Wow youve seen many many movies man. You must have a huge collection.


    I read somewhere that well,Jack dies. Is this true do u think?

        • tell em to shove it ricky!! its good that you take the time and make the effort into watching the extra stuff, i mean hell these guys behind the scenes are the true stars here.

          • Anthony
            I DO! But they dont listen. I always watch the special features alone. I dont care if they dont see them,but thats y i appreciate a movie,because i see all the work that went into it and everything…

              • never heard of it LOL…..

                  • Is he joking about the Blade Runner thing? Please tell me he’s joking…

  5. The first couple trailers seemed funny but this one definitely seems a lot more forced. Especially with the “godfocker” reference; the pun on the name really does seem tired at this point. I mean in previous trailers, Jack calling Greg “focker” is fine but turning it into a play on words and then basing entire scenes on it takes it way too far IMO.

  6. loved the first two movies. im pretty sure i’ll at least – enjoy – this one too =)

  7. These films should have been aborted before the first one was born screaming and kicking it’s hooves into our clean world, ruining our minds and funny bones.

    That’s my way of saying, I hate these films and everyone who watches then should be ashamed of themselves.

      • It’s not a matter of refinement, I like the American Pie films and loads of comedies like that, but I just find these paticular films unfathomly bad. Sorry.

        You’re right though, peoples taste in films is always going to be subjective, and I appreciate that. Doesnt stop me hating these films with every fibre in my being.

  8. I’m there.
    I don’t care what anyone says I am definitely a fan of these movies.

    Thats a little harsh dont ya think? Iam in no way shape or form ashamed of liking a movie. I find these enjoyable,they were made so ppl can enjoy them,jeesh…..

    • I was being overly dramatic, I do that from time to time. No harm intended.

  10. Its films like this that drive me to watch shows like Dexter,,,
    Check out “Wag the Dog”, Ricky. You won’t get it but maybe it will sink in? Of course Hoffmans in it, so its a must see. ;-)

      • testing 123

  11. 790

    • ricky, you will like Ishtar better!!

    Yeah i do that from time to time too LOL

  13. Ishtar wats that?

  14. GK333, what delivers the empathy for Dexter, is the characters back story. Its cleverly re created through flashbacks, throughout seasons 1 and 2,,,

    (Minor Dexter spoilers, read on GK333 if you want a little hint,!)

    At a very young age, Dexter was found at a horrific crime scene, and taken in by a Police officer.
    The officer became his father and soon recognised that Dexter liked to kill animals, but he didn’t understand why?
    Knowing where Dexter came from, he realised that killing was part of his genealogy. Rather then seeing him kill innocent people and or end up in prison, he created a code for Dexter to fallow. He also did this because of his law enforcement perspective. He grew tired of watching murderers get out only to murder again. So he trained Dexter to go after the scum that slip through the system.
    Sure it has some gruesome and disturbing images, but its also a massive cat and mouse game between him and his Police co workers. Oh yeah I forgot to tell you, he’s a blood splatter crime scene investagator for the Poilce Dept.

    The show always delivers great performances and original ideas.

    Just keep the kids out the media room when watching. 8-)

    • So what’s he like the Punisher of serial killers? Well maybe I will try and start with season one and see how it goes…thanks for the synopsis…no little boys watching that one dude!!

    • The other thing about Dexter is that, like in Seven, almsot all of the violence happens off camera, its mostly implied.

  15. Ricky you won’t be able to find Ishtar, so rent Wag the Dog and then write me up a report. I will then grade you on it. :-)

    • wag the dog? Ive neer heard of it, but ill see if i can rent it.

  16. Ricky, Wag the Dog is a dramedy starring Dusten Hoffman and Robert De Niro.

    Its about a cia agent (De Niro) who enlists the talents of a famous Hollywood producer (Hoffman) to create footage of a fake attack on a fake village. So they can start a real war.

    Sound familer???
    Came out pre 2001 btw,,, enjoy

  17. 790 sounds cool i will try to see it :)

  18. Ishtar was bad…

  19. lol
    why the trailer has spanish subtitles?
    not that I am complaining, I appreaciate that =P

    and the movie looks kinda lame… maybe I’ll wait till see it in DVD

  20. hahaaha yeah i like the subtitles too,but why? LOL

  21. I would assume their trying to bring in the latino crowd, or its one of Ben Stiller’s inside jokes.

    • one of Stillers funniest roles came as a cameo in Anchorman:)

  22. International trailer from a region where spanish is the primary language hence the subtitles?

  23. Can’t wait for this one Ben Stiller is the man!
