Little Fockers Teaser Trailer For Little Fockers

The first teaser for this winter’s entry in the (for me at least) inexplicably popular Meet the Parents franchise, Little Fockers, has hit the Net and finds the tragically-named Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) once again unable to maintain even the semblance of dignity when his father-in-law Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) is around.

Speaking of dignity, it would seem that Dustin Hoffman has regained a bit of his and selected to not reprise his role as Greg’s father from Meet the Fockers – though from what I’ve gathered, he may still make a cameo appearance sometime in Little Fockers as well.  However, Barbara Streisand will return to play Greg’s eccentric mother once more, alongside Meet the Parents stars Blythe Danner, Teri Polo, and Owen Wilson, and newcomers Jessica Alba, Laura Dern, and Harvey Keitel.

Let me go through my Meet the Parents checklist to make sure this Little Fockers trailer has everything we expect.  Requisite verbal gag that involves the name Focker?  Check.  Over the top physical comedy ensuing at the dinner table?  Check.  Contrived setup that leads to an awkward sex joke?  You betcha. icon wink Teaser Trailer For Little Fockers

Why exactly does Robert De Niro keep making these movies, again?  Is he just passing the time until he and Scorsese finally get around to making The Irishman?  Was it always his dream to be the star of a film series that felt more like a glorified sitcom than anything else?  Go figure, I guess.

You can have a look at the trailer below:

Will Little Fockers be as popular as its predecessors at the box office?  It will be competing against the likes of Tron Legacy and Voyage of the Dawn Treader when it opens this holiday season – however, Little Fockers offers a different kind of entertainment than those two 3D, big-budget adventure flicks.  So I wouldn’t be that surprised if it does some decent financial business as well.

What do you think?  Does Little Fockers look like it has potential?  Feel free to sound off in the comments section below.

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

  1. Funny you ask why he is making these comedies…Jane Rosenthal (Tribeca Films) spoke to my film class about just about everything. When she was asked about De Niro’s comedies, she answered openly.

    He doesn’t make them to win awards or anything dramatic. He enjoys comedy. He is a funny guy in general and he is putting his reputation to use in the comedic field. De Niro has fun with comedy and he loves acting. So, he takes these opportunities withOUT a grain of salt and just enjoys them.

    That’s what she said. :)

    I personally love his comedic side. And it’s precisely because he knows what’s funny about his personality. If only Al Pacino would do the same, but then again he knows his screaming and yelling is funny and he runs with it even in serious films.

    What the world really needs is a De Niro/Pacino comedy where they try to intimidate each other.

    • Mike- A De Niro/Pacino comedy is something I can definitely get behind. :)

      Personally, I actually love De Nrio’s comedic side as well – especially in Midnight Run and Analyze This. I’d just prefer that he stick to making comedies that are, y’know, actually funny is all.

    • A De Niro/Pacino comedy: I’d pay to see that as long as it had Christopher Walken in it!

      • all three of those legends would be hilarious on screen together big D!!

  2. I dont think it looks as funny as the other ones…..but i love that all major characters aré there:,) BTW,Robert deniro looks way too old:,(

    • well ricky18, thats because he is old, no one can claim their youth forever, sad as it is lol. he is still one of my favorite actors of all time.

  3. Classic Gaylord Focker, Hilarious as always. espcially when he cut his and put blood on everyone.

  4. *finger

  5. i was expecting this to be in 3D

  6. @Anthony
    i know but its just too sad,hes a good actor….:(

    • yes he is ricky18. i am gonna see this, good or bad, just not too thrilled that failed suicide poster boy owen wilson is in it though:(

  7. I hope this is the best one. So wich ones the best so far?!? I can’t choose!!!

    • it has a different director……not good

  8. Wow… so it’s called Little Fockers but apparently the scene with the lil’ fockers aren’t funny enough to include in the preview. So it’s a movie about their kids but has nothing to do with their kids… yeah, thought the first two were kinda ridiculous, this one isn’t going to rank above lame. To bad, I like DeNiro in comedies.

  9. Man, this movie looks horrible. Just plain horrible. They’re just trying to milk it and milk it and milk it till the udder’s wrinkled and dry. A “glorified sitcom” is just what this is. The bad kid actors, the tiresome antics of a that-schtick-was-funny-in-1998 Stiller, bringing big name stars for appeal. Just end this damn series. Bury it deep with the Shreks and the Sex in the Cities. Please. No more… no more.

  10. Yeah,that’s wat I was thinking syn!!!!

  11. Stiller as usual is the odd man out. Phones it in as a performance. The orginals were not funny, nor does this look any better. The holiday box office needs a family type film, but I think word of mouth will kill this sooner than later. Just a predictable release date to milk the $$$.

  12. WHY THE AMERICAN FILMS THINK TO BE MAKED AS FOR STUPID VERY YOUNG PEOPLE
    IS POSSIBLE THAT A STUDIO MAKE NOW FILMS AS “THE APARTMENT”,”TWELVE ANGRY MAN”,”SEPARATE TABLES”,”PSYCHO” AND MANY OTHERS THAT WAS THE REAL PROUD OF HOLLYWOOD, NOW I DONT THINK THAT NOB ODY CAN BE PROUD OF ALL THAT TRASH THAT THEY OFFER FOR STUPID PEOPLE ON THE MOLLS.
