Dustin Hoffman is widely recognized as one of the best actors of the last 50 years, thanks to memorable performances in films as diverse as The Graduate, Rain Man, and Tootsie. Not so memorable was the two-time Academy Award winner's role in the 2010 film Little Fockers. Although Hoffman had his share of decent jokes, most critics ravaged Little Fockers for being an unfunny retread that did little to improve upon the two previous films.
Alongside fellow Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro, Hoffman probably made a mistake in agreeing to come back to star in the third Fockers film. Then again, the movie was a huge box office success, earning $310 million against a $100 million budget, and you can't blame actors for taking the easy payday once in a while, especially when their legacy is already secure.
