You know what to expect from a film like Little Fockers. The third entry in the Meet the Parents saga sticks to the franchise's regular elements: kooky parents, an overbearing stepfather, and slapstick comedy. Usually I'd probably sneer and scoff at the predictable fart jokes, but there's something about Greg Focker and his family that's just likable (albeit ridiculous).
Ben Stiller reprises his role as Gaylord (AKA Greg) Focker, the head of the Focker household — well, unless his father-in-law Grandpa Jack (Robert De Niro) is in the room. Greg is now the father of twins: a sharp daughter who refuses to speak to him, and a boy who, as Jack puts it, has a "double dose" of Focker (translation: he performs "pull my finger" jokes and asks inappropriate questions involving a girl's anatomy). Though the title of the film suggests this latest installment is all about the kids, Little Fockers really is all about the ongoing animosity between Greg and Jack.
