Not much to say here — Little Fockers is the third film in the unlikely series spawned by Meet the Parents. The upside is that, based on this trailer, the movie seems to be slightly less about the children of Ben Stiller‘s character than you might guess. The downside is that, based on this trailer, the movie looks like another couple hours of watching Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro make antagonistic eyes at one another. If that’s your thing, then this will look like pure gold.
This series isn’t my thing, so for the most part I’m just going to back away slowly. Looks like the supporting cast, or maybe just Harvey Keitel and Laura Dern, will be the salvation here. There’s no shortage of talent on board: Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Blythe Danner, Jessica Alba, Laura Dern, Harvey Keitel, Teri Polo and Barbra Streisand make up the cast. Paul Weitz directs.
We haven’t previously had a synopsis for the film, but Apple provides:
The test of wills between Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) and Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) escalates to new heights of comedy in the third installment of the blockbuster series—Little Fockers. Laura Dern, Jessica Alba and Harvey Keitel join the returning all-star cast for a new chapter of the worldwide hit franchise. It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get “in” with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack’s suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam’s entire clan—including Pam’s lovelorn ex, Kevin (Owen Wilson)—descends for the twins’ birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he’s fully capable as the man of the house. But with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack’s final test and become the family’s next patriarch…or will the circle of trust be broken for good?
