[3.50/10] Little Fockers (2010)


Little Fockers (2010)

Brief review: While the first two installments were mildly watchable at best, this unnecessary sequel is just a stupid, lazy and hardly enjoyable piece-of-crap comedy, that relies on its supposed-to-be-funny script and an A-list cast, but it falls flat on its face. The plot is nonexistent , and gags are either cheap, or awkward, and lacking in any sort of originality. Although the main focus is on Stiller and DeNiro, their characters are such an idiotic losers, it's hard to find them funny or likable. Streisand and Hoffman as the over-the-top crazy parents are as hilarious as they were in the previous installment, but it's Jessica Alba that surprises with some good physical comedy skills, though her character is often annoying and dumb as a rock. The little Fockers themselves are adorable, but unfortunately, they barely appear on screen. Teri Polo as Mrs. Focker is, well, just there. Owen Wilson's aim is to increase the 'fun level' of the movie, but he's just not amusing at all. "Little Fockers" is a pretty standard fare, technically, as Paul Weitz's direction is nothing-to-write-home-about, and both the production design and the cinematography are too plain and uninteresting.

Overall summary: Lame, stupid and painfully unfunny, "Little Fockers" is a completely pointless sequel, that fails to deliver genuine laughs or anything else. It's just "fockin" stupid.

I like that review! Way to sacrifice two hours of your life for a review. Sad this movie was number one at the box office this weekend, huh?

Thanks, Alex :)
Very sad indeed. I would never pay to watch this stinker. I was in shock when I found out it's No.1 at the box office.

Melissa Bradley said...

I couldn't believe this tripe was No. 1 either. Blech! Stiller hasn't had a truly funny movie since Something About Mary. Great succinct review!

Nebular said...

Melissa, there's nothing funny about both, Ben Stiller and "Little Fockers" :)

Thanks for the lovely description, mate.

Vapor, I found the second one to be slightly better actually. Streisand and Hoffman were the main reason for that - they both were hilarious.

"Meet the Parents" was an instant classic. Why they bothered to try and follow it up with sequels is a mystery to me. Some movies stand on their own.

Nebular said...

Maurice, I would never call "Meet the Parents" an instant classic, but it was quite decent. The second sequel was especially unnecessary.

Minoccio said...

I liked Meet the Parents, but fell asleep while I was watching the sequel, and didn't finish watching it. Based of the preview, this one is even dumber, so I'm not planning on spending neither my time nor my money on it.

Nebular said...

Minoccio, it's not worth it at all. Don't waste your time on it.
