Meet the Parents 3: Little Fockers

I thought the original Meet the Parents was a pretty solid family comedy, with the main source of laughs obviously coming from the brilliant rivalry between Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro. I never did see the sequel, Meet the Fockers, but after it made a staggering $279 million in the U.S. alone, it became Ben Stiller’s most successful movie to date and another sequel was almost guaranteed. Now, according to the Risky Biz blog, the third installment is finally moving forward over at Universal.

The movie is called Little Fockers, and will focus on the children of Ben Stiller and his wife, played by Teri Polo. Stiller, Robert DeNiro and Owen Wilson are all in talks to return, but director Jay Roach will be involved as a producer only. The search is on for someone else to shoot the movie, with possible candidates being Paul Weitz (American Pie), David Wain (Role Models), and Peyton Reed (The Break-Up, Yes Man). The original script was written by Larry Stuckey, but John Hamburg, writer of the first two movies and director of Along Came Polly and the upcoming I Love You, Man, has since been brought in for a rewrite. What do you think, is this something you want to see, or is a third Fockers flick too much?

  • I didn’t like te first one, and I refused to wtach the second one, so no, I won’t be checking this one out.

    I’ve never been a fan of the comedies that case their humor on screwing people over. The Father of the Bride remakes were the same way. The wedding cost him hundreds of thousands of dollars, ruined his home and possessions, and made a fool out of him, and in the end we’re supposed to think all is well? I don’t think so. Meet The Parents was the same way. Trating this guy like shit and the butt of the jokes for an hour and a half isn’t suddenly made better with a five minute happy ending. These plot devices bother me, for some reason. They just don’t sit well.

    why would you “refuse” to see the 2nd one? Isn’t that a little extreme?

  • Who will play the kids? Where are they filming? If you take a tour at the Universal Studios, can you watch the filming? I LOVE Ben Stiller films – he is SO FUNNY! What expressions!

    Any info is greatly appreciated.

    My family can’t wait for Little Fockers, the previous 2 Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers were GREAT! We watch the DVDs whenever we need a good laugh and regularly use some great lines from both films. I hope they keep coming as good as they have been!!!

    cant wait to see little fockers, whoever doesnt like the Ben Stiller movies is a dull person and i feel sorry for anyone who has to spend too much time with u because you are a drag!!!! you miserable basterd.

  • The person who said the 1st meet the parents sucked is an idiot! meet the parents and meet the fockers are both extremely funny and very good. DeNiro is my fav actor, he’s amazing. It’s nice 2 see him in a couple of comedies after playing gangsters, in which he does play an amazing gangster. Ben stiller is awesome 2, can’t wait 2 see the 3rd movie. I think it should be called ‘Meet baby Focker’ tho, but oh well.

    make one, we don’t laugh enough, life is to serious and busy all movies should be light and funny and these were. A great idea, I think if the late great John Hughes were still with us he would be a great pick, His were the “real” deal for funny!!! Now we wait, let’s get Focker to it!!

    I loved and laughed at those two movies. Will not miss the 3rd!

    And this is why women should never have anything to do with comedy.

  • Judging by Grown Ups, I don’t think men should either.
