ANALYSIS Comparing to “Meet the Parents” and “ Meet the Fockers”. “Little Fockers” had ‘little’ to offer it’s audience. But that doesn’t mean one won’t enjoy the movie. The movie still guarantees merry comedy to the audience. The movie contains some old jokes from its previous sequels. However, they sound amusing each time. “Little Fockers” was supposed to focus on the ‘little’ twins but that can nowhere be seen.
Ben Stiller steals the show as he has always been doing. His comic timing is unbeatable, and his charm has always worked. No wonder why Ben has such a huge fan following! The movie is dominated by the roles of Ben and De Niro. One lovely fact is that Ben and De Niro still have the same intense chemistry as they did in the previous sequels.
• Ben Stiller, his comedy and charm of-course.
• The funny parts are FUNNY.
• Not a movie for children but a great entertainer for adults.
• The movie is ‘over-loaded’ with sex-jokes and poop humor.
WHAT’S NOT THERE?
• The movie lacks the magic of its previous sequels.
• Stiller dominates the movie, and so the other prominent actors haven’t been done justice with. They could have been used more, in a better way.
The movie is surely a one-time watch, and it will leave you giggling all throughout the watch time. If you’ve watched the previous two sequels, “Little Fockers” can leave you with a little disappointment as it surely lacks the touch of Jay Roach. To sum up, it is an average movie offering light comedy.
