HHHH (out of four)
Girl takes boyfriend home to meet parents: Hilarity ensues. Boy takes girlfriend AND her parents to meet his parents: Much more hilarity ensues.
In "Meet the Fockers," the sequel to Ben Stiller's "Meet the Parents," Gaylord (Greg) Focker and his fiancee, Pam Byrnes, travel with Pam's parents to meet Greg's parents, and two completely different worlds collide. Pam's father, an ex-CIA operative, trusts no one. Greg's parents are rather quirky (his mom is a senior citizen sex therapist). Sit back and enjoy the fireworks.
Dustin Hoffman, Barbara Streisand and Robert DeNiro are magic on the screen as the eccentric parents. This movie is filled with laugh-out-loud humor, baby cursing and more awkward names than the first. Go see it.
