Meet The Fockers

3

Face it, the ferocious embarrassment-factor of Meet The Parents - - the skewer-sharp familiarity of meeting the in-laws that had audiences wincing - - is almost completely missing here. But it's a much cosier comedy to snuggle up with, as Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) takes his fiancé's family off to meet his folks.

De Niro's coasting, but any comedy slack is snapped up by Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand as Greg's parents. Even this chunk of perfection casting can't elevate the film to the heights of the original, but it still keeps it a rung above the average Holly-com.
