Little Fockers

Rated PG-13 98 min. 2010



Like its older cast members, the Fockers comedy series is past its prime, and this latest installment quickly runs out of steam. Plagued by health problems and the infidelity of golden-son-in-law Dr. Bob, Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) turns to Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) as successor to the familial throne. As always, however, Jack lets his rampant paranoia get the better of him, particularly when nurse Greg starts hanging out with a flirtatious drug rep (Jessica Alba) who's hawking a new erectile dysfunction pill. The same exasperating series of miscommunications and family dysfunction fuel plot points that always circle back to Jack and Greg's tiresome tte-à-tte. Meanwhile, a scene in which De Niro and Harvey Keitel get into a shouting match only reminds you of the better films each of them once appeared in together, although I don't remember De Niro pitching a tent in his pajamas in Mean Streets or Taxi Driver.
