Little Fockers- -
It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get in with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, Jack's suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam's entire clan descends for the twins' birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he's fully capable as the man of the house.
Ok, letäó»s move beyond the ability to mispronounce the title of this one. This is a family movie review. The potential for mispronouncing the distinguished family name creates a running gag that is a bit overdone within the first five minutes of the movie opening. This movie was rated PG-13 for mature sexual humor throughout. This might be the MPAA understatement of the year. The most over the top scene in the move involves the sensitive topic of ED. When the child enters the room and observes the treatment for this disorder, I really felt that it had crossed the line. After this one, I think that it will not be long (or shouldnäó»t be long) before the MPAA and the FCC add a few more body functions to its list of things not to mention on the air.
The movie looks hysterical with lots of running gags to keep you in stitches, but only for mature audiences. Teens would probably like it because it is rude and obnoxious. Children below the age of 13 probably wonäó»t understand the jokes and the parents will probably be too embarrassed to explain them. Another theme in the movie entails the dad moonlighting for a drug company. The drug company is perfectly legit, but in keeping with the adult themes, the drug that he sells is a male enhancer. I personally do NOT want to explain that one to my daughter, especially in a movie theater.
Little Fockers looks absolutely full of laughs, but not for the young. Many of the scenes were directly from the Godfather, but they are presented in a humorous way. Many of the jokes center around children and are things that many parents can relate to, such as what happens when a little one is not feeling well at the table and ball pit humor. However, these jokes will mean more to the adult than children. This movie is rated PG-13, but the adults will enjoy it much more than the wee ones. If you take them, you might have some explaining to do that you did not bargain for.
