The critics are wrong, this movie is funny
After convincing his fiancée’s parents to allow them to marry, Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) now has to deal with what happens when her ex-CIA father Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) meets his own wacky ex-hippy parents, played by Dustin Hoffman and Barbara Streisand.
I really wanted to see this film when it was first announced. The original was very funny and it had a great repeat value. However, the reviews started coming in and they were all negative so I was a little discouraged. I still went to see it and it turned out to be very funny. The critics really need to lighten up since they turned away a fine comedy. Sure, some of the gags are old and tired but they still work. They use a lot of “Focker” jokes and of male nurse jokes sob that kind of got annoying but it wasn’t an overload either. The story is pretty much the same as the first one except now Greg’s parents are thrown into the mix and nothing ever goes right. The writers came up with a bunch of different, funny situations and some of them were recycled while others were new.
The cast is great and they help move the film along nicely. The best was clearly Dustin Hoffman as Greg’s dad. He was hilarious and fun to watch on screen. Ben Stiller was okay but his uptight character role is kind of getting annoying. Robert De Niro also gives a funny performance and he is now forgiven for appearing in Godsend. Barbara Streisand was surprisingly funny and bearable. I usually cannot stand her but she was alright in the movie. Blythe Danner gives a decent performance, nothing really special. Teri Polo was the only miscast in the movie. She just didn’t fit or look well next to Hoffman, Stiller and De Niro. Owen Wilson makes a cameo and it was decent, a little unnecessary though.
Jay Roach directs and he does a good job with the movie though it was a little too long. 115 minutes is kind of long for a comedy and because of the long running time, the film starts to bore around the end. They should have taken some things out to keep the film shorter and interesting. I also didn’t like the character little Jack. He was the grandson of Jack (De Niro) and he was very annoying. The addition of the baby character was unnecessary and it kind of brought the film down. Compared to the original, the first one is funnier and more enjoyable. The second one is still pretty funny but it doesn’t have a good repeat value. However, the film is still worth checking out in theaters. In the end, please ignore the critics and check this film out in theaters. Rating 7/10
The phoenix of humiliation rises again for the masses
Gliding on the good graces of its predecessor, this new installment has very little to showcase in the way of ground breaking comedy. Not that anyone would expect a sequel to ‘Meet the Parents’ as being a ‘departure film’ or a film that would ever titillate its audience with anything close to resembling an ‘over the line’ type of comedy. No, this film is just a very safe and predictable sequel.
This sequel force feeds us the chronic Ben Stiller humiliation angle scene after scene. Adding to the comedic clockwork, the producer and or director (or whatever moron in charge), decided to work in the ‘baby genius’ sub plot into every 7th minute of the film. As if that wasn’t enough dumbing down, we’re all supposed to be delighted by the dog and cat show that takes place inside DeNiro’s ‘home on wheels’. The fact that the punch line to this dog and cat chase joke is predicated on one of the animals landing inside the toilet, seems an appropriate place, the proper level if you will, where this film seems most at home.
Infants that are more intelligent than adults, cats that are smarter than dogs, how could this film succeed? Well, it can’t succeed. However, I have to admit to one thing about this film being good. The performances of Barbara Streisand and Dustin Hoffman were good. I was surprised to see a return to comic form from Barbara Streisand. She really should have been making comedy/musicals these past few years…er…decades. Comedy really suits her. Both her performance and Hoffman’s are surprisingly good.
Not to take anything away from DeNiro who is also likable, but I was more interested in the ‘wacky’ hi-jinks between Streisand and Hoffman.
Here’s the thing. The movie is enjoyable, but I rolled my eyes way too much for me to consider this a great comedy. It’s a comedy that is very much by the numbers, for the numbers.
If you don’t mind a comedy that works down to Mall level, where you can see the jokes coming, then watch it on DVD.
I would have given this movie a 5/10, but Streisand and Hoffman were a pleasant enough surprise. I didn’t hate this movie, I just didn’t like it all that much.
