    The picture doesn't come close to approaching the near-classic quality of the earlier film. show more

    Does Meet the Fockers make you laugh? Sure it does, from time to time. Just lower your expectations to the altitude of the gag that's showcased in the trailer, the one in which Jinx the cat flushes a little dog named Moses down a toilet. show more

    Feels jammed into a sitcom-shaped bid for laughs. show more

    Aaron Hillis Premiere

    De Niro is constantly upstaged by the showstopping, sunburnt duo of Streisand and Hoffman, but even their material is so recycled (more Focker puns, etc.) that it doesn’t matter who steals the most chuckles. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The movie is pleasant enough, but never quite reaches critical mass as a comedy. show more

    Though it's hard not to play it, the expectations game is a dangerous one, especially for sequels. And Roach's original, just like his overexposed star, set us up good. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Too much of this lame comedy feels like it was written to satisfy a contract, with gags (like the business with the perpetually horny dog or the toddler who knows sign language) that are way beneath the talents of this cast. show more

    It says a lot about the sequel that the funniest moment belongs to none of the big stars, but to Owen Wilson. show more
