Best Use of Subtle Humor: 'Little Fockers' (in theaters Dec. 22). This is the third film in the series, but 'Little Fockers' admirably avoids drawing attention to its central joke, which is that the main character's last name is "Focker." Do you get it? Because "Focker" is very, very close to "f***er," which is a swear word that we don't say here. "Focker," though, that's fine. Focker, focker, focker, focker, focker. No asterisks necessary. They say it a lot in the trailer, too, wedging it into illogical phrases like "the godfocker" and "give me a focker sandwich." Focker, focker, focker. No doubt the film will be rated PG-13, and it opens at Christmas, fun for the whole family, etc. Also, if you pay very close attention to the trailer, you might notice a clever and subversive gag wherein Ben Stiller injects a needle into Robert De Niro's erect penis in front of a child. Meanwhile, Woody Allen's latest is rated R because it says the actual F-word twice. The MPAA is a bunch of fockers.
