The most drawn-out comedy franchise of recent memory will finally bring its third installment to theaters during the holiday season. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the “Little Fockers.”
The principals — Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Teri Polo, Blythe Danner and Owen Wilson — are all back for the latest edition in the series, which began 10 years ago with “Meet the Parents.” Jack and Dina (De Niro and Danner) are visiting Greg and Pam (Stiller and Polo) for the holidays to see their grandkids (played by Daisy Tahan and Colin Baiocchi).
Comedy of embarrassment ensues, especially when Jack samples a new erectile-dysfunction drug Greg is marketing.
Barbra Streisand will once again appear as Greg’s mom, while Jessica Alba, Laura Dern and Harvey Keitel are new to the cast (Dustin Hoffman, however, didn’t return as Greg’s dad). The movie is scheduled for release in December.
So what do you think of the trailer? Reliable laughs, or just more of the same?
