Ben Stiller plays the eager to impress soon to be son-in-law and Robert De Niro
plays the future Father in law from hell who is an ex CIA agent who wants to vet everything that (Greg) Gaylord focker does in his life to ensure that he is a suitable person to marry his daughter and enter into his self invented trusted circle of friends and family.
Of course, things go from bad to worse. Just imagine the worst possible outcome emenating from tiny scenarios, and then some! The film is full of them, with little twists along the way.
Owen Wilson plays a cleaner than clean ex lover of Focker's Fiancee, who has done incredibly well in life. In fact, he is so cleaner than clean that you want to throw him in a muddy pool after you have bashed him a few times!
All together, the friction at some points makes you squirm... It is brilliantly acted by all, brilliantly written, and will have you rolling around on the floor. It really is that good, and a film suitable for adults of all ages!
Go and see the sequels too... (Meet the Fockers and Little Fockers) equally as good!! I just can't wait for the next installment (Please God, let there be several of them).
Stiller has a way of hitting the spot in every film I have sen him in and his sidekick Owen Wilson is just simply brilliant too!
De Niro? What can I say? The Godfather of Actors! The best in the world to date.
GET THESE FILMS!! you will never tire watching them again and again!
