Little Fockers

Michael the Moviegoer – @

It’s interesting how a trailer can actually kill your anticipation of a movie. If you would have asked me before I saw the trailer, I would have told you that I couldn’t wait to see “Little Fockers.” Now, thanks to the trailer, I have no interest at all. Is there even a single funny joke in this entire movie? A long drawn-out (even for a trailer) erectile dysfunction gag that seems painfully forced and unfunny? Ben Stiller cutting himself while carving a Thanksgiving turkey and squirting blood all over the guests? A past-its-expiration-date encore of the “I’m watching you” gag from the earlier Fockers films? And what is Harvey Keitel doing in this movie? Why didn’t they also get Jodie Foster for a complete “Taxi Driver” reunion? A wasted opportunity if ever there was one.

Funny, but if you would have asked me first, I would have told you I have no interest in another Fockers movie. The first was marginal, the second, overkill and dumb. Thanks to this trailer, I have slightly more interest in catching it on cable some day. Talk about dated jokes, though — 1999 called, it wants its Viagra jokes back. And yet the end of that extended (no pun intended) set piece plays out well, but we see so much of it here, it might as well have been a standalone short on Funny or Die. I like your idea about adding Jodie Foster to the mix. I’d much rather see a full-on “Taxi Driver” sequel — with the entire original cast — done as an Albert Brooks comedy than another Fockers movie.

Michael’s Rebuttal:

Ha-Ha, yes, Mr. Brooks, if you’re reading this, please do it!!!
