And the winners are…
One of the greatest actors of his, or any, generation has starred in a lot of crap.
True Grit, the critically acclaimed Coen brothers’ film, came in second with $24.5 million, and Tron: Legacy snagged third with $18 million. But none of this matters, considering we are living in a cold, meaningless world where Little Fockers reigns supreme.
The movie seems like a friggen downer, so I’ll just stick to miscarriage-free films like Little Fockers. Ha! “Double dose of Focker.” That’s hysterical!
I actually liked Meet the Parents and The Fockers. By Little Fockers, it’s even worn off on my forgiving nature. Little Fockers is a clear example of a trilogy running out of steam and repeating itself in part three.
A former ballet dancer, model, and ‘West Wing’ regular, Teri Polo is best recognized today as Pam Focker from Little Fockers, part three of the film series that just keeps coming.
Director: Paul Weitz Cast: Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Jessica Alba, Teri Polo, Harvey Keitel, Barbra Streisand Synopsis: The Focker and the Byrnes families brace themselves for the…
The filmmakers behind Little Fockers decided to stop focking around with Dustin Hoffman’s money. Thus, we have this new Little Fockers trailer – Dustin Hoffman Edition.
Daaaaamn, De Niro. You look gooooooood. In these new Little Fockers character one-sheets, all signs of aging have been Photoshopped away from the stars' faces. Notice how Robert De Niro doesn't have any lines on his forehead. Even newborns have those. The guy is 67-years-old. Leave some lines on there so he doesn't look like a cyborg! I'm surprised they didn't airbrush his mole off while they were at it. It's a huge deterrent for audiences. Why would anyone want to see a movie full of actors with imperfections? I'll stay home and watch "Gossip Girl," thank you very much.
Check out Ben Stiller's creepy, wrinkle-free skin after the jump…
Little Fockers is in trouble, and Universal Studios is deperately looking for a solution. Earlier in the week, Deadline reported that execs think a week of pickups with the principal cast in September is required to bring the movie closer to a viewable state. They were even at one point considering replacing director Paul Weitz with producer-writer John Hamburg, but that tactic got "rejected after Hamburg visited the set one weekend." He obviously wasn't pleased with the BBQ chicken quesadillas craft services slaved over.
Now Universal believes the answer to their problems comes in the form of a short, Jewish, 73 year-old man named Dustin Hoffman. Vulture reports that the studio is "looking into whether Hoffman might consider a last-minute reprise of his role as Bernie Focker in an effort to funny-up the comedy." Yeah, let's shoe horn in the arrival of Ben Stiller's character's neurotic Jewish father and all will be well. If Dustin doesn't cut it, then we'll fly in Barbra Streisand. If she doesn't work out, we'll add a ton more foreskin jokes, say our prayers, and let the chips fall where they may. Somewhere, some Universal exec has a thousand-yard stare and is tracing the trigger of a revolver with his index finger.
I chose the most suggestive picture I could snap for Universal's Little Fockers trailer, and it doesn't even get across the actual horror that unfolds in the scene. The Paul Weitz-directed threequel to the Meet the Parents blockbuster stars Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Teri Polo, Owen Wilson, Blythe Danner, Jessica Alba, Laura Dern, Harvey Keitel, Barbra Streisand, and Dustin Hoffman. You can practically smell the money wafting off the screen. There's even a turkey carving joke involving someone's thumb. I won't tell you who, but he plays the neurotic klutz in all of these films. And most of the other films he does. Little Fockers starts raking it in at the holiday box office December 22, 2010.
