You knew it was coming… Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Barbra Streisand and Dustin Hoffman are back for more dysfunctional family/in-law shenanigans in their hilarious follow-up to 'Meet the Parents' and 'Meet the Fockers.' This time it's 'Little Fockers'!
In theaters December 22. 'Little Fockers' finds Greg Focker (Stiller) finally in range of father-in-law Jack's (De Niro) good graces when he's asked to become the family's next patriarch, aka "The GodFocker." As expected, anything that can possibly go wrong goes wrong with flying colors, and as Greg's twins' birthday approaches, he must prove he's got what it takes to become the man of the house. Can he maintain the circle of trust?
Teri Polo, Blythe Danner and Owen Wilson return to the cast alongside new faces to the franchise Jessica Alba, Laura Dern and Harvey Keitel, rejoining his 'Mean Streets' co-star De Niro as a contractor from hell.
"I feel excited coming to work with Bob. I feel comfortable calling him Bob, finally, after 10 years," says Stiller about De Niro. Of his big-screen mom, he adds, "If you look up the word iconic in the dictionary, it's Barbra Streisand. … What she's done, who she is in our culture, her talents as a singer, actress, director, it's kind of hard to get past that when you're with her, and I think she is very comfortable with who she is and she brings that aura about her when she comes on the set."
The first two 'Focker' comedies have earned approximately $800 million at the worldwide box office, and Streisand thinks she knows why.
"These are people you can relate to … the suspicious father, the archetypes," explains Streisand. "I think the times we live in are very stressful, and people want to laugh. They want to enjoy themselves and forget their worries."
