Misery loves family.

"I don't like what I'm seeing from these Fockers."

Jack Byrnes

Meet the Fockers

Release Date: December 22, 2004

The makers and stars behind the runaway hit Meet the Parents are re-united and joined by some formidable future in-laws in the follow-up comedy, Meet the Fockers.

Now that Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) has managed to earn his way inside the Circle of Trust with his soon-to-be in-laws, Jack (Robert De Niro) and Dina (Blythe Danner) Byrnes, it looks like smooth sailing for him and his fiancée, Pam (Teri Polo). But that’s before Pam’s parents meet Greg’s parents, Bernie and Roz Focker (Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand). The hyper-relaxed Fockers and the tightly-wound Byrneses are woefully mismatched from the start, and no matter how hard Greg and Pam try, there is just no bringing their families together—which all adds up to a disastrously funny time of “getting to know you.” It’s just one weekend together, what could possibly go wrong?

Director and producer Jay Roach returns to the helm, along with screenwriters Jim Herzfeld and John Hamburg, from a story is by Herzfeld and Marc Hyman. The film is produced by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Jay Roach, and is based on characters created by Greg Glienna & Mary Ruth Clarke.
