On Thursday 15th December 2010, the Little Fockers premiere was shown at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City. Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Jessica Alba, Dustin Hoffman and Barbara Streisand all filled the red carpet in anticipation of the screening of the latest instalment from the “Meet the Parents” series of movies.
The collection of films about the difficulties of joining the in-laws have collectively brought in $800 million to the coffers of Universal and Paramount.
It has taken ten years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Teri Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get “in” with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack.
After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack’s suspicions about his favourite male nurse come roaring back.
When Greg and Pam’s entire clan – including Pam’s lovelorn ex, Kevin (Owen Wilson) – descends for the twin’s birthday party, Greg must prove to the sceptical Jack that he’s fully capable as the man of the house.
But with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack’s final test and become the family’s next patriarch…or will the circle of trust be broken for good?
