Little Fockers

I would like to apologize to any readers that I have left out there, as if there were many to begin with. I have not seen any new films in two months for two reasons. The first being that I don't have any time. The second, because there aren't any new films that have stood out and that I would liked to have seen. Now, on to the review!

The third installment of what is now a "trilogy" was mediocre at best. I came in expecting funny one-liners and awkwardly hilarious entanglements for Stiller's character. One would think that after waiting six (6!) years, they would have come up with something better. There were not many one-liners that made me laugh and the situations that arose between Stiller and DeNiro were awkward but not hilarious. The best word to describe those situations would be "annoying"; in fact, the whole film was annoying. To make matters worse, they stick Jessica Alba in it to make it ten times MORE annoying. They didn't need much help from her though. Adding Alba to what was an already great cast was just overkill. They make her out to be some stupid bimbo and it doesn't fit where the character's lives are. I am overly disappointed with the film. The only positive thing I brought out of it was getting to see Streisand and Hoffman together. They make for a great comedy. 1 and a half out of 4 stars.
