Little Fockers (2010)

Director: Paul Weitz. Cast: Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Teri Polo, Owen Wilson, Dustin Hoffman, Barbra Streisand, Blythe Danner, Jessica Alba, Laura Dern, Harvey Keitel. 98 min. Rated PG-13. Comedy.

No story, no new plot, no logical direction, and full of predictable cliche moments which aren't even funny. Tells you how Hollywood money can bring a large ensemble of legendary actors to work under a talentless director (Jay Roach, who directed Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers and all three Austin Powers movies, is absent here).

Disclaimer: OK, I confess: one scene laughed me tears, in a way I haven't laughed since Napoleon Dynamite. The epinephrine injection scene, and only because of the little son's long scream after it. Probably only I found that mind-burstingly funny, not the filmmakers.
