Zoe said that every time that she comes around, it gets more and more like a scene from Meet the Fockers out in Enfield, and I am totally okay with that. I can't imagine the Fockers being anything other than zen about most things, and I do talk about sex as much as Roz Focker, so I guess I can see where Zoe is coming from. It isn't every day that you get to see your parents in downward facing dog is it? However, to be fair, it was our 22nd wedding anniversary on Saturday, so if we were a little more demonstrative than usual, the kids just have to live with it. We are all about embracing life and living in the moment out here these days, and it does have it's advantages, albeit wacky ones at times.
Perhaps is all just a side effect to the fact that it genuinely feels like Summer is on it's way for the first time this year, and everyone's mood and energy level has responded accordingly. It is so much easier to get motivated when the weather is better, things don't feel like such a chore. Even the menial stuff like doing the laundry isn't so bad when you catch a few rays with the hilarious magpie hatchlings out at the clothes-line.
With all of this renewed vigor, I feel really confident about the way that things will pan out over the next few weeks. It is really odd how a little sunshine can make things feel a lot more manageable, the power of a dose vitamin D certainly cannot be disputed.
Release Date: 2004
Running time: 115 mins
It is certainly rare for a sequel to be better than it's predecessor, even more rare for a comedy to achieve, but Meet the Fockers out does Meet the Parents in all respects. This is a super funny cast clearly having a lot of fun on and off the camera. There is a silly and yet highly intoxicating sense of hysteria to this movie that will have you laughing out loud.
It is a tried and true story about two families being joined together by the marriage of their children. Of course they are in utter polarity in every way, so don't expect to be dazzled by an original or exciting storyline, it ain't gonna happen. What you can expect is a child that is addicted to boobs and saying rude words, a Gaylord Focker wall of fame, a hands-on sex therapist, a toilet using cat and a lot of awkwardness.
Award winning actors let their hair down and just get silly, it's fun to watch. No awards to be won here, but you will have a laugh.
FINAL SAY: Get fockerized!
