Well we're gonna get to MEET THE LITTLE FOCKER!

Hey folks, Harry here. Seems that Dreamworks, upon making 'all da money' with MEET THE FOCKERS is going to make MEET THE LITTLE FOCKER next. Thus completing (hopefully) the whole FOCKing series. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of this series. Mainly because I have no sense of humor and like to claim this series is one of the key signs to the end of Western Civilization. Just kidding. These have been lite comedies with weight of a feather - but they're very fun diversions.

hey peoples,

HSX.com is reporting that a second sequel to "Meet the Parents" is happening. It's called "Meet the Little Focker" and "will introduce the newest addition to the Focker clan".

    Complain all you want...

    by Hung-Wei Lo

    The people that you should be lecturing is your parents, your brothers, sisters, grandparents, and their friends, and all the other people who found a way to drag your ass out and see the sequel over the holidays. It happened to me, and I'm sure it happened to a whole buncha other people as well. I hated Meet The Fockers, completely unfunny and generic. But I contributed eleven dollars to its intake, and for that, I apologize. I am the reason why there is now a little focker in the making...my bad.

    I liked the first two movies

    by antonphd

    These movies are for the people who like families and who still have inhabitions. You know, the fucking pathetic morons who pay all the taxes in this country that you hate so much. Thanks for at least acting like you aren't snobs about your personal taste in art and entertainment. Thank god you all ARE the minority. We wouldn't have ANY movies to watch if you all had your way. Fuck! If you ever like something that isn't brilliant than you have to appologize for it. You guys must not like sex much... cause it's by definition ussually just ok and sometimes meh and every once in a while fantastic. Doesn't matter how good or bad you are at sex either... cause it's relative. No matter how good you are it can still be better and you will still have worse and most of the time what you have will be just ok in your opinion. Knowing that I would think that most of you would learn to apply that to film. If you don't learn that... you will always be a disappointed asshole about film. If you do... you will have fun, even when the film doesn't blow your socks off. Ah well, why do I even try. You guys aren't gonna get this until you grow up. Until then you will still believe that your smart ass counter remarks are original and that the critical thoughts you have are not thought by everone else with a brain.

  • July 11, 2005, 4:39 a.m. CST

    So, your point, antonphd...

    by kintar0

    is that we should just accept the fact that uncreative people make shitty films that other stupid people love and we should just shut up and grow old? How, exactly, is sex, BY DEFINITION, just okay? We should all just accept this lack of artistry and be dickless like you? You see, you, sir, are the REASON shitty film exists. You "have fun" with mediocre film? Well, keep on keepin' on, man. Keep encouraging the brain death, keep encouraging the normalcy. You know what, I don't even think the majority of us arm chair critics really do "hate" the "pathetic morons who pay the taxes in the country..." But you obviously do, because you obviously hate yourself. Last time I checked, taxes are still being taken out of every single paycheck I get. Hey, enjoy the Fockers Trilogy all you want. You're stupid, it's stupid, it's a match made in heaven. If getting old means turning into you, let me know what age you started acting like this.

  • July 11, 2005, 4:43 a.m. CST

    ugh, 'tis not about the money,

    by Colonel_Blimp

    It's about the integrity. De Niro used to be a bastion of the new golden age of hollywood. He chose his movies wisely, not by the paycheck but by the artistic potential of the movie. The last decade he has made mostly tripe. What was his last really good movie? Heat? While I enjoyed Meet the parents (but that was mostly due to Wilson, I haven't seen Fockers) I lament the fact that He Who Used To Be One Of The World's Greatest Actors now has reduced himself to a) a sub par Steve Martinish parody of himself and b) "creepy" man/doctor/whatever in crappy horror movies starring Rebecca Romijn. The boxoffice matters not. De Niro isn't a movie star, he is an actor. Or used to be at least.

    Families Are Overrated

    by Warren Oates

    The attitude that families are precious are why sensible people are stuck at the multiplex with our options being either six screens of Meet the Fockers, six screens of The Polar Express, or six screens of The Pacifier. Understand this: Your family is not kooky, nor are they zany, quirky, colorful, loveable-but-gruff, or any other delightful phrase you want to attach to them. You're a pack of people, like everyone else and quite honestly, you're a pain in the ass. You can't walk into a goddamn store anymore without kids running in front of you, stomping on your feet, as they scream and throw boxes of Hamburger Helper at eachother. You jokers just stand there, saying "Stop it. Stop it", yet the kids don't listen to you. On the other hand, if I tell your little snot-nosed, Kool-Aid-moustached turd to stop grabbing my girlfriends purse, I'm the bad guy and you'll rip me a new one for supposedly telling you how to raise your kids. Fuck off! You've been given carte blanche to do as you wish and you fuckers are out of control. You're grumpy dopes who make grocery shopping an exercise, let your kids turn movies into gabfests, and simply annoy the shit out of me with your holier-than-thou feeling that because you have a family, you get first dibs on life. You're schmucks and frankly, if you walked out of Meet the Fockers smiling and telling your spouse, "It's like they filmed OUR lives", you should just go home and sleep with the barrel of a gun in your mouth.

    Warren Oates talkbacker - You made me laugh.

    by Angry Chimp

    You are completely correct - and it made me laugh out loud. I love the way that all children, ever single one that slips out of these crackers like diarrhoea is special... what the hell has happened to our society where by the largest group with the least contribution is the most important - fucking hell! they're going to inherit everything we have eventually anyway - ain't that fucking enough? I'd like to see a return to victorian values for children - where they are seen and NOT heard - and not seen. As for this movie - don't worry folks, it'll have come and gone before you know it and we'll be moaning about King Kong 4 - Kongatchya!

  • July 11, 2005, 5:28 a.m. CST

    I agree with BallToucher

    by Darth Mulder

    If you don't want to go see this movie then don't go.It's just that simple.Why is it that every damned thing that Hollywood puts out is complete shit to most of the posters on this site?Let me tell you something.Not every movie that comes out has to be some piece of cinematic genius that's going to change the world to the benefit of all mankind.Most of us just want to go to the movies to be entertained for a couple of hours.If the film I've just seen doesn't have a profound effect on my life-who cares?I laughed my ass off at "Meet The Parents"."Meet The Fockers" wasn't as good but was still pretty funny.Given my experience with the first two movies,I have every expectation that I will enjoy this new one when it comes out.

  • July 11, 2005, 5:36 a.m. CST

    My Point

    by antonphd

    Did you read what I wrote? Man. You talk big about wanting something more than fluff but you can't handle it when you get it. OK. Let's talk about the importants of movies. With the exception of maybe documentaries... you can't discuss anything really important in life with any depth. Sorry... if you think that you can... you obviously aren't very deep. 90 minutes even with pictures worth a thousand words still doesn't approach the complexity of even the simplist themes in life. This is why books still kick films ass in the story department. You guys are almost like the kids who think they know what christian rap is cool and what sucks. Um. Yeah. You know, I only start to write because I feel bad for fools and I kinda want to maybe point them in a constructive direction. But then I realize that that's the thing about fools: they think that they are the smart ones. Like... right now... while you're thinking of telling me something like how I'm that fool and you are trying to tell me that I need to get smart... whatever... you're thinking something like that or some other shit... but you don't get it... you can't really say anything when you don't really listen to who you're talking to. Go think about that for a while and come back with some respect and humility.

  • July 11, 2005, 5:41 a.m. CST

    and by humility i mean

    by antonphd

    an understanding of what you really can do and do know. I don't mean keeping your opinion to yourself. In particular I mean understanding the value of your opinion in relation to the value of other people opinions. If you think yours is worth more or less... you need to learn some humility.

  • July 11, 2005, 5:45 a.m. CST

    Wow

    by Man-in-the-Box

    It's amazing how much some people hate even the idea of another Focker movie. To me it sounds like a bunch of elitist movie snobs trying to feel superior to the rest of the world. Does it really matter enough to get your panties all in a twist. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE IDEA OF ANOTHER MEET THE WHATEVERS, FILM, DON'T SEE IT! It's not a sign of the impending apocalypse, it's just a movie. It seems to me that this is yet another chance for you to feel like the king of the movie world on the AICN talkback. And thank you Warren Oates for that brilliant social commentary on the family. Of course you're 100% correct. All children are annoying little bastards. There are no children left on the planet that mind their parents. They were put here for the sole purpose of pissing you off. It's obvious that Deniro isn't playing the powerful roles of yesteryear; that doesn't diminish what he's done for cinema. I'm sure that after 20 years of making Big Macs, you won't take the same pride in building the perfect burger that you do now.

  • July 11, 2005, 5:48 a.m. CST

    and you should at least quote the entire sentence

    by antonphd

    "You guys must not like sex much... cause it's by definition ussually just ok and sometimes meh and every once in a while fantastic." Do I have to spell out what it means to you? It means that sex has highs and lows but mostly inbetweens. OK. And if you think otherwise... well, you are either really lucky, unlucky, using drugs during sex, or not having enough sex to know what I'm talking about.

    "...you can't discuss anything really important in life with any depth." The Sweet Hereafter. Do the Right Thing. La Haine. Clean Shaven. Henry:Portrait of a Serial Killer. Happiness. The Bicycle Thief (or Thieves). Tres Colors Trilogy. The Decalog. Breaking the Waves. I ain't gonna flame you or nothing, but are you a film lover? I know I'm not very deep...but these films aren't? Sure they're not in the same league as books in terms of "...approaching the complexity of even the simplist (sic) themes in life" but people have written dissertations on these films and others like them. I like how you left documentaries out because "The Thin Blue Line" SAVED THE LIFE OF AN INNOCENT MAN! But yo man, enjoy your Fockers, glad you did. With the amount of money the second made of course a third was to be made. We all go to/watch/enjoy movies for different reasons...hell when I lived on the East Coast in the summertime I'd go see anything to get out of 100 degree heat and 98% humidity. But what does paying taxes have to do with any of this? In my line of work I try not to let the gov. in on how much I actually make (p.s. tip your bartenders in cash so we don't have to declare it). So you pay your taxes to support our Military Industrial State. GFY. Let's just keep this 'bout film though...please? And hey man, take your girl/guy to "The Wedding Crashers", have your ok sex but please say why you dug the soon to be Focker fecta. List. Explain. Point out the jokes you dug. "He's a jew" "So was JC" type of stuff ya know?

  • July 11, 2005, 6:42 a.m. CST

    alright, keepcoolbutcare, I got ahead of myself there

    by antonphd

    I wasn't thinking about all movies. It's like 4am. I was talking about commercial movies made by hollywood. Especially the kind of movies talked about on this site. Although, with rare exception, movies don't handle important life issues with depth. Many have made impacting statements. I am the first to say that is one reason I love movies. That and the pretty pictures and sounds. :) But I have such a hard time reading people talk so importantly about superhero movies and situational comedies. They don't realise how much they sound like religious extremists and racists when they talk. I just can't fathom why a person would spend time ripping apart a colorful fun film when the film wasn't ever trying to be something deep enough to pull apart in the first place. And to talk like people who like a simple movie are simple minded people. It's like you are only allowed to like complicated movies. That's it. Everything else is shit. Wow. I have NEVER met an painter who wasnt' awed by a blue sky... or a sculpter who wasn't amazed by sphere... or a writer who didn't think that less was more... or a dancer who didn't just like spinning. Who are these people who say what is art... they aren't artists. Who are these people who say that clowns aren't funny... they are entertainers. So, in my book, they can shut the fuck up.

    you just redeemed yourself with that last post antonphd

    by Colonel_Blimp

    Excellent points. You could also argue that a complicated (or rather complex?) film to the average AICN TBer is nothing else than a movie with a downbeat pessimistic ending. It never fails: happy (eg. spielberg) ending: movie sucks; BUT everyone dies and hate each other ending: great movie. you just need to learn to love, and to be loved in return, guys. maybe then you would bother to smile once in a while.

  • July 11, 2005, 6:53 a.m. CST

    There is nothing wrong with a happy ending...

    by DanielKurland

    but the thing is, it is done so often. A pessimistic ending doesn't make a movie better, but in my opinion, I appreciate it when a movie takes a less taken route and has a devastating ending rather than a predictable happy one.

    by Colonel_Blimp

    even if it doesn't correspond with the rest of the movie? i sort of agree with you. my favourite are the bittersweet endings. Where things in a way turn out happy, but so much is lost and broken on the way you know that things will never be as they were. for instance: LOTR, the searchers, A.I. (yes, A.I.!) to name a few. and I just noticed something great: thanks to the prequel trilogy, the ending of RotJ now has a much more bittersweet feel to it. that's lovely. but ultimately, a movie's ending has to be appropriate to the rest of the movie. you can't just throw in an unhappy ending just because it was unexpected.

    De Niro is NOT funny

    by HootDad

    De Niro is marginally watchable in dramas. In comedies, with all the mugging he does, he is unbearable. "Meet the Parents" was torture and, thankfully, all I had to do was turn it off. Never had a desire to see the second. They won't be getting any of my money for this thing.

  • July 11, 2005, 7:20 a.m. CST

    we're nerds, geeks...

    by keepcoolbutcare

    To WAY SIMPLY OVERSTATE THINGS...I think a lot (NOT ALL) of the people who come to this site were/are the comic book reading, sci-fi lovin' outcasts (or at least they perceived themselves to be) kids that formed a bond with said sci-fi, comic books that they couldn't/didn't find with others. (MYSELF INCLUDED) Now that they/we ("the Royal We") have mostly good jobs and positions of power they want to let other folks know how strongly they feel about "their" (mine as well) material. We simply want our material to be treated with respect. I mean this is Harry's site, and while we don't always agree with the big man, his tastes and his interests are what brought us here in the first place. Yeah so some of us are a tad bit overzealous in getting our points across...we just "want the world and we want it........NOW!!!" Do you read Harry's reviews, his top ten? How many critics are gonna have "Oldboy" (good choice) or "Slimido" (um, no) as their top films of a given year. How many people are gonna name their kids Toshiro Lucas? So yeah, people may get a little touchy 'bout stuff, but bashing us outright isn't gonna change the way we view things. Nor will any flaming on you change yours. But if you give us reasons as to why you like 'Fockers, point out why you think they're good films, in a respectful, decent tone, then people will show ya the love back. And c'mon, we all go by an alias here, nothing written here is gonna change the world, and when not conversing with someone face to face sometimes we make our points a little bit harshly. And a "Colorful, fun film" to you might be someone else's cumstain on a rug. And you've never met a writer "who didn't think less was more"? I know I've never "met" Thomas Pynchon, David Foster Wallace, Neal Stephenson, Zadie Smith...but do you think they proscribe to that? No we may not be artists...but we are, all of us, CRITICS. It's all just mental masturbation anyway, but I think it's fun. And don't you...cuz here you are at (well for me at least) 5:00am debating with one of us. Enjoy.

    by TheTerminator

    Yes, it's true that not every film has to be some cinematic masterpiece that 'changes the world' or whatever someone said. HOWEVER, the reason that most of us despise films such as "Meet the Fockers" so much is because it sets a TREND for the studios. If one crappy movie makes 300 million, then they give us 20 more crappy movies. THAT is the problem. It would be one thing if the studios gave us a 'fun' (i.e. "crappy") movie ONCE IN A WHILE. Instead, with the success of one crappy, 'fun' movie, we are given 20 crappy, 'fun' movies. That is the problem, people.

    Hating Meet the Fockers is not elitist.

    by I Dunno

    I thought Starsky and Hutch was hilarious so I'm definitly not an elitist when it comes to comedy. The problem was that Meet the Fockers wasn't a comedy as I define the term. There were simply no jokes in it, save the blue dog. Really. Watch it again. Tell me what parts even attempted to be funny, I'm willing to learn. You are right about one thing though, I hate pedestrian family types who slap magnetic soccar balls and "Support the Troops" ribbons on their SUVs and talk about who got voted off what last night by the water cooler and make movies like Monster in Law possible. Maybe that makes me an elitist but disliking Meet the Fockers doesn't. All that means is that I'm not so dependant on the laugh tracks in Everyone Loves Raymond to tell me what's funny that I can't think for myself.

    by The+Hitman

    I play in the HSX, it's a fun diversion, that being said, they have a ton of "stocks" out there that'll never see the light of day. While I believe Lil' Focker will happen (because there is money to be made), HSX doesn't break any news. It throws out possible ideas, some stick, some don't.

    by I saved Latin

    I'm doing pretty well. It takes some time time to get going. The old saying, you have to have money to make money. Once you get to around 20 million you start to grow at a much faster rate. As far as advice, I'd get some stock of a guarantee that's got a while till it's release. Be patient and hang on to it. I could recommend the new Batman sequel that just posted or even the next Indiana Jones flick is still at a fair price. I bought War of the Worlds last year at $65 a sahre and sold it the day it was released for $211. Then you roll the profits from that into several smaller films with potential to hit big, like Bad News Bears or Dukes of Hazzard or something. Not too expensive, and if it's a big hit, you're rolling in it. If not, you won't lose anything. I've also found that it's best to dump the blockbusters in the few days before release, they tend to be over valued. Have fun.

    It's my understanding that every movie on HSX is on the burner somewhere. I don't think they themselves think up movie ideas and post them. There's a ton of movies listed that will in fact never go to camera, but they're all in the development stage with someone, somewhere.

But for every one of those, I've also got a Submariner, Jetson, and Rainbow Six. I was in it on the music side too, then they sold that off to that other music channel (I think it's the Pulse or something). Other tip, I buy Mutual Funds there too, they all work out positive.

    My sister used to be the blacksheep of the family. A real slut, slept with every guy she's ever seen. Borderline alchoholic. Casual drug user. Meanwhile, I did nothing. I was about as good a kid you can have. I was the favorite one. Then one day my sister slept with some good ole boy form Atlanta and popped a kid out. Now she's better than me, and my folks send her money left and right "for the kid" even though my sister uses it to buy fancy computers and a new car and a new house. I can barely pay my rent, by the way. But, "it's my own damn fault." World ain't fair, but we all know that.

    Blame Matt Lauer

    by abcdefghijklmnop

    The reason the title is so familiar is because Matt Lauer suggested it during a Dateline interview with the cast. The actors did a collective, "Hey, that's pretty funny", so it obviously stuck. Let's just hope Matt Lauer hasn't written the only funny joke in the film.

    ...as someone who paid for himself and his wife to see Meet the Fockers to the asshole friend and his wife who, after seeing it once, recommended the four of us go and see it together before dinner one night. It was largely unfunny and emotionally heavy-handed and, unfortunately, introduced the term "ash hooooole!" into the lexicon of stupid movie quotes my acquaintances throw around at parties. To be fair, I made the same friend pay for our dinners while listening to my 1,000-word monologue on why the film was so unfunny and he needed to see more movies before recommending any in the future. I also ordered the tenderloin, just to be spiteful.

That and likening it to a mediocre sex life is like... fuck dude, why don't you just give us a rope and pinata pole? Frankly, I think the majority of talk backers (Lucas apologizers, Lucas haters, Whedonites, Whedon bashers alike) are doing exactly what the talkback was invented for. Exchanging opinions and ideas. Your arguement presupposes that no one on this site has considered the experience that you currently hold. i.e., that your experiences outweighs everyone else's. Perhaps your PhD is in film criticism, perhaps not. All I know is, the only thing that comes from raising the bar- and make no mistake, many of the talkback forums users are well planted in the industry- is a raised bar. I'm a minority (in more ways than one) and if you dared unleash your venom beyond my cinematic rights on to the realm of my civil rights, you'd probably see how fucking ridiculous you're being. Take a chill pill, and relish that you like something someone else can't figure out. Shouldn't that be enough?

    But I found Meet the Fockers to be forced. And forced humour is not funny. My beef with the third movie is it seems to me that the entire film is being created around the title. That does not bode well. And F69, I heard they are doing a 4th American Pie with none of the original cast and it takes place at band camp. I guess they had a bunch of Meatballs sequel spec scripts lying around. Just change the camp to a music camp and add Stifler's little brother and you got a movie. Sounds like something fished out of the kybo.

    Crap Is Still Crap

    by Warren Oates

    I love Say Anything... and that's a sappy flick that gets me crying everytime. Fast Times at Ridgemont High isn't exactly a complicated piece of art either, but I still loved it. I was excited by War of the Worlds. Fuck, I even enjoyed House of Wax cause I'm a sucker for shitty horror movies; have been since I was little. People can like fluff. Movies like 'Fockers' is just lazy comedy. There's nothing to it. It's not well-written or executed nor does fall into the so-bad-it's-fun category. It has the weight of air. On top of that, there's a smarminess to it, one that oozes from the pores of Middle America; a notion that they, The Heartland Family, are more important and real than everyone else. It's obnoxious and movies that secrete that vileness are obnoxious. Kids cussing is not funny and any movie featuring that automatically gets knocked into The Lame Category. So, get off your high horse, acting as though you're a real folksy fella who appreciates the beauty in everything. You're busting at the seams with immodest modesty. You're a snob like me and everyone else. Embrace it. And by the way, I'm in total agreeance that movie geeks take stuff TOO seriously. That's why we got a psycho-analytical Batman movie. He's a comic book character; he doesn't need to be pyscho-analyzed. All you're doing is boring me. But still, 'Fockers' is as funny as a dead dog dick. And I don't know about you, but even though sex doesn't always set off fireworks in the sky, I've never had a shoulder-shrugging session. You're either emotionally stunted or dead.

    There wasn't any real need for the second movie

    by performingmonkey

    Well, apart from the need to make millions of dollars. But there's only so far jokes and concepts can be taken. Take the Austin Powers series for example (also directed by 'Parents' and 'Fockers' director Jay Roach), by the time of Goldmember it wasn't just joke recycling but recycling of the recycling of the parodying of the first movie, which itself was a parody in the first place! Admittedly, Goldmember was still funny, mostly because of Myers. But sadly, there's no-one in the 'Parents' franchise (he he, now it's a FRANCHISE!!) who is funny. Also, they already did baby jokes in 'Fockers' so what the freaking fuck are they gonna do in this movie? Is there gonna be numerous Hollywood cameos? The studio should be putting their money into something more worthwhile. Like Austin Powers 4.......... Titles, anyone? The Man With The Golden Cum? Live And Let Shag? Tommorrow Never Shags? Thunderballs?

  • I thought Meet The Parents was a hoot. Really silly funny. But Meet The Fockers was embarrassing how unfunny it was. There wasn't one thing that was remotely funny. It was mostly just really uncomfortable. I can't believe Streisand came out of retirement for that mess. The baby in MTF should have been a clue. Anytime a baby or precocious kid is introduced into a film series, the franchise is toast. I can't believe they're going back for seconds with a new baby. Yikes. Unfunny crap.

    by antonphd

    You know I am just insulted when time after time after time I have to read about how much I suck because I had a good time at the movies. OK, so it's trash talk to get a point to the studios that you don't want these kind of movies. Fine. I guess if you want to play the political mud slinging your opponent thing then go for it. I just thought that you guys(the guys doing it, not EVERYONE in talkback) would want to be above that. I thought that real art enthusiasts would try to have a higher standard of behavior. Why you can't just say that you DON'T LIKE THESE TYPES OF MOVIES instead of alienating people who do and yourselves by the way by insulting the movie and the makers and the viewers is beyond me. I thought art enthusiasts were civilized. I hear an insulting attack on innocent people who are just trying to have a good time and I get pretty pissed about it. Why can't you guys just talk nice? I think it's funny as hell to read the over the top posts, but, the ones that bother me are the ones that you can tell are really trying to hurt people by what they are saying. I don't think that I am better than anyone else here, but I would like to see some respect from the posters. Don't you guys hear the people who continually ask for respect? They aren't saying that you should shutup, they are saying that they want to voice their opinions without being treated like they are in a political race. You know it could be done. Posters could become respectful and then finally gain some real power in numbers instead of trying the bully method which everyone knows doesn't work.

  • if we can be taken seriously. it's just so hard to quote a good point when it is in a sentence that is full of shit. maybe someone in power could actually say 'look, see what they are all saying'. yes, we are the minority viewers. but being a minorty never stopped any one before. being quoted saying shit is easy to dismiss.

    can you fucking imagine

    by Mr Brownstone

    If they had made 2 sequels to The In-Laws. yeah I think it woulda worn thin after the original too. The problem with Fockers is that it was so sure the concept was funny they forgot to make the actual movie funny. Parents worked to certain extent because DeNiro (and his family) played the straight man to Stillers clown, but in Fockers DeNiro was played as a clown too, sucking out any comedic tension. The same problem occured in Anchorman where Christina Applegate played her 'straight man' role like she was in on the joke. As far as the fucking Fockers goes, the only part that got a real laugh out of me was Owen Wilson playing the Pan Flute at the wedding.

    I love free writing. Especially when I am taking a view that is not my own. It's goddamn diddly dooky fun! Sometimes you just want to go off of the mother fucking edge, you know. :) Can't do it at work? Come to ain't it cool news! The best place to hypochritically blast someone! I love it!

    does "hypochritically" mean?

    for the record... in this thread it was my own view

    but hey, you think it's easy being a nice guy 24/7? This is my back alley porn theater. Wouldn't it be funny if someday I happen into politics and this gets drug out. Oh my god! That would be so funny! And suck. For the record... I was playing mystery science theater before there was one. My friends and I called it what to do when nothing but badly dubbed Godzilla movies are playing all saturday afternoon.

    Jesus, You're Lame

    by Warren Oates

    Between your choirboy temper tantrum about paying taxes to your dead-in-the-water attempt at humor, no wonder you watch 'Fockers.' You can't spell and you're about as funny as child rape. What the hell are you going on about? For the record, I bitch like this at work too (I manage a movie theater) and surprisingly, I don't get in trouble. It's what happens when you have one iota of intelligence: you can defend your opinions passionately. Stupid people get confused and rather than report you to the boss, they assume you're right. As for those MST sessions you had, I bet they were a barrel of laughs, what with the fine tuned sarcasm and wit you've honed over the years. Keep those "comedy" bits coming. Junk like that makes one wonder why you couldn't have been the load your mother swallowed.

    by antonphd

    You manage a movie theater? THAT explains a lot. I worked at movie theaters thru college. The good ol' days. Funny, tonight out of the blue I get a phone call from a theater a few towns away for an interview based on an application I did so long ago that I can't remember. They offered full time at minimum wage but all the free movies after they are out for a week. It was hard to resist. That is not a crack at you being a manager. Just a funny weird thing that happened tonight. So, do you guys think that you smell blood or what? :) Do you want a pussy fight over a thread? We could try to outsmart and outtalk each other! Come on. Let's have some fun. Better YET! Why don't you come to a chat room and see how you do. I don't use the internet much for more than a couple movie sites and game sites and work, so, I don't know where to go, but I imagine that there are places. Yahoo used to do chatrooms 5-6 years ago last I checked. Lets have a real conversation about movies. Come on. Let's have some fun. I promise that I'm not a guy pretending to be a guy pretending to be a girl pretending to be a guy pretending to be a goat!

    Wow. Did I offend you or something? You are starting to sound pissed. I was trying to say that you were right about my going overboard, you know. I was tired and being a dickhead. Geesh! You guys take being scolded too serious!

I WANT TO TALK ABOUT SHIT I DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT!! Not sit around being bored. Damn ADHD.

    by cherrycola

    I&#39;ve never seen "meet the parents" nor "meet the fockers". Am I missing something here? Is it nothing but ben stiller acting a fool and getting hit in the &#39;nards? If it is then I&#39;m not missing much. Ditto for "meet the little focker"

  • July 12, 2005, 2:10 a.m. CST

    After "meet the little focker"...whats next???

    by cherrycola

    "Focker 4: Electric Boogaloo". Sorry, It&#39;s lame I know. But no one has said it yet.

  • Harvey Fierstein will be the Gay Lamaze teacher, Robin Williams will reprise his Russian Doctor routine from that lame "9 months" movie, Ally McBeal will be thrown in and trip seeing the dancing baby Focker, and Philip Seymour Hoffman will play a sexually confused male nurse harboring feeling for DeNiro. Score.

  • July 12, 2005, 3:52 a.m. CST

    Just to add my two cents: Meet the Fockers was shit

    by BarrelRider

    Another example of how Americans mistakenly think Jewish humor is the peak of hilarity. Don&#39;t get me wrong, it can be good, but MTF was a lazy, lazy piece of shit. How could it possibly have made enough money to justify a sequel?

    Sith Witch: The 1992 version

    by Billy Goat

    http://imdb.com/title/tt0104844/ I&#39;ve wanted to see this forever. From what I&#39;ve heard, it&#39;s much more surreal, like you&#39;d expect from Emo Philips. And by the end of the movie, several people end up dead as a result of the Focker character&#39;s innocent bad luck. When&#39;s it coming out on DVD? Eh? Anyone? Please?
