Laura Dern Will Be Chasing Around Those LITTLE FOCKERS!!

Published at: Oct. 19, 2009, 10:30 a.m. CST by merrick

Merrick here...
I have mixed feelings about this one... I rather enjoyed MEET THE PARENTS when I first saw it, but found its sequel...MEET THE FOCKERS...pretty tiresome. I got the feeling they had more fun making it than we had watching it - and I didn't get the sense they had too awesome a time making it. So a third film? Not sure, at all. Nonetheless... THR says Laura Dern is joining the cast of LITTLE FOCKERS, which'll return Ben Stiller, Teri Polo, Robert De Niro, Blythe Danner and Owen Wilson.
Dern plays the headmistress of the elementary school that the Fockers' kids attend.
...says THR HERE. Jessica Alba recently joined the cast as well. THR indicates the title LITTLE FOCKERS may change. I hope it doesn't, it may prove to be the most ingenious element of the film. We'll see...

    Meet The Parents was classic

    by liljuniorbrown

    It was a funny Ben Stiller movie,which depending on your comedy taste,can be few and far between. I can admit to laughing out loud more than once on thta one. As far as the sequel goes....it kind of sucked ass. Not sure why they are beating this horse but they may want to check it's pulse.

    Little Rascals?

    by sidonie

    A couple of years ago, I jokingly thought up a scenario for the 3rd movie called Li'L Focker, the first kid they have. DeNiro was practically at the birth he was so interfering. The godfather was Mo Focker a cousin and gambler and Owen Wilson is a riverboat chaplain. Oh, well let's just see if this film pans out. Could be a send up of the Little Rascals.

  • Oct. 19, 2009, 1:17 p.m. CST

    I LOVE THOSE FOCKING MOVIES

    by BringingSexyBack

    They're the only Stiller movies I can stomache, and DeNiro is hilarious. I don't get the hate for the sequel. Hoffman and Streisand were funny as hell. I support Little Fockers.

    Fockers is too jewish for even most jews

    by Professor_Monster

    i love the way the sequel showed the jews as being in touch and well rounded while the "other" family was the one with all the problems and hang ups. And please stop trying to sell Barbara to us as sexy - she's not - never has been! From A Star is Born to fucking Brolin - she's a beeked pig.

  • Oct. 19, 2009, 1:48 p.m. CST

    I agree completely

    by Charlie_Allnut

    The 1st was just great fun, and the second was pretty bland and boring. No interest here in another. Also agree about DeNiro's career implosion. About 12 years of pure brilliance, then nothing.

    RedHorseVector...

    by DarthCorleone

    That piece of wisdom has never made sense to me. No, you don't fuck a face; you just frequnetly spend a lot of your time looking at the face while you're fucking. If visual stimulation has anything at all to do with sexual enjoyment - and it certainly does for me - than her face should matter. Does a pretty face guarantee that the woman will make for an enjoyable time in the sack? Of course not. But it's not a factor to completely discount. That said, Barbra had a pretty rocking body back in the day and more recently than one might guess.

    Dern hasn't gotten much work since Ellen

    by _V_

    Dern has stated that she thinks after doing the "coming out" episode of Ellen in the late 1990's, she was blacklisted by hollywood insiders. I think there may be at least some measure of truth to this given that she's at least a decent actress. Amazing how conservative TV was even then when Ellen came out and it was seen like a nuke going off. 10 years later the reaction would not be the same.

    Hollywood has ALWAYS been very, VERY accepting of homosexuals; even those who outted themselves. You have ALWAYS had homosexuals in the upper echelons of the studios, and in TV; that scene in the Ellen show did not hurt her career...reportedly being an insufferable bitch did.

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    Still, it's funny/odd just how desexualized most of Spielberg's films are (with the exception of Eric Bana fucking the Munich out of his wife, of course). Most directors tend to fetishize attractive actresses at least on OCCASION, but the 'Berg almost NEVER does this. Even the Jennifer Garner prostitute scene in Catch Me If You Can was weirdly chaste. That's why the shot centering on Laura Dern's nice ass in JP as she walked over a hill stood out to me.
