I realize I'm behind the curve but we just went and saw it. My God it was hilarious. One of the few sequels as good as the original IMO.

We've been Fockerized.

Forgot to add:

I wonder if there is anyone out there really called Gaylord Focker? If there is...they have to be American!

Like when they had to actually find a Pussy Galour (and they did...guess where?) for Goldfinger!

I haven't seen it yet, but got a free t-shirt from a trade show my dad went to recently.

The name Focker (in different varieties) is fairly common in the Netherlands and Germany - I doubt, however, 'Gaylord' as first name :wink:

I brought home Meet the Parents. After about twenty or less minutes I shut it off and donated the DVD to the apartments library.

Gaylord is a legitimate name here. It was Focker that I thought was contrived.

Funnier now that I know there are real Fockers.

I've been Fockerized as well. I saw it last night and laughed my ass off the entire movie.

How could one ever doubt there are real Fockers? I'm sure there really are a few Martha Fockers... Somewhere Laughing

Love "Meet the Parents," and I have nearly worn out that DVD. Saw "Meet the Fockers," and while I thought it was funny, and will definitely get the DVD, my initial impression was it was not quite up to par with the original.

And for me it was the exact opposite Tico
I found "Meet the Parents" a bit boring but loved "Meet the
Fockers". This is one of the rare occasion where the
sequel is better than the original movie.

Barbra Streisand finally has found her true role again,
she's a great comedian, and should stick to that.

My 2 cents (minus salestax)

I agree she should stick to that, and keep her mouth shut when not acting.

So she should never sing again?

If she can sing without talking, that would be fine with me.

I'm not a big fan of Streisand's acting. Love "What's Up Doc" with Ryan O'Neal -- very funny. Had a group over to screen the film in the 70's and unfortunately served red wine which took another day to clean up off the floor. Didn't particularly like her Dolly, after seeing Carol Channing turn the role on state. She does have a good set of pipes however.

Of course, you know you'll never get your wish that she won't publicly speak out on politics. If she were to stop, could we possibly have Mel Gibson stop questioning the war in Iraq?

A hockey arena in Nashville is called the Gaylord centre or place or something like that. Maybe it was named after someone.

Saw Dustin Hoffman on Brit TV this morning, he said they DID have to find someone with the name before they were allowed to use it...in Canada! Laughing

They also found someone called Focking!

I had a teacher with this name.

Actually, I thing, Dutch/German (or Germanic, to be more general) names make (or better here, too, made) quite some sense to people who speak/spoke this language.

Walter,

When I was at school, we really did (people always think I'm joking) have a dentist (on York Rd in Chorlton) called Dr Frankenstein, I think he was German. It must have affected his patient list as he changed his name to Frankham.
