The makers and stars behind the runaway hit of 2000, "Meet the Parents," are re-united in the follow-up comedy, "Meet the Fockers".
Now that Greg Focker (Stiller) is "in" with his soon-to-be in-laws, Jack (De Niro) and Dina Byrnes, it looks like smooth sailing for him and his fiancée, Pam (Polo). But that's before Pam's parents meet Greg's parents, the Fockers. The hyper-relaxed Fockers and the tightly-wound Byrneses are woefully mismatched from the start, and no matter how hard Greg and Pam try, there is just no bringing their families together--which all adds up to a disastrously funny time of "getting to know you."
Meet the Fockers is directed by Jay Roach and produced by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Roach. The screenplay is written by Jim Herzfeld and John Hamburg. It is executive-produced by Nancy Tenenbaum and Amy Sayres. The film is a Universal Pictures/DreamWorks Pictures co-production and is distributed domestically by Universal Pictures, with DreamWorks Pictures handling the international distribution.
