Meet the Fockers (2004)

Holy crap is this movie ever not funny. I mean, I think the first film is grossly overrated, but at least it had a couple of chuckles. This demonic turd, though, can't get a laugh no matter how hard it tries (and boy, does it try). To watch this is to wonder whether director Jay Roach ever knew a damned thing about comedic timing, since his film exhibits none (maybe Austin Powers was a fluke, or maybe Mike Myers was ghost-directing). Even the reliable Tim Blake Nelson, who shows up in a late-film cameo, can't wring anything out of the lame material handed him. This is basically a bad two-hour sitcom and a depressing waste of numerous talents. Tell you what -- I'm going to pretend I didn't see this.

Grade: D
