A lot's changed since the first teaser for Meet the Parents 3 went online, not least the eleventh-hour, post-test-screening addition of Dustin Hoffman to the cast. Here then, is the trailer for the newly rejigged and revised Little Fockers, More cast! More jokes! More opportunities for Robert De Niro to make Ben Stiller feel uncomfortable!
You'll know the score by now if you've seen either of the other two films. The detente between De Niro and Stiller has once again given way to hostilities, and De Niro is watching Stiller, and Stiller is watching De Niro watching him. With his eyes.
The added ingredient this time is, of course, children, allowing all sorts of set-ups for hilariously inappropriate gags in front of the kids. There are copious Focker puns, obviously, and some business with a prototype erectile dysfunction drug and an intimate injection. You know, the type of shenanigans that go on between most guys and their fathers-in-law. There's even a Godfocker joke. Is this De Niro's shot at The Freshman? Hit or miss?
Aside from De Niro, Stiller and Hoffman, Little Fockers stars series regulars Barbra Streisand, Teri Polo, Blythe Danner and Owen Wilson, plus newbies Jessica Alba, Laura Dern and Harvey Keitel. Paul Weitz directed John Hamburg's script, and Jay Roach produced. It's out in the series' traditional Christmas slot on December 22.
