Meet the Fockers

Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Extended Version
Release: Jun 21, 2014 - Author: Buster - Translator: DaxRider123 - external link: IMDB
In "Meet the Parents", male nurse Greg Focker had quite a hard time to convince his Ex-CIA stepdad-to-be Jack Byrnes that he is the right man for the latters' daughter Pam. In the sequel "Meet the Fockers", Greg runs into even more problems. Jack wants to meet Greg's parents. Since they already have a date for the wedding, Jack and his wife Dina accompany the young couple as they head for Florida to go to Greg's parents. The prudish Byrnes finally meet the very unconventional Fockers, i.e. the freethinking sexual therapist Roz and her excentric and broad-minded husband Bernie. For some reason, Greg's husbands do not seem to get along with Jack and Chaos is inevitable.


It is hard do say why they took out the following scenes for the Theatrical Version. It cannot be a rating issue, after all, those scenes would still be okay for a PG-13 rating. The additional/extended scenes along with bloopers and deleted scenes can be found in a separate file on the DVD. Depending on which version you pick in the menu, they will be included at the respective part of the movie or not. You will recognize the additions by their image quality which is worse than the rest of the movie.


For this report we compared the PG-13 Theatrical Version with the PG-13 Extended Version (both included on the US DVD released by Universal Studios).

Jack: "Have you been drinking, Focker?"
Greg: "What? No. You kidding?"
Jack: "No, I'm not kidding, Greg."
Greg: "Wait, yes. No, no, no, I had a-- had a little glass of champagne on the plane because they bumped us up to first class. Yeah. Yeah. But the flight was two hours and the body metabolizes alcohol in an hour or so. I was fine to drive the rental car. Yeah, but that's why you might have detected a hint of alcohol in my breath. But I would never drink and drive, Jack."
Jack: "Thanks, Greg. I missed his over-explanations."

Baby Jack is hungry and needs some food. Since his mother is out of the house at the moment, his grandfather Jack Byrnes takes care of things.

The scene where they try to explain it away was cut out of the Theatrical Version.

Greg: "What? I'm... No, Jack just asked me to touch his Mannary Gland to feel how soft it is, that's all."

During their first joint dinner, Greg's father insists on showing the rest an old family photo album. He simply kept everything from Greg's childhood and put it in the album. One of the collected pieces is Greg's foreskin after the circumcision. Of course, Greg gets pretty embarassed about all of this and tries to get a hold of the album. However, he uses a little too much force and the foreskin flies out of the album. In the Extended Version you can see how Greg can just hinder it from landing in Jack's mouth. However, it falls right into the fondue.

Jack: "I understand that. I want my kids to feel the same way about me."
Bernie: "Really?"
Jack: "Really."
Bernie: "I guess we all have our meshugaas."
Jack: "What does that mean?"
Bernie: "You know, our little issues. The truth is when I get pumped up, it's--it's hard to hold me down. I have testosterone like bull's."
