Little Fockers might need some help from Dustin Hoffman

Aug. 4, 2010by:

Word on the street is that LITTLE FOCKERS isn't screening so well.

A couple of days ago, Deadline reported that FOCKERS wasn't in need of re-shoots, but rather a week of pick-ups with the entire cast. Pick-ups are basically minor shots filmed in order to add to footage that was already shot.

Then to take matters further, they had also considered replacing director Paul Weitz with producer/writer John Hamburg. Yikes. Ultimately they decided against that idea.

Now Vulture is reporting that Dustin Hoffman is in talks with Universal to come back and shoot a few new scenes. This might be problem as Hoffman is currently filming on his new HBO series, LUCK which is an organized-crime drama set in the world of horse racing.

The trailer for LITTLE FOCKERS debuted at the end of June and brought the same gags to grab some laughs. We received an early review of the film in June which said it was rather enjoyable and also mentioned that if you were a fan of the first two films, that the third would definitely be something for you to see.

Can Dustin Hoffman save the FOCKERS?

Extra Tidbit: I could never imagine another Captain Hook after Hoffman played the role. "Don't you dare try to stop me this time, Smee!"

Unpopular opinion...

I think you guys are romanticizing Hook. It is ok. Nothing more, nothing less. Julia Roberts is an embarrassing Tinker Bell and the whole Rufio story line is cringe worthy. Ask anyone who was your current age when Hook came out if it is a good movie. Or if Hoffman was particularly good in it. Just because it was good when you were 8...Bob Hoskins was a good Smee though. And for the record, I was 6 when it came out, and did see it in theaters, and do love Spielberg, so I'm not bitter. And oh

The Boo Box

The extra tidbit made me smile, as the other night I got in a drunken debate claiming that HOOK was the best Spielberg movie of the past 20 years. Remembered much later that Jurassic Park and Schindlers List followed after HOOK....still, it's f-in' awesome!!

EXTRA TIDBIT

Hoffman made the second film. I would love to see him return. As for the extra tidbit, I just watched Hook for the first time in years and I loved it even more. He was hilarious in that movie. Kudos Niki.

I want to see "Luck" instead!

The last Focker movie was pretty lame IMO. However Hoffman in a show about Horseracing, sounds like a blast of a show. Ever since I watched the show "Jockeys" thanks streaming Netflix, I've been hooked to get more out of that world.

They should have casted Jerry Stiller as Greg's dad in the second film. I liked Dustin Hoffman but you can't beat Jerry Stiller. Just imagine him yelling at Robert Deniro "YOU BROUGHT A DAMN CAT TO MY SON'S WEDDING?!!!!" it would have been classic

Not screening well? Wow with a name like "Little Fockers," how would that be possible? Amazing.

Meet The Parents was a great, funny movie. Meet The Fockers was funny, but not as good. The best part of Fockers was Dustin Hoffman. Him being in this would be a good idea. I think he is one of the best parts of this franchise.

Extra Tidbit

Whoever did the make-up for Hook deserved an Oscar, the first few times I saw that movie I never knew it was Hoffman. Granted I was a kid at the time, but I watched it a lot and still never realized it until I was older.

I thought the underrated Jason Issacs did a good job as Hook in that Peter Pan movie from a few years ago, but I agree that nothing tops Hoffman's performance.

Hopefully it's as good as the first and better than the second.

Also this "Hoffman is currently filming on his new HBO series, LUCK which is an organized-crime drama set in the world of horse racing." ....sounds cool!

Hoffman the Great!

Without Dustin, I have no interest in this movie. I hated the first movie but Hoffman made the second a lot of fun.

As for HOOK..."Smee..get up off your ass and try to stop me!"
