With its, by the standard of other early 2000s domcoms (domestic comedies, if you like), high-concept premise--mild mannered milksop must warm up to the mother of all fathers-in-law-to-be: an ex-CIA operative!--Randy Newman-scored soundtrack, and unlikely comedy pairing of Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro--the former having recently succeeded Jim Carrey as the Box Office King of Low Brow Comedy; the latter, fresh on the heels of his successful turn-against-type in the hit comedy Analyze This--Meet the Parents, a remake of the 1992 independent film vehicle for oddball stand-up comedian Emo Philips--became one of the highest grossing films of 2000.
Apparently Jessica Alba, 29, wasn't fazed by the comedy of errors in her most recent movie, Little Fockers. Now she's expecting another little one of her own. The actress took to Facebook to reveal that she and her husband Cash Warren, 32, are going to be second-time parents.
Hollywood ended 2010 with a box office whimper, with attendance dropping 27 percent compared to the last weekend of 2009. Little Fockers, starring Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro, took the number one spot, despite grossing only $26.
The Focker family is still making magic at the box office. Little Fockers, the third movie in the Ben Stiller-Robert DeNiro comedy series, took in $34 million over the three-day Christmas weekend, and $48.
