Added DiffLines:

* AnachronismStew: in the third film Jack uses MySpace to find pictures of Andy and Greg at the meeting, in 2010. Nobody was using Myspace anymore in 2010. This is likely due to ''Little Fockers'' having been on TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment for a year.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: Even though the film takes place in the pre-9/11 era (barely) and Greg was at the end of his rope, saying "bomb" on an airplane was pretty stupid on his part.

* AllTakeAndNoGive: Jack's Circle of Trust, despite it's intentions, is unfortunately this. Jack expects the select few in the circle to be utterly honest, but he cannot keep his suspicions in check.

* VitriolicBestBuds: Jack and Greg seem to have setled into this by the third film. There are even signs by the second one, as it's mentioned that He and Greg went hunting together.

Added DiffLines:

* TheAce: Kevin. He is everything Greg isn't - namely rich, successful, on good terms with Jack, and a devout born-again Christian. In the third film, he becomes a {{BrokenAce}}.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The television airings of ''Meet the Fockers'' use video editing to remove the nipple from the tool Jack Byrnes made to feed his grandson Little Jack with - an exact cast of Little Jack's mother's breast. Considering that Jack explicitly says that his purpose for making the false breast was to avoid Little Jack having any "nipple confusion" when being bottle-fed, removing the nipple entirely defeats the purpose of the apparatus existing.

* AshesToCrashes: Greg breaks the urn containing the ashes of Jack's beloved mother trying to open a wine bottle. To make it much worse, Mr. Jinx mistakes the resulting pile for a litter box.
