Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Pam should've told Greg how horrible her father is soon as her relationship with him got serious. But she withheld this vital information for years.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationDisplacement: Very few people are aware that ''Meet the Parents'' was based on an independent film from 1992 that Creator/StevenSpielberg bought the remake rights to. It doesn't help matters that this earlier film has rarely been distributed.

* MoralEventHorizon: Jack drugging Greg with truth serum in the second film was definitely stepping over the line. Even his own wife, who tolerated his insanity all this time, wouldn't support him after that came out.

* TheWoobie: Greg - nothing EVER goes right for him and his father-in-law is near impossible to please. His AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents don't make it much better, either.

** Worse yet. In the first movie NONE of Pam's family members and friends, with the exepcion of Dina and Kevin, finds him sympathetic at all.

* 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.



* FirstInstallmentWins / {{Sequelitis}}: The first movie was considered by many as "the funniest comedy of the year". The second one received mixed reviews, with some saying it was better than the first one, and others saying it was worse (making it a ContestedSequel). The third movie was universally panned by critics, and Creator/RobertDeNiro said his only reason to work for it was money.



* [[HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Act]]: Creator/JessicaAlba is arguably the only cast member of the third movie to make any kind of effort.

* 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.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Jessica Alba, in amongst the bonanza of phoning it in and MoneyDearBoy acting that is ''Little Fockers''.

* HarsherInHindsight: The MistakenForTerrorist scene in the first movie would be a lot less funny in a movie that came out after 9/11.
