** This is likely due to ''Little Fockers'' having been on TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment for a year.

* 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.

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

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Owen Wilson's character in the first movie.



* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: Jack encourages Greg to test out the new safety glass on his RV by hurling a brick at it. Greg does as he's told. It bounces right off the window, and smashes the windshield on Greg's car.
** The best part of the gag is Greg refusing to buy insurance for the car (its a rental) on the basis that [[TemptingFate he wouldn't need it]], and Jack's response to the windshield breaking is "Ah, well, your rental insurance will cover it."
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Owen Wilson's character in the first movie.



* 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.

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

* 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.
* FirstInstallmentWins / {{Sequelitis}}: The first movie was considered by many as "the funniest comedy of its years". 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 RobertDeNiro said his only reason to work for it was money.

** Jack too: a JerkWithAHeartofGold who sincerely has Pam's best interests at heart, or just a manipulative, domineering bully who likes to control other people (including his family)?

* DeaderThanDisco: InUniverse, in the third film Jack uses MySpace to find pictures of Andy and Greg at the meeting, in 2010. Why didn't the filmmakers have him use FaceBook instead?

** Actually, the squick really starts when you realize that Jack evidently spent quite some time [[spoiler:somehow taking a cast of his own daughter's breast - which wasn't even necessary. The baby would have probably been fine with a generic fake breast or, you know, a bottle.]]
