Meet the Fockers

Continuity mistake: As they are playing football, when Bernie tackles Jack, you see Jack flying and landing in front of the gate. The left flag/marker is also in front of two trees. After they show everyone running over to Jack on the ground, he is lying way far left of his original position. Now the fence is behind him, the gate is gone, and the left flag is no longer in front of the trees. (00:54:48 - 00:54:56)

Luna Negra

Continuity mistake: In the first movie, Pam says she received a fax (MCAT scores) from Greg's parents in Detroit. We see in this movie that Greg's parents have lived in Florida for many years.


Continuity mistake: When Jack is leaving the island with LJ, there is a shot with everybody screaming for him to come back and you can see the RV has driven about six feet from Bernie's slippers. Then there's two more shots which takes up about 5-6 seconds with everyone continuing to yell. But afterwards, the RV is only about 2 feet from where it was. (01:35:40)

Continuity mistake: When LJ speaks his first word, everyone runs into Roz's office where his crib is. They show it right inside of the door. Jack then blows up at Greg when he learns it is a curse word and calls an immediate family conference. Roz, Bernie and Greg leave the room. When they show the family conference, Little Jack and the crib are now gone. (01:10:55 - 01:12:05)

Luna Negra

Continuity mistake: After Jinxy flushes Moses, in some shots the toilet seat is up beside the lid, but in the rest of the consecutive shots the seat is down. (00:36:50)

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the movie, when Bernie is going to fight Jack, Jack's hands are on his hips then in the next shot they are down.

Continuity mistake: After Bernie accidentally kicks Greg's face and then the argument starts out front by the RV, the sun is shining when either Jack is shown and/or the Fockers and Pam from their backsides but every time the Fockers and Pam's faces are shown, there is no sun on them at all (through from that angle it should be shining on their faces).

Continuity mistake: The empty rum bottle that was placed on the table in the room during the families arguing disappears after the Fockers walk out of the room.

Continuity mistake: After Jack leaves the whole group Greg phones him and then puts the phone on the table. Its position changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Bernard lies in front of the RV there's a sunny spot a meter away from his head which becomes shadowy in the close-up. This swaps back and forth.

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: From a wide angle Greg is covering his bloody nose with the palm of his hand when Roz hugs him. A shot later, in the close-up, he covers it with the side of his hand. Then there's a different angle, and afterwards it cuts back to the first wide angle with the initial palm-of-the-hand position.

More trivia for Meet the Fockers

Question: Does Sodium Pentothal really erase memories of events that happened during and after you take it?

Jason Riley

Chosen answer: It doesn't exactly erase your memories, rather it causes a form of apnea and drowsiness, causing you to be semi-concious or not fully awake, similar to blacking out. This causes you to not remember events that took place during your dosage and during the course of time it is in your bloodstream. Since it puts you in a physical and mental state where the easiest things to do are all you can manage the mental strength to do, it is used as a truth serum, since lying is much more complicated than telling the truth. Because of these properties the drug possesses, higher doses can also be used for Euthanasia, Medical Induced Comas, and even Lethal Injections.
