I wonder if the producers named this movie this name on purpose. My ears really perked up when I first heard the TV promo ad for it on primetime network TV. I work in a nursing home and the big screen TV was on during meal time this past weekend. A few of the old folks looked up when the baritone-voiced announcer mentioned the name.  Laugh out loud

It is a sequel to Meet The Parents where Ben Stiller's character's last name is Fokker. I'm sure at the time the writers thought it was funny but moved on to focus on other items in the script. When the name took off and the movie grossed well at box office, it seemed approprate to have a sequel where we get to meet his folks called Meet the Fokkers.

Of interest, to the trivia mined, Streisands' understudy from "Funny Girl" wanted to play the roll of Stillers mother, but didn't get the part.

5 points to anyone who know who it was?
