Song From the OST


  • The MPAA would not allow the name “Focker” unless the filmmakers could find an actual person with that surname.
  • Robert De Niro originally wanted to train the cat himself, but then realized that would take up several months of his life. Instead, he would carry kibble in all of his pockets, which helped him enjoy a very cooperative relationship with the animal.
  • At one time, Jim Carrey was slated to star as the lead and even contributed jokes to the screenplay, such as the main character being named “Focker”.
  • Jay Roach wanted the whole movie to feel like an “anxiety dream” for Greg.
  • Ben Stiller hated his clothes in the film. Director Jay Roach said it was all part of the plan to keep Stiller as uncomfortable as Greg.
