Summary
The Film, Meet the Fockers, is the sequel to the movie Meet the Parents. Gaylord “Greg” Focker and his fiancée Pam Byrnes decided to introduce their parents to each other. They first fly to Oyster Bay, to pick up Pam’s father, retired CIA operative Jack Byrnes, her mother Dina and one-year-old nephew Little Jack. Instead of going to the airport as planned, Jack decides to drive the family to Miami to meet the Fockers in his new RV.

Meanwhile, Roz, Bernie, and Dina realize Pam is pregnant, but promise not to tell Jack.
