I watched Meet the Fockers last night and it’s weird: the movie seems to have an IC but not an MC.
Is there a reason you wouldn’t say Greg was the MC?
Edit: I just realised I’m thinking of meet the parents
Yes, exactly. In the sequel (Meet the Fockers) there are a bunch of conflicts floating around (Parents have to meet and get along, don’t tell them I’m pregnant, etc) but it’s not like the first one.
From vague memory it wasn’t great. It would have been cool if they’d made the de Niro character a clear MC but instead it’s like they kept the audience identified with Greg but really he has very little story in the sequel…
Yes! Exactly. They wanted us with Greg but didn’t give him an MC role, and De Niro wasn’t the MC either.
And I kept waiting and watching for it to be great … leaving a lesson learned about too much complication.
