Meet the Fockers
The first thing that I would like to discuss is the families difference in professions and what it is that they do. Jack works for the CIA and this career can be very hard on the whole family. Dina Byrnes is a stay at home mom and this in itself is a hard thing to do and with a husband in the CIA it makes life very difficult for them both and their children. While both of these people have a hard outer shell inside they really do care about their kids and each other. The Fockers are the complete opposite in almost every way. Rozalin is a sex therapist that specializes in senior citizens and because of this it makes the relationship that her and Bernie have. Bernie became a stay at home dad after their son was born and this opened open their relationship more because he was there all of the time. I know that it seems obvious how their career differences impacted their lives but even so the Fockers and the Byrnes are just as loving but they show it in different ways.
The second thing that I would like to discuss is the difference in their personalities and what it is that make them act that way. Jack is a paranoid, control freak and the perfect example of that is when he gave Greg a truth serum shot so he could get out of him what he wanted. Jacks paranoia is one of the biggest things that separate these families because the Fockers are open. Bernie is a little crazy, and outspoken but he is kind and he is generous and that even amplifies the differences because Jack is the complete opposite because he can not even get close to being open about things. The women of the families are also very different because Dina is a stay at home mom who hardly ever speaks and seems to be afraid to voice her opinions at points but Rozalin works and she is so out spoken that sometimes it is a little inappropriate. The biggest personality difference is that the Byrnes are hard core in every way and the Fockers are extremely relaxed and the reason that I say this is the biggest is because it is the root of everything else because if they were a little more either way they would be extremely alike.
The last difference that I would like to discuss is the families lifestyles and how much of a difference that there is. The Byrnes family is a more traditional family they live in a way that says we are old fashion and the Fockers are completely different. The Fockers are more eccentric they leave as if they have no worries in the world and that everything is always perfect. The differences in lifestyle is very apparent by the homes that they live in. The Byrnes family house is the house that everyone imagines when they are young it is a huger two story house that is comfortable for almost anyone to live in. The house that the Fockers live in is a house that I do not think anyone could imagine this house is made for people that are a little bit different. This proves the difference that the two families have and the reason that they have such a hard time at getting along at first.
The family differences are great but the two kids love each other enough that they are willing to get past them for each other and I think that this is admiral. What these differences prove is that no matter what difference the families may have the people that are getting together sometimes have the best relationships because of those differences. I hope that the explanations that I have given show that these families have a lot of differences that they needed to get through and I hope that everyone enjoyed my paper.In this movie two families meet for the first time and they realizes just how different they are. The Byrnes family and the Fockers family are both well meaning but they are definitely the most different that two families can get even though their kids are so much alike. There are three things specifically that I will be focusing on during this paper and they are the professions in the families, their personalities, and their lifestyles.
