The second sequel to 2000's Meet the Parents defines uncalled for. Little Fockers is upchuckingly unfunny. After nearly overdosing on Viagra, Robert De Niro gets it up. The movie never does.

The plot? Ben Stiller's Greg and wife Pam (Teri Polo) are prepping a 5th birthday party for their twins (cue the pee-poop-puke jokes). De Niro's Jack, the ex-CIA guy and Greg's pop-in-law, arrives with wife Blythe Danner to celebrate. Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand, as Greg's parents, just phone in it — literally. I'm falling asleep writing this. Director Paul Weitz, taking the reins from Jay Roach (who wised up and moved on after two of these fock-ups), seems equally narcotized. If there is another sequel, it better be called Fock the Fockers.

    “Vans”

    The Pack | 2006

    Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
