Aux États-Unis, dans le Massachusetts des années 1980, Joy est une jeune mère célibataire de deux enfants, qui doit également faire tourner une maison dans laquelle son ex-mari, chanteur de cabaret, vit au sous-sol et sa mère passe la journée devant des soap operas. Son père Rudy, responsable d'un garage de camions, débarque un beau jour, rejeté par sa compagne et doit cohabiter avec son ex-gendre qu'il n'apprécie guère. Il part à la recherche d'une nouvelle conquête, et rencontre rapidement Trudy, veuve fortunée. À l'occasion d'une sortie sur le voilier de Trudy, Joy doit nettoyer les verres de vin brisés sur le pont en teck. Cela lui donne l'idée d'un balai-serpillère auto-essorant. Dans le garage de son père et avec l'aide financière de Trudy, elle monte un atelier d'assemblage, à partir de pièces qu'elle trouve à faire fabriquer en Californie. Une relation de son ex-mari lui permet de rencontrer Neil Walker, directeur d'une toute nouvelle activité télévisuelle de vente de produits. Joy convainc Neil et obtient la présentation de son balai par le présentateur vedette de la chaîne de télé-achat. Mais l'essai en direct est un fiasco total. Joy revient à la charge et arrache de pouvoir présenter elle-même son produit : le succès est alors au rendez-vous.

Gaylord "Greg" Focker (Stiller) is preparing to celebrate his twins' fifth birthday party. Things seem to go awry when Greg's father-in-law Jack Byrnes (De Niro) visits. Recently, Jack has been diagnosed with a heart condition and become embittered by his daughter Debbie's divorce from her husband, Bob (whose marriage was the social event in the first film and how Jack and Greg met), for cheating on her with a nurse. Jack's plan was originally to name Bob as his successor as head of the Byrnes family, but decides to pass the role to Greg, naming him "The Godfocker." Despite Greg reluctantly accepting the role, Jack begins to suspect Greg of infidelity when he sees him with a drug representative, Andi Garcia (Alba), who openly flirts with him, and the presence of Sustengo erection pills in Greg's house, which prompts Jack to think Greg is no longer sexually attracted to his wife, Pam (Polo). Furthermore, Jack starts to doubt Greg's ability to provide for his family when he appears reluctant to send his children to a private school.

Near the completion of his sentence in Sing Sing prison, Paul Vitti's life is threatened by assassins and corrupt guards while incarcerated. He fakes insanity and starts singing showtunes from West Side Story to get the attention of Ben Sobel, who previously hung up on him while attending his father's funeral. The FBI calls in Ben to see if Vitti is really insane. This appears to be the case, and the FBI approves Ben taking Vitti out of prison, into his own custody, for further therapy. On their way out in Sobel's car, Vitti reveals that he faked it. Needing some therapy himself after his father's death, a grieving Sobel talks Vitti into finding a regular job (as requested by the FBI). Vitti attempts to find a legitimate job (he tries a car dealer, a restaurant, and a jewelry store), but his rude manners and paranoia only complicate things further (which end up in him getting fired each time).

Scott (Charlie Hofheimer), a 17-year-old kid, runs away from home with his girlfriend, Nikki (Haylie Johnson). His mother Collette (Nastassja Kinski), visits her ex-boyfriend, lawyer Jack Lawrence (Billy Crystal) and tells him that Scott is really his son and wants him to find him, to which he refuses. Writer Dale Putley (Robin Williams) is planning suicide when he gets a phone call from Collette, whom he is also another ex-boyfriend, and she tells him the same story and wants him found, to which he accepts. Realizing that his appointment with a client will make him stay over night, Jack changes his mind and decides to find Scott, starting with Russ (Charles Rocket), the father of Scott's girlfriend, where he and Dale meet. Thinking their sons are together, they go to the Marina to meet Scott's girlfriend's mother, Shirley (Patti D'Arbanville), and learn that they went following rock band Sugar Ray. But when she asks for a picture of their sons, and it is learned that Jack and Dale have been told the same story that they're Scott fathers and call to confront Collette. She confesses that she doesn't know, but begs them to find Scott then they'll settle the situation. The two agree and they head for Sacramento where they find Scott, drunk and lovestruck. Soon after, they bring him back to their hotel room, and the next day, Scott wakes up to the news of who they are and what's going on, and he doesn't take it lightly. While Dale watches him alone, Scott escapes by pouring coffee over Dale's testicles. Dale gets in touch with Jack and they head to Reno, where Sugar Ray is now at. In Reno, Scott meets up with Nikki and the gang they're hanging out with at a hotel, until he meets two drug dealers that he once took a job for involving $5,000 (to which he spent that money buying Nikki a necklace). He manages to escape but soon gets hit by a car, driven by Jack and Dale. Now with a broken arm, Scott demands Dale and Jack to leave him alone. But later that night, Scott opens up with why he ran away, and that it's because of Nikki; she's his first love, but his parents disapprove of her, and they argue. They start getting along, then Scott tells them about the drug dealers, so they decide to help him. They go back to the hotel with Scott in the car, but when Jack and Dale go inside, the two drug dealers spot Scott and attempt to kidnap him and later kill him until Scott takes off with Jack's rental car. Jack returns outside, sees the car gone, and assuming Scott had been lying to them the whole time, calls it quits and decides to go home. Just then, Jack's wife Carrie (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is at the hotel, following Jack (and Dale) because she's been confused and concerned given Jack's odd behavior. He tells her the truth about Scott, and that he could be the father, and the news sends both of them out of the hotel. Later, Jack and Carrie have an argument over the fact that Jack, having negative feelings of Scott and his actions, makes her scared over how he'll react with his own child. Jack sees her point, and arrives at a Sugar Ray concert where Dale is also there finding Scott. They find him again, and watch as he confronts his girlfriend, to which she breaks up with him. Now heartbroken, Scott is then grabbed by the drug dealers, to which Dale and Jack fight them and soon a huge fight erupts within the crowd. Freed from jail, Jack, Dale, and Scott head home where Collette and his father Bob (Bruce Greenwood) embrace with their son. Collette tells the truth to Scott that neither Jack nor Dale are the father, but Scott understands what happened because his parents wanted him home so bad. Scott then lies to both Jack and Dale, separately and privately, that they're the father, right before they leave. Jack figured out that Scott lied, but isn't mad but is rather happy as it has given him a new outlook over having children. Dale, riding in Jack's car, spots a woman having car trouble on her way to the airport. Upon finding out that Virginia (Mary McCormack) is single, takes a shot and decides to take her to her destination by car, much to Jack's annoyance.
