- Synopsis / Plot
- In 1979, Alan Arkin and Peter Falk starred in the classic comedy THE IN-LAWS, in which Arkin played a timid dentist who gets involved in dangerous government intrigue--or with the ravings of a lunatic--when he meets Vincent Ricardo (Falk), the father of the man Arkin's daughter is going to marry. That hysterical situation is back with Andrew Fleming's riotous remake, with Albert Brooks as Jerry Peyser, a podiatrist who gets more than he ever could have bargained for when his daughter, Melissa (Lindsay Sloane), gets engaged to Mark (Ryan Reynolds), whose father, Steve Tobias (Michael Douglas), claims to be a spy and involves Jerry in some very questionable--and very funny--situations. Douglas and Brooks make a great comedic duo. The outstanding cast in this wild romp also includes Candice Bergen as Judy, the mother of the groom; Maria Nicossa as Katherine, the mother of the bride; and David Suchet as Jean-Pierre Thibodoux, a villain who believes Jerry to be criminal mastermind Fat Cobra.
