Editorial Reviews

Family matters. Laughing matters. They're all a matter of laugh or death as Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks play opposites thrust together by their children's wedding and by CIA agent Douglas' involvement in an arms-smuggling sting operation, plunging mild-mannered podiatrist Brooks into the world of international intrigue.

4.0 out of 5 stars The In-Laws August 13, 2008
Format:DVD
Both versions are great and worth comparing. I remembered the first version with Alan Arkin & Peter Falk from years ago when I first enjoyed seeing that movie, and was equally impressed with the new version with Michael Douglas & Albert Brooks where the storyline has been brought up to modern day. David Suchet (from the Poirot series) is fantastic as the villain.

A good movie is a like a good book, a means to escape. The older I get, the more I enjoy watching something that is just plain funny. I don't want to be sad, I don't want to have to concentrate on a movie with a lot of metaphors and hidden meanings. I don't want murders, rapes, heart breaks or pain and suffering. Sometimes it's fun to watch a movie that is just pure entertainment and THE IN-LAWS fits the bill. Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks play the fathers of a couple who are about to be married. The only problem is that the dull, neurotic, germ obsessed, fanny pack wearing foot doctor becomes involved with CIA agent Douglas's secret life. Here begin laughs that don't stop until the movie is over. In fact, I laughed until I cried and trust me, it is wonderful to be that happy! What an escape!

2.0 out of 5 stars Quality remake.... of "Meet the Parents" May 12, 2003
Why? Why why why?
Well, there are positives to get out of the way first. Albert Brooks is an inspired choice to recreate Alan Arkin's role from the original "In-Laws". He brings to every movie a fully-formed nebbish ready to let loose 6 or 7 really memorable zingers, and this was no exception. Michael Douglas has played a very wide range of stock characters, if not necessarily deep. And the original "In-Laws" certainly wasn't technically perfect: it suffered from atrocious film editing. Why not spruce it up with some CGI submarines, more expansive stunt sequences, and a Paul McCartney soundtrack?
Most of the changes in the remake, however, don't make sense. Brooks is playing a Chicago podiatrist, not a Manhattan dentist. Michael Douglas has been saddled with a female sidekick, the likes of which Peter Falk didn't need. There's considerable more emphasis placed on Brooks's daughter and Douglas's son... so they can argue at length about his pre-marital flings. Candice Bergen has a strenuously unfunny cameo as Douglas's ex-wife (Falk was happily married in the original, albeit to a wife who had no idea what he did for a living).
Most noticeably, the witty humor of the original is all but gone, save for a few Brooks gags. That's all been replaced by a wide variety of warmed-over sex and toilet jokes, which have been funny in a hundred other movies since "The In-Laws" came out, and which are so familiar here that you'll laugh at the joke before it's even finished. Indeed, with the main character being a nebbishy Jewish medical professional from Chicago, and his co-star an over-the-top CIA agent, you'll quickly realize that this is a remake of "Meet the Parents" more than anything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inlaws August 29, 2011
By ep4me
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I didn't know I was getting 2 dvds, that was a nice surprise. That said, I am glad that it was included because I wouldn't give a dime for the new version. I really like Mike Douglas, but this was really beneath him. The first Inlaws was hilarious. Highly recommend the first. the second is a waste of time. So the 5 stars is for the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Falk At His Best. July 29, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Movie Is A Classic, But The Remake Blows Goats. Peter Falk Was Just ON FIRE In This Role. He Made His Acting Look Effortless, And Carried The Movie The Way All Good Actors Do.

5.0 out of 5 stars The In-Laws Double Feature dvd May 28, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Both movies are terrific...getting them both on one dvd is a great idea...both versions have comic merit...think of it as a play with two different casts and not a re-make...this movie didn't need re-making but both versions are valid...and remember...SERPENTINE!...

1.0 out of 5 stars don't bother. February 29, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Remakes have it tough; everyone who's a fan of the original will be hypercritical of any shortcoming. Lots of other reviewers on this site have blasted this remake as falling far short of the hysterical 1979 Alan Arkin-Peter Falk film, and I, for one, am willing to take the 15 yards for piling on.
Really, if you liked the original, stay the heck away from this ill-begotten travesty. Brooks is funny at times, Douglas isn't, and the magic just isn't there. Sorry, Hollywood, you blew it on this one. What's next--a remake of 'Casablanca' with Matthew Perry and Jennifer Aniston?
