Editorial Reviews

Peter Falk (A Woman Under the Influence) and Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunshine) make for a hilarious dream team in this beloved American sidesplitter. Directed by Arthur Hiller (Love Story) from an ingenious script by Andrew Bergman (Blazing Saddles), The In-Laws may at first seem like a generic meet-the-parents comedy, as Arkin s mild-mannered dentist suspiciously eyes Falk s volatile mystery man, whose son is engaged to his daughter. But soon, through a series of events too serpentine and surprising to spoil, the two men are brought together by a dangerous mission that takes them from suburban New Jersey to Honduras. Fueled by elaborate stunt work and the laconic, naturalistic charms of its two stars, The In-Laws deserves its status as a madcap classic and has continued to draw ardent fans in the years since its release.
