I don't care if it isn't over the ocean to Scranton Pennsylvania, the 1979 version might be one of Hollywood's funniest movie pairings, ever. These guys were superb together.
The movie is a little dated visually, but that is immaterial. 36 years later my wife and I are still quoting lines to each other from this film.
BTW, when Marlon Brando died, someone who knew him well reported he thought this was the funniest movie ever made. It was reported he had seen this film TEN times.
Don't miss it.
That's why I wondered why...why remake a modern classic? Bigger budget, contemporary stars? OK. This movie has its moments, and Albert Brooks does great comedy. Michael Douglas also did a credible job here. This one, though, complicates the story line, has a few too many personalities, and takes Suspension of Disbelief over the top. Moderately entertaining, and your wife will like it for Michael Douglas. IMDB: 5.7 (I'd give it 6)
I know it was an easy deal putting these two in the same package, since they were the same studio. Imagine a boxed set of all the movie versions of War of the Worlds!
2003 In-Laws: There isn't too much to say about this version except, Why? Some movies just should not be tampered with especially when everything works on the original. The chemistry, timing, and script pale in comparison. Although not horrific, it lacks the spark that made the original so enjoyable. It's an ok movie but not one that I will be watching again anytime soon.
Michael Douglas is selling a submarine named Olga, to a french criminal. You will have to see it for yourself it is absolutely funny.
KC and Sunshine band is the movie along with a few other well known actors. I have seen it many times and have it on VHS. I just buying it in the DVD version for my library. Dione L. WilliamsCrayton. July 8, 2014.
