Critic Reviews for The In-Laws

All Critics (146) | Top Critics (43)

Humdrum direction fails to elevate an already bankrupt idea from its relentless doldrums.

New York Observer
Top Critic

Amazingly, the two versions have hit the casting bull's-eye twice in 24 years to provide superior entertainment.

One of the problems with The In-Laws is that it spends as much time with the uninteresting and unfunny wedding story as it does with the spy stuff.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

This movie has more misfires than hits.

Common Sense Media

Medíocre se analisada isoladamente, esta refilmagem se torna ainda mais constrangedora quando comparada ao divertido original.

April 28, 2004
Cinema em Cena

A sloppy excuse for 95 minutes of celluloid . . . Andrew Fleming's film should be outlawed for its sheer laziness alone.

Audience Reviews for The In-Laws

Unnecessary remake of a classic comedy.

Saw this a very long time ago. I remember I loved it, primarily because of Michael Doublas' hilarious performance.

Grade: C+

Matt Goodman

Super Reviewer

Oh man! I watched this because of Ryan Reynolds. But he was sorta like a special guest in it. It wasn't funny though. Don't waste your time on it.
