    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+

    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.

    THE IN-LAWS ** Michael Douglas, Albert Brooks, Ryan Reynolds, Lindsay Sloane, Maria Ricossa, Candice Bergen, Robin Tunney, David Suchet. CIA operative Michael Douglas and an obsessive and phobic Chicago podiatrist Albert Brooks meet when their children are about to be married. Brooks knows immediately that there is something not quite right with Douglas and Douglas tries to downplay his life, but soon they both find themselves involved in international smuggling and very dangerous situations with shady super-criminal figures. I like Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks; they make an appealing team and were great in this film with Brooks banging out hilarious one-liners left and right ("I think my food is still eating" and "I'm sorry I called you the worst father in the world. I'm sure there's at least two or three guys who are worse.") The soundtrack is filled with cool songs like "Live and Let Die," "Get Down Tonight," "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" etc. David Suchet plays Tibideaux, the sexually-confused French smuggler, who adds just the right touch of humor and malice and manages to steal every scene he is a part of. Even Candace Bergen has a funny little supporting role. This is a fast paced, funny movie so if you're in the mood to laugh, laugh and laugh some more-- GO RENT IT NOW!!!
