Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Everything sly and low-key about The In-Laws, a 1979 comedy about a dentist and a rogue CIA agent with nothing in common except that the son of one is marrying the daughter of the other, is supersized and coarsened in Andrew Fleming's remake.
Rotten: If it's hot this weekend, and your air conditioner is broken, you could do worse. Otherwise, audience annulment proceedings will probably begin in a week or two.
Rotten: This In-Laws isn't a disaster, it's just not very good.
Rotten: Humdrum direction fails to elevate an already bankrupt idea from its relentless doldrums.
very funny movie, but the story sort of expanded a little too much (sort of like Meet the Foulkers) and in some places they exagerated it
Fun for the Family
I enjoyed this movie greatly. I thought that the characters were funny and the movie was well acted. Albert Brooks, Michael Douglas, Candice Bergen, and Ryan Reynolds are a great acting team that made this movie a worthwhile past time.
Very good comedy
It's a great light hearted comedy. Micheal douglas role is almost as class as Gordon gecko. And Albert brooks is one of the coolest foot doctors ever
