With the priest waiting in the wings and the minutes counting down, it may take 1,000 brides to help Jimmie discover that true meaning of love in the timeless romantic comedy critics call "...highly inventive, wildly funny..." - Jack Garner, Rochester Democrat & Chronicle

Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks are the odd couple of the CIA set in a fast, funny remake of the 1979 original. Douglas is Steve, who says he's a copier salesman but whose splashy lifestyle, not to mention the agents on his trail and the vial of nuclear material in his pocket, says otherwise. Brooks is Jerry, a podiatrist plunged feet first into Steve's world and hilariously misidentified as the infamous "Fat Cobra". For "a full-tilt onslaught of silly" (The Cincinnati Enquirer), everyone sooner or later has to meet The In-Laws.
