In-laws, The

Peter Falk and Alan Arkin make for a hilarious dream team in this beloved American sidesplitter. Directed by Arthur Hiller from an ingenious script by Andrew Bergman, The In-Laws may at first seem like a generic meet-the-parents comedy, as Arkins mid-mannered dentist suspiciously eyes Falks volatile mystery man, whose son is engaged to his daughter. But soon, through a series of events too serpentine and surprising to spoil, the two men are brought together by a dangerous mission that takes them from Suburban New Jersey to Honduras. Fueled by elaborate stunt work and the laconic naturalistic charms of its two stars, The In-Laws deserves its status as a madcap classic- and has continued to draw ardent fans in the years since its release.
