In the 2003 DVD commentary, Alan Arkin relates that Marlon Brando once told him he had seen 'The In-Laws' 20 times, and even imitated Arkin's delivery of certain lines from the film. Writer Andrew Bergman concurs that Brando's appreciation of his script was integral to getting Brando to star in The Freshman (1990). See more »

This movie is absolutely hysterical. And I do not mean very funny. I mean it is hysterical.
The plot is that a CIA operative and a dentist, played superbly and respectively by Peter Falk and Alan Arkin, are about to become in-laws because their two children are to be married. But Falk, about to retire from his clandestine duties, needs Arkin's help to pull off one final mission. From beginning to end the antics of these two will leave you in side-splitting humor. And the performance by Richard Libertini as a South American dictator is equal to Falk and Arkin's contribution to this classic comedy.
If you want to see an intelligent and realistic film that is extremely funny from start to finish then this is it. Don't miss it!
