Criterion Review: The In-Laws

23 August 2016 12:31 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Alan Arkin and Peter Falk send up their dramatic personae to great effect in Arthur Hiller's 1979 The In-Laws, a wonderfully balanced and often hilarious comedy that benefits from the formidable talents of its leads. Sheldon Kornpett (Arkin) is a successful dentist excited about his daughter's impending wedding. Little does he know that the father of the groom (Falk), is waist-deep in organised crime, having recently pulled off the heist of the century. Invariably, Sheldon quickly becomes tied up with his new in-law Vince's nefarious dealings, forcing the pair to go on the lam in Honduras and attempt to hawk Vince's stolen Us Mint imprints to loopy military dictator General Garcia (Richard Libertini).

Arthur Hiller (1923-2016) and "Making Love"

18 August 2016 5:22 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Arthur Hiller with his Jean Hersholt Huminatarian AwardOscar nominated Canadian born Hollywood director Arthur Hiller died yesterday at 92 years of age. Though he's best remembered for the 1970 mega-hit Love Story  -- so popular in its day it would have been equivalent to a Jurassic World at the box office today (no really) -- his career was actually quite varied. He did dramas, romances, buddy comedies, period pieces, you name it.

Among his best known films which is your favorite?

The Americanization of Emily (1964) The Out of Towners (1970) Love Story (1970) Plaza Suite (1971) Man of La Mancha (1972) Silver Streak (1976) The In-Laws (1979) Making Love (1982) Author! Author! (1982) Outrageous Fortune (1987) See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989) 

Outrageous Fortune was probably my favorite of his films - Bette Midler & Shelley Long were so funny together --  but the film that's the most interesting, historically, is Making Love as it was the very first mainstream Lgbt film. »

Daily | Arthur Hiller, 1923 – 2016

18 August 2016 7:04 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Arthur Hiller, an Academy Award-nominated director whose long career began in live television and flourished in the movies in the 1970s with crowd-pleasers like the phenomenally successful Love Story, died on Wednesday in Los Angeles," writes Dave Kehr for the New York Times. As Patrick Hipes notes at Deadline, Love Story would lead "to a streak of big movies for Hiller that spanned especially comedy including The Hospital, penned by Paddy Chayefsky (who also wrote The Americanization of Emily); Silver Streak with Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor; The In-Laws with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin; The Lonely Guy with Steve Martin; and Outrageous Fortune starring Shelley Long and Bette Midler. He also helmed the film adaptations of Neil Simon’s The Out of Towners and Plaza Suite." We're collecting remembrances. » - David Hudson »

Director Arthur Hiller, whose 'In-Laws' was a perfect comedy, dies at 92

17 August 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Arthur Hiller was never the coolest filmmaker in the room. He leaves behind a list of films that were genuinely loved by audiences and an ocean of collaborators and friends who speak of him in glowing terms, and honestly, as a storyteller, what more could anyone ask? There’s certainly some cachet in the idea that you’re breaking new ground stylistically or you’re doing things that other people are ripping off or you’re part of some formal movement of deconstructionists. I like plenty of filmmakers who chase cool like it is oxygen, necessary for their entire existence. Arthur Hiller, though, was a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and he made movies that spoke to his optimistic view of who we could be as people, shot through with just a hint of cynicism at times. My personal favorite of his movies is The In-Laws, which I just rewatched a few weeks ago. »

Canadian-born director Arthur Hiller, who spent more than a decade mostly working in television before a career in feature helming that included “Love Story,” “The Americanization of Emily” and comedy “Silver Streak,” died Wednesday. He was 92.

Review: Dwayne Johnson gets weird in surprisingly enjoyable 'Central Intelligence'

17 June 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Buddy comedies are a Hollywood staple at this point, and they’re fairly easy to execute at a baseline level of competence. Sometimes it’s a script that distinguishes one, sometimes it’s the easy chemistry between the stars, and sometimes it’s a director who elevates things. In the case of Central Intelligence, several things work better than I would have suspected, and as a result, I genuinely enjoyed the movie. Color me shocked. First and foremost, The Rock has become one of the most reliable brands in modern movies, and, yes, I am aware that I just called him a brand. I think he’s more than “just” a movie star. He’s an overall force of personality that exists to just shine positivity and humor and good energy into the world via movies, TV, wrestling, and social media. If The Rock didn’t exist, we’d have to invent him. »
