In the scene towards the end right after Travis leaves, Zack is holding up his right fist and making hand gestures after Tracy sits down next to him. The camera cuts to a different area of the room, but when it goes back to Zack, he is making the hand gestures with his left fist instead. See more »

Quotes

Walter Warner Sr.: Travis, it really tweaks my melon, to see a buff bro like Crawl here, get weezed on by a greasy scumbag like you. So you just chill.

Downright predictable fish out of water ...........
6 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frantic, somewhat mean spirited, infantile humor abounds in this city boy turned wannabe farmer tale. It is not outrageous enough to appeal to the Will Ferrell crowd, and not interesting enough to carry the feature length. The most I can praise "Son In Law" would be to say that for the most part it avoids toilet humor. The main problem is that all of the characters lack warmth, and Pauly Shore is so abrasive that he is a most unlikable hero. There are a few amusing bits involving farm animals, and that's about it. The story, what there is, is so simplistic and predictable, it makes "Jury Duty" seem like "Gone with the Wind". - MERK
