Composer Lalo Schifrin wrote a score that was mostly unused. However instead of hiring another composer after Schifrin left the project the director and/or producers decided to use the temp-track selections written to previous movies by various film composers and these composers got credited instead of Schifrin who went on being uncredited even if some of his work is still in the movie.

. . . meaning that a classic movie (in the case of the original 1963 Robert Wise directed 'Haunting') or solid comedy (in the case of the original 'In Laws',) has been covered by a heavy-handed, ham-fisted 'improvement' that lacks all the subtlety that made the first picture memorable.
To state the most obvious, but hardly the only, major flaw, in the original, the 'zany' father-in-law - played unimprovably by Peter Falk
was as puzzling to the audience as he was to his conservative partner
(Alan Arkin, also unimprovable). Who is he? What is he? Is he on the level? The basic movement of the plot is resolving these issues. Here, for reasons that can only be guessed at, the movie begins with a long, James Bondish chase that establishes the reality of the zany and thus gives the game away.
Both Michael Douglas (zany) and Albert Brooks (conservative) stink. The villain is characterized erratically and totally unbelievably, the wedding action makes no sense, etc., etc., etc. This is a completely worthless movie.
