Storyline

When prospective fathers-in-law Steve Tobias and Jerry Peyser meet for the first time to celebrate their children's upcoming marriage, the cake hits the fan. Dr. Jerome Peyser is a mild-mannered podiatrist with a well-organized daily routine designed to eliminate all possible sources of stress. Meanwhile, daredevil CIA operative Steve Tobias moves through life like a heat-seeking missile. His average day consists of dodging bullets, stealing private jets and negotiating with international arms smugglers. Now he's giving potential father-of-the-bride Jerry a serious case of pre-nuptial jitters. Steve's dramatic entrances and exits, his cryptic references to a Russian runaway named Olga and his fight with a gunman in a restaurant washroom causes Jerry to see a vision of his daughter's perfectly planned wedding blowing up in his face. As far as Jerry's concerned, letting Steve into his family takes til death do us part way too literally. Before he can say the wedding is off, Jerry ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Intelligent, Wacky Fun
27 May 2003 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Premiering the same weekend as Bruce Almighty, this more cerebral and intelligent comedy maintains its own wacky pacing and outlandish plot with over the top antics that rely more on true comedic humor, especially from Albert Brooks along with the physical/dry humor of Michael Douglas. This feel-good, spy/irony comedy makes for the perfect summer getaway outing without any lavish romantic plot dominating the screen. Candice Bergman gets to play her latest incarnation of weird but loveable matron. The laughs are as belly roaring and satisfying as Bruce Almighty but in a more deeply moving way making more use of unused brain cells. Though a bit extreme in some of its hard-edged scenes and out of this world plot moments, this pre-summer still is a lot of fun. Eight out of ten stars.
