In 1979, Alan Arkin and Peter Falk starred in the classic comedy THE IN-LAWS, in which Arkin played a timid dentist who gets involved in dangerous government intrigue--or with the ravings of a lunatic--when he meets Vincent Ricardo (Falk), the father of the man Arkin's daughter is going to marry. This collection presents the hysterical original along with Andrew Fleming's riotous remake in 2003, in which Albert Brooks stars as Jerry Peyser, a podiatrist who gets more than he ever could have bargained for when his daughter gets engaged to a boy whose father, Steve Tobias (Michael Douglas), claims to be a spy and involves Jerry in some very questionable--and very funny--situations. Douglas and Brooks, like Falk and Arkin, make a great comedic duo. Please see individual titles for complete synopsis information.
