Tagline: The FIRST Certified Crazy Person's Comedy.

Plot: In THE IN-LAWS, Peter Falk plays a crazy CIA agent--or is he just crazy?--who meets his son's father-in-law-to-be, Alan Arkin, a respected New York City dentist, just days before their children are supposed to wed. One tangling mishap after another thrusts the two parents together as they take flight in a mad caper that includes counterfeiting, shootouts, and a South American leader who thinks he's Señor Wences. The nonstop hilarity also includes Nancy Dussault, Penny Peyser, Michael Lembeck, Ed Begley Jr., the fabulous Richard Libertini, and a wild-haired David Paymer as the cabdriver. This underrated buddy comedy is a gem from start to finish.
