The In Laws

Year: 2003
Director: Andrew Fleming
Cast: Michael Douglas, Albert Brooks, Candice Bergen, Robin Tunney
Pretty much hated by audiences and critics, this film was a pretty weak idea but Albert Brooks and Michael Douglas (amazingly) only just pull it off through a mixture of luck and comic timing – both characters looked like there were going to be irritating.

Brooks is an uptight dentist who can't stand anything unexpected, Douglas an active CIA operative trying to dodge assassination attempts by international drug lords while their son and daughter are getting married.

The story revolves around the wedding plans coming together amid the two men learning to love each other, Brooks' highly strung dullard and Douglas streetwise, capable spy.

Some very funny dialogue and a few good characters make it worth watching even if the premise isn't one you'd normally invest a lot of faith in.
