    Wife recorded the original The In-Laws. After running some hoops for a couple of hours, got home and watched some of it last night. (The young-uns here might not enjoy as much).

    Hilarious! Peter Falk is great as a lowkey CIA operative but its Alan Arkin as an uptight dentist that makes it a classic. The serpentine dance to get to the car at the airport is one of the funniest scenes ever.

    Great movie.
  3. Great movie.

    I can't even remember who was in the remake. I'm glad it flopped, though.

    Just the title of this thread cracked me up.

    Remake was with Michael Douglas and (I think) Albert Brooks? Dopey.

  6. Yeah, 21, that sounds right.

    Drives me nuts when they remake a great film like that.

    i was at the dentist last week with a mouth full of metal and started laughing because all i could think about was, "MRS. ADELMAN CANNOT BITE DOWN!!!"

    Vince Ricardo: Are you interested in joining? The benefits are terrific. The trick is not to get killed. That's really the key to the benefit program.

    Peter Falk... it had to be him in that role.
