The In-Laws: Burbank, Calif., August 7, 2003 - Comedy is relative. Especially with The
In-Laws, the side-splitting remake of the cult-classic comedy starring
Academy Awardฎ-winner Michael Douglas (Wonder Boys, Traffic) and Albert
Brooks (Finding Nemo, Mother), tying the knot October 7 on DVD and VHS from
Warner Home Video (WHV). The In-Laws will be available at $27.95 SRP for
the DVD and $22.98 SRP for the VHS.
Douglas and Brooks "make a truly comical combination" (David Sheehan,
CBS-TV) and a "riotously funny comic pairing" (Jeanne Wolf's Hollywood) as
opposites thrust together by their children's wedding in a "rollicking ride"
(US Weekly) that is "frantically funny" (Westwood One Radio). Co-starring
Emmy Award-winner Candice Bergen (Miss Congeniality, Sweet Home Alabama),
Ryan Reynolds (National Lampoon's Van Wilder), Lindsay Sloane (Bring It On)
and Robin Tunney (Vertical Limit, The Craft).
Jerry had the perfect life. Now it's a perfect mess. Days before his
daughter's wedding, he met Steve, the father of the groom. Look on the
bright side, Jerry. You're not losing a daughter. You're gaining a madman.
Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks are the odd couple of the CIA set in a
fast, funny remake of the 1979 original. Douglas is Steve, who says he's a
copier salesman but whose splashy lifestyle, not to mention the agents on
his trail and the vial of nuclear material in his pocket, says otherwise.
Brooks is Jerry, a nerdy podiatrist plunged feet first in Steve's world.
For "a full-tilt onslaught of silly" (Margaret McGurk, The Cincinnati
Enquirer), everyone sooner or later has to meet The In-Laws.
