Consensus: Bigger and slicker than the original, but not necessarily better.

Rex Reed
New York Observer

Humdrum direction fails to elevate an already bankrupt idea from its relentless doldrums.

Charles Taylor

This In-Laws isn't a disaster, it's just not very good.

This movie has more misfires than hits.

Amazingly, the two versions have hit the casting bull's-eye twice in 24 years to provide superior entertainment.

Funny, if a bit broad.

Cinema em Cena

Medíocre se analisada isoladamente, esta refilmagem se torna ainda mais constrangedora quando comparada ao divertido original.

Ebert & Roeper

One of the problems with The In-Laws is that it spends as much time with the uninteresting and unfunny wedding story as it does with the spy stuff.

Its laughs are sweet-natured, and Heaven knows the lead players earn every one.

Brian Gibson

A sloppy excuse for 95 minutes of celluloid . . . Andrew Fleming's film should be outlawed for its sheer laziness alone.

This Movie caused me a Headache.

Saw this a very long time ago. I remember I loved it, primarily because of Michael Doublas' hilarious performance. Grade: C+

Albert Brooks is by far the funniest thing about this film, it?s an easy watching film, but very much a no brainer.

Oh man! I watched this because of Ryan Reynolds. But he was sorta like a special guest in it. It wasn't funny though. Don't waste your time on it.

I must make sure to add the original to my Netflix queue -- now closiing in on 400 movies! I would love to see what Alan Arkin and Peter Falk made of this… More
