The In-Laws

If the jokes in this amusing hit-or-miss comedy weren't primarily misses, we might have a comedy classic on our hands. It has a potentially funny plot about two future in-laws, Peter Falk an ex-CIA agent and Alan Arkin a mild-mannered dentist. Falk is on an assignment that he apparently created himself and he tricks skeptical Arkin into going to Central America with him. However, Arkin doesn't like this trip at all because people are shooting at him. Falk is good in his role, but Arkin is rather stale.
