“The In-Laws” (1979): Film Review Podcast

Posted: March 18th, 2020 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | 2 Comments »

So, in these weird times, I feel compelled to hip you to a funny movie.

It’s one of my favorite comedies of all time.

The original 1979 version of “The In Laws.” (Do not fall prey to the horrible remake.)

Vince Ricardo (Peter Falk) is a renegade CIA op, whose son is marrying the daughter of Sheldon Kornpett (Alan Arkin).

Ricardo induces Kornpett to help him with an errand in the days before the wedding. They end up in front of a firing squad in a banana republic, whose dictator, General Garcia, is played by Richard Libertini in a film stealing cameo.

The film is actually showing this Friday, March 20, on a cable/ satellite channel near you. And can also be streamed for a couple bucks at Amazon Prime.
