I've just seen this film for the third time - the first was in 1979 when itwas in the cinemas, the second was in 1989, and last night - 1999. And eachtime I've loved it. Somehow it catches just the right note early on, andmanages to maintain it right thru the film.

I think the character of Vince (Peter Falk) is the key. At the start of thefilm we are convinced that he is a loud-mouthed schmuck with criminaltendencies, embarrassing and unpleasant to be around. This image slowlybegins to crack, and although his behavior doesn't change one iota fromstart to finish, our perception of him does. So much so that by the close ofthe film we come to see him as a man of heroic qualities, gracious, andmodest to boot. It's a very clever transformation and it's achieved via aplot that spirals hilariously out of control at dazzlingspeeds.

And of course the other joy of the film is the unlikely relationship whichdevelops under fire between the zany CIA operative Falk and Alan Arkin asthe dull but respectable dentist.

Peter Falk and Alan Arkin are an absolutely killer combination in thisover-the-top comedy. The writer who helped pen "Blazing Saddles," AndrewBergman, is back in a solo effort this time that downplays the profanity andadult situations of that earlier classic for a family-friendly outing thatloses none of its bite or wit.

For me, this film carries the same buttoned-down lunacy of a great Bob andRay routine, only sustained for 90 minutes, with hardly a sagging line ornote. Get through the first five minutes, a fairly routine armored carrobbery and a protracted stairwell run, and you will not be sorry, becausethe rest of "The In-Laws" is so funny, it will take you three or four eagerviewings before you appreciate just how brilliant beyond belief it is. Atleast that's what happened with me.

It's a strangely genial film, its approach personified in Peter Falk's"friend of the world" interpretation of Vince Ricardo. There's nothing thatphases him, or is too minute to warrant some breezily cheery comment, like"Is this coffee freeze-dried? It's very good." Or "The benefits [forbelonging to the CIA] are terrific. The trick is not to get killed. That'sthe whole key to the benefits package."

Ricardo's approach is exemplified in an apron he is seen wearing at abarbeque: "I'm loaded with options." That he is, and screenwriter Bergman,too. In a somewhat desultory but still necessary DVD commentary for"In-Laws" fanatics like me, it is revealed by Bergman and director ArthurHiller reveal the key moment for the screenplay is a fairly straight andjokeless scene between Alan Arkin's Dr. Kornpett and his daughter, where sheurges him not to reject Ricardo because of his subliminated sexual jealousyabout losing his daughter to Ricardo's son in marriage. Okay, maybe thatdoes read funny, but it doesn't come across as funny.

The way the scene works, once the hapless dentist hears this, he is screwed.He has to help out Ricardo, in an inane flight from the government into thearms of the only Latin American dictator who's national flag features atopless woman, and whose apparent deputy is a Senor Wences hand puppet. Youjust follow along the same way Dr. Kornpett does, never knowing what toexpect next, and, unlike him, enjoying it all the way through.

This film isn't laughs for everyone. Senator Jesus Braunsweiger'snext-of-kin and BMW enthusiasts will find plenty to mourn. But for everyoneelse seeing it for the first time, it will be a joy forever, and a bit of apuzzlement: Why isn't this comedy better-known? Why don't people quote it asreadily as "Caddyshack," "The Blues Brothers" or other lesser, contemporaryfare?

One last thing: Alan Arkin's performance is maybe the best thing in themovie. I only realized this after repeat viewings. He's not the funniestcomic actor around, frankly I never found his stuff that good in the otherfilms of his I've seen, but here he makes the thing work. I wanted to saysomething about this containing the best straight-man work since Bud Abbott,but the more I see it, the less I'm sure who's the straight man. So many ofthe great lines are his: "There are flames on my car." "Flies with beaks?""A Zee? A Zee?" "What flow? There isn't any flow." And to think his firstline in the movie is a complaint about the viscosity of his dentalbibs.

Just shut me up and go see it already. Or see it again. There's worse thingsyou could do with your time, and not much better.

This may be one the most underrated comedies ever made. This movie hasmademe laugh out loud each of the many times I have seen it. One of the thingsthat makes it really special, however, is that this would be a good movieeven if it never had a funny line. The reason is that it is simply a greatstory. The plot is full of twists and turns, and leaves you surprised attheend. This alone would make this movie a "7." Add the numerous laughs, andthis movie becomes an undenible "10."
