The In-Laws (1979)

Director: Arther Hiller. Cast: Alan Arkin, Peter Falk, Richard Libertini, David Paymer, James Hong. 103 min. Rated PG-13. Comedy/Adventure.

Still truly charming, after more than 30 years. In-laws Arkin and Falk (the former a regular New York dentist, the latter a CIA agent gone rogue), create incredible chemistry as one of the oddest couples imagineable, on a quest to topple the international monetary system and prop a nutcase Latin America dictator to rule the world. Makes you seriously miss Falk. Remade in 2003, with Michael Douglass and Albert Brooks in the lead.

PS: Memorable quote: "Serpentine!"
