Crazy movie with "normalish" father of the bride (with phobias) meets "almost normal" father of the bridegroom. Two parents, miles apart in lifestyle, are thrown together when their son and daughter decide to marry. Michael Douglas is mixed up in a dodgy world as an undercover agent, trying to act normally for the sake of his son, and Albert Brooks, the bride's father, is nervous and exasperated at the strange behaviour of his precious daughter's father in law to be.
This is a fast moving movie with some surprising twists and turns and really unexpected appearances, first by David Suchet as you've never seen him before (quite different to his famous Poirot) very camp, and then by a popular band of the 1980s/1990s singing a well known song to which we can all sing along.
Dear Albert doesn't really have the body to show off a skimpy red pair of bathing trunks, but somehow he manages to end up doing all the things that don't come naturally to him, which is hilarious.
Apparently there was a previous film by the same name, which I haven't seen, but that is probably a good thing, as I really enjoyed this version and I have nothing to compare it to. It reminded me a little of "True "Lies".
No problem with the movie on DVD - good picture and sound.
