"The In-Laws" Makes Network Television Debut on AMC

Warner Brothers Action-Comedy Stars Academy Award� Winner Michael Douglas and Director/Screenwriter/Comedian Albert Brooks

Double Play Back-to-Back on Thanksgiving Weekend, Sunday, November 27 at 8 PM and 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY, NOVEMBER 7, 2005 - Family matters can now be laughing matters this Thanksgiving weekend when everyone gathers to watch two opposites thrust together by their children's wedding on a wild, comedic misadventure. For the first time on network television, AMC presents the 2003 Warner Brothers action-comedy THE IN-LAWS from director Andrew Fleming (Dick, The Craft) and starring Oscar� winner Michael Douglas and acclaimed comedian Albert Brooks. The film premieres on AMC Sunday, November 27 at 8 PM and 10 PM ET/PT. When prospective fathers-in-law Steve Tobias (MICHAEL DOUGLAS) and Jerry Peyser (ALBERT BROOKS) meet for the first time to celebrate their children's upcoming marriage, the cake hits the fan. But unbeknownst to Dr. Jerome Peyser, a mild-mannered podiatrist, his soon-to-be in-law is a daredevil CIA operative who moves through life like a heat-seeking missile. And he's giving potential father-of-the-bride Jerry a serious case of pre-nuptial jitters.

The film also features Candice Bergen, Robin Tunney (Vertical Limit) and David Suchet (Agatha Christie's Poirot) and Lindsey Sloane (Bring It On). THE IN-LAWS is from a screenplay by Nat Mauldin and Ed Solomon, based on the screenplay The In-Laws, by Andrew Bergman. Bill Gerber, Elie Samaha, Bill Todman, Jr. and Joel Simon are the producers; Andrew Stevens, Tracee Stanley and Oliver Hengst are the executive producers. David Coatsworth is co-producer. The director of photography is Alexander Gruszynski; production designer, Andrew McAlpine; and editor, Mia Goldman, A.C.E. Executive music producer is Ralph Sall.

In the film, Steve's dramatic entrances and exits, his cryptic references to a Russian runaway named Olga and his fight with a gunman in a restaurant washroom cause Jerry to see a vision of his daughter's (LINDSAY SLOANE) perfectly planned wedding blowing up in his face. As far as Jerry's concerned, letting Steve into his family takes "til death do us part" way too literally. Before he can say the wedding is off, Jerry suddenly finds himself embroiled in the chaos that follows in Steve's wake as he is dragged kicking and screaming into a series of perilous adventures that take the mismatched in-laws-to-be halfway around the world. Adding insult to injury is Steve's partner Angela (ROBIN TUNNEY), a dedicated agent who doesn't hide her hostility toward the uncooperative doctor who is - for better or worse - along for the ride. But when their children are in danger, Jerry and Steve will discover they can truly be an effective team - as jet pack meets fanny pack in this riotous remake of the 1979 comedy The In-Laws.

AMC retains the exclusive television exhibition rights to 22 films from Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution, including the network window for such mega-hits as Two Weeks Notice, Million Dollar Baby, The Last Samurai, Ocean's 12, Troy and Mystic River, as well as the upcoming Batman Begins. The agreement will further expand the network's movie library, while building on its strategy to serve the full spectrum of moviegoers.
