I haven't seen this version but it would be hard to beat the first version with Peter Falk and Allan Arkin - check it out

This movie is hilarious! The actors are great, very well done. I highly recommend if you like spy movies, rom-coms, comedy's, or adventure films! It's all that, put together. Good job!

A light, easy to watch film.
Michael Douglas plays an off the wall CIA spy.
His son (Ryan Reynolds) wants a normal life and is about to get married. His father in law to be (Albert Brooks) has a love hate adventure with Michael Douglas.
Entertaining with some funny parts.
