Cinematographer David Walsh made a specialty of rescuing visually inept directors, and after boosting Howard Zieff (House Calls) and Herbert Ross (The Goodbye Girl), he almost managed to redeem the truly irredeemable Arthur Hiller (Love Story). At least he’s the only likely source of the bracing confidence that runs through this 1979 feature, an ungainly blend of Monty Python, The Goldbergs, and My Favorite Spy. With Peter Falk (very funny) as a rumpled secret agent and Alan Arkin (as elusive on-screen as ever) as a Long Island dentist. The two are thrown together when their kids get married; the plot twists take them to a banana republic presided over by a paranoid Richard Libertini (in Castro drag). With Arlene Golonka and Ed Begley Jr. 103 min.
