Prospective fathers-in-law Steve Tobias(Michael Douglas) and Jerry Peyser(Albert Brooks) are as different as chalk and cheese. Dr. Jerome Peyser is a gentle podiatrist with a well-organized daily routine designed to eliminate all possible sources of stress. Steve Tobias, on the other hand, is a daredevil CIA operative whose average day consists of dodging bullets, stealing private jets and negotiating with international arms smugglers. When the two meet for the first time to celebrate their children's upcoming marriage, the dynamic Steve gives potential father-of-the-bride Jerry a serious case of pre-nuptial jitters and turns his perfectly balanced life upside down. 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 causes Jerry to see a vision of his daughter's perfectly planned wedding blowing up in his face. Before he can annul the wedding, 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 precarious adventures that take the mismatched in-laws-to-be halfway around the world.

To add to his angst, George discovers his own wife to be pregnant too. As the beleaguered patriarch prepares for the two new additions to his family, comic confusion transpires. More fun comes in the form of Franck Egglehoffer and his assistant Howard Weinstein, who are now no longer wedding planners but a pair of equally wacky home decorators.
