Cousins is a 1989 American romantic comedy film directed by Joel Schumacher and starring Ted Danson, Isabella Rossellini, Sean Young, William Petersen, Keith Coogan, Lloyd Bridges and Norma Aleandro. The film is an American remake of the 1975 French comedy Cousin Cousine, directed by Jean-Charles Tacchella. It was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, but set in Seattle, Washington.


Larry Kozinski (Danson) and Maria Hardy (Rossellini) meet at the marriage of Larry's uncle Phil and Maria's mother Edie (Aleandro). Newly made cousins-by-marriage, they begin talking to each other when they both realize their spouses are missing. As they talk in the reception area, Larry's wife Tish (Sean Young) and boorish Tom (Petersen) come in together, saying Tom was showing her a car and it broke down.
