Reviews
Mine: Maudlin and yucky! Only Lemmon's presense keeps this one from being a bomb. Danson should stay away from drama, he is not up do it. A string of dull cliche's.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Busy, distracted executive learns his father may be dying and rushes home; he winds up becoming his dad's caretaker and companion, and they grow closer than they've ever been. Genuinely affecting tearjerker turns sappy and ``cute'' at the midway point, almost negating Lemmon's fine performance. Why couldn't they have quit while they were ahead? Feature directing debut for TV sitcom producer Goldberg.
