Given that this is a Rodney Dangerfield movie it is supprisingly witting and sentimental. Fun supporting cast helps. Who knew that diving as a sport could be used as a movie climax?
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Bombastic, uneducated, self-made millionaire enrolls in college, in order to encourage his student son. Very entertaining comedy, full of hilarious Dangerfield one-liners, but key to the film's success is that Rodney's character is so likable. Kellerman shines, too, as English professor who becomes the apple of his eye.
