This movie is so funny. I love all Steve Martin movies except (planes,trains and automobilesl
This is a must see movie the little boy in it is hysterical
Steve Martin is hilarious in this movie. A great ensemble cast that bring to life the ups and downs of parenting. You can't go wrong with a Steve Martin movie. He has the ability to draw you into his world and take you for a ride on his crazy train.
This movie is hilarious like all movies that Steve Martin has acted in.
Ron Howard's 1989 hit, written by fellow family men Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel (Splash, A League of Their Own), is an original comedy about contemporary life and the eternal responsibilities of raising children. Steve Martin has never been better than as a dedicated husband and father trying (and inevitably failing, as do most of us) to balance the demands of his kids and his job. The actor, like his character, throws himself into the part quite touchingly, never more so than in a scene where a hired clown fails to show up at a children's party and Martin's character unabashedly provides the entertainment. Good as Martin is, this is actually an ensemble piece with numerous actors playing members of the same family, with cross-generational joys and disappointments in the air--and parents in conflict, children in love, and so on. Jason Robards is very good as a patriarch who finally accepts the reality that the son he adores (Tom Hulce) is a major screwup
