Reviews
Mine: Some funny stuff, but no likeable characters make it tiring after awhile. Nice job by Bette Midler and Nich Nolte. Little Richard steal a couple of scenes.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Bum moves in with neurotic, nouveau-riche Bev Hills family and takes over their lives. Slick, often funny, but unusually obvious satire for Mazursky (who also appears as one of Dreyfuss's fat-cat friends). Some good performances, though Mike the Dog easily steals the film. A remake of Renoir's BOUDU SAVED FROM DROWNING. Later a TV series.
