Reviews
Mine: Very pleasant. Martin is quite restrained leaving the wild stuff to Short. Sweet and gently funny.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Pleasant update of the 1950 comedy gem about a father unwilling to let go of his little girl. It's refreshing to find such ``normal'' characters in a 90s movie, but there are too many lulls (and a few too many sidesteps into silliness) for it to hit the bull's-eye as the original did. P. S. : Can we now arrange a moratorium on the song ``My Girl''? Funny cameo by SCTV's Eugene Levy. Followed by a sequel.
