I remember liking this, but do not remember it very well. Time to see it again I guess.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Sweet, simple Neil Simon comedy about a long-lost father who tries to make amends to his daughter (a struggling schoolteacher and single parent) by showering her with presents--using money he's obtained by slightly shady means. Acted with verve and sincerity by a perfect cast. Film debuts of Matthew Broderick and Kiefer Sutherland.
