Reviews
Mine: This "comedy" is so unfunny it is hard to believe. I have never understood why people have liked Jackie Gleason. Tom Hanks worst movie by a long shot.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Interminably long, highly uneven comedy-drama about a perpetual adolescent who's forced to deal with his aging, unloving father when his mom leaves him flat. Some poignant, relevant conclusions about love and responsibility (and some funny shots at the advertising business) are undermined by overlength and meandering nature of film. Hanks is excellent; Gleason is abrasive (in his last film appearance). Later a TV series. Super 35.
