Product Description

Oscar winner, Alan Arkin, stars as Flagg Purdy, a lovable, but stubborn father of six who is easily overwhelmed by life's little annoyances. When a silly argument with his neighbor sends Flagg into believing he is dying, his devoted wife and his estranged children are brought together where sibling conflicts and long-simmering resentments ultimately bring this dysfunctional family closer together.

Quite a number of years ago, I think it was a Christmas special by Hallmark, we saw "A Matter Of Principle" starring Alan Arkin. What a movie. We loved it so much we bought several copies and gave some away to those we know would like it as a gift. After a while it became more than just a gift. We realized just what a 'teaching tool' the movie was... showing folks NOT to behave like Flagg, just on 'principle'.... and some folks really need to learn that lesson. This latest movie, while not quite as good as the first, is still well worth watching and projects the 'Flagg Purdy' character out there even further. Neither of these movies got much, if any, commentary (good or bad) or review. I think you'll like this one just fine.

I actually was an extra in it. Spent the day with cast and crew and found that Austin Pendleton was a kick in the pants. I bought this because I was invested in it not really knowing It's quality. To my surprise, I thought the plot and the acting was good. I enjoyed it.

Ok flic... BUT, it is NOT a continuation of "A Matter of Principal". Family is different and characters are different. It could have been a much better movie if it had been done as a sequel.
