Editorial Reviews

A quiet school truant officer, Joe, uncovers a young boy's attempt to fake a residential address, and subsequently gets involved romantically with the boy's mother. The truant officer waffles between a sadistic relationship with his on-again, off-again girlfriend and the mother. When one of the officer's inventions takes off, he chooses the girl and shatters the friendship with the boy and his mother. Only at the last possible moment does he figure out what he's sacrificed, and attempts to get it back.

Enjoyable movie that doesn't waste time letting you in on the feelings and problems of all the characters involved in a most down to earth, comical way that holds your interest from begining to end. Delightful story about a bunch of messed up grown-ups, who through the relentless efforts of an equally messed up, but very determined adolesent, all eventually find the road to love and happiness. Excellent performances by all stars.

This is a romantic comedy about a writer who temps as a security guard in a school. He discovers that Sarandon is sending her son to a school out of her district and in the process of his investigation, becomes interested and empathetic to the child and falls in love with Sarandon. The story is realistic and funny, and one of the great early dreyfuss/sarandon films.

This movie is one of the very best I've ever seen. A light-hearted comedy starring Richard Dryfus and Susan Sarandon, it portrays a a profound friendship that eventually leads to a love match. I highly recommend it. Now, if the studio would only release it because I would love to own it.

This movie is almost 30 years old. It's going to take just a gesture to make it into a DVD. .......
