Editorial Reviews

Tom Selleck stars as wealthy Chicago broker Jon Aldrich, a loving husband and father who must rush to Florida when his elderly mother becomes ill. But when his senile father (Don Ameche – winner of an Oscar® in 1986 for Best Actor In A Supporting Role in COCOON) burns down their house, Jon is forced to bring his parents home with him. Now nothing in his life — including his money-grubbing sister (Christine Ebersole) or an FBI sting that has frozen all his finances — can compare to the daily dangers of caring for his mother and father. Still, things are about to get much, much worse. Could Jon’s final solution be a series of deadly ‘accidents’ that will take care of his folks for good? Michael Murphy (PRIVATE PARTS), Wendy Crewson (THE SANTA CLAUSE) Robert Pastorelli (MURPHY BROWN) and Anne Jackson co- star in this hilarious black comedy from screenwriter Robert Klane and director Ted Kotcheff, the creators of WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S.

I have enjoyed this movie since it came out at the movies. I love this movie and everyone that I have introduced the movie to have come back and said they laughed so hard they almost wet their pants. It really is that good. It's funny, touching, and full of irony. My fondest wish is that it comes out on DVD as soon as possible. I just can't say enough about this movie. It's not for kids under the age of15 or so, but for adults that have aged parents or grandparents you will connect right away and have a great time doing so. Prepare by going to the restroom before you start the movie and have some tissues handy for those touching moments. Poor Tom goes through the mill in this movie and does a great job acting as does all the actors. Don Amanche is sooo funny in this. I loved him in his early films where he was young, dashing and a very fine actor, and I love him in this. Take my word for it. You won't be at all disappointed for having spent the time to watch this under rated, under publicized movie. ENJOY!

This is a real classic movie. Don Ameche and Tom Selleck did a supurb job. As any movie it has its slow spots but keeps you laughing. Ive watched this flick a dozen times already and still laugh just as hard and times even harder. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who's looking for a warm comedy with lots of laughs. Now if it would only come out on DVD.

This was a good comedy from the early 90's. However this is a ripoff for 96.00 new. as some ripoff artist is making cdr copies of the original dvd. The movie is worth watching and deserves a blu ray release even. But this is insane.

Tom Selleck is great at being hurt constantly, the humor is there at all times. His doorman does an oustanding job in red underwear. Pick this one up!
