Lighthearted and shallow but fun
4 September 2007 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

Bill Bixby plays Johnny Gains, a swinging bachelor who one day learns he's the father of a 17 year old boy.

Lighthearted TV-movie of the week brings up some tough issues and handles it in a very superficial way. The father/son relationship could have used more screen time (after all it's only 73 minutes) and development and it, like most of the film, is pretty shallow stuff.

But Bixby's natural charm shines and he gives a good performance, as do all the cast, and ensure that those 73 minutes go by pleasantly. I thought the ending was particularly nice and capped the film off well. If you're a fan of Bixby you should enjoy this, others proceed with low expectations and they might just find it entertaining.
