Not exactly "My Three Sons" but better than I expected.
14 March 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this film first began, I thought it looked a lot like one of the later episodes of "My Three Sons"...when all the kids were getting families of their own and establishing their own lives. But just because this starred Fred MacMurray does NOT mean it's that TV show all again....and I am happy about that.

When the film begins, Mr. and Mrs. Chadwick (MacMurray and Kathleen Maguire) have a very full life--two of their daughters are married, one's about to marry and they've got a mess of grandkids. Plus, they are older...at retirement age. However, into this very solid family a LOT of change is about to occur. Mr. Chadwick is offered the perfect job...many states away. And, although he's taken the offer, he doesn't anticipate all the many family upheavals which are about to occur and upset their plans.

This is definitely a Kleenex film....so have some nearby just in case. It's also a movie that gets MUCH better as it goes on...and tackles some VERY adult and tough topics. I could say more but don't want to spoil it. If you want to see it, this installment of "The ABC Movie of the Week" is on YouTube. Be prepared for a lousy print--a bit blurry and degraded due to age.
