During the water-ski scene, the Bruno Kirby character is filming Bob Crane's character. When they are watching the film in a later scene, it is simply the scene from the movie, complete with edits and slow motion effects instead of what the character would really have filmed. See more »

this is one of my favorite movies.Its not that funny as a comedy,but i don't think it supposed to be a wild comedy,its clearly a feel-good family movie about a father,worried about his daughter who has reached college age and is about to leave the household.
There's comedy element,mainly from Joe Flynn as the tyrannical main client of McCready,and Jody Baker as a egomaniac artist,but the main value of this movie is the extremely likable McCready family itself and the daughter's gang of friends who are as seventies as you can get.
Bob Crane and Barbara Rush are the parents and Kurt Russell and Kathleen Cody are the young people in love. There really isn't a false note in this Disney movie,if one wants to paint everything that was great about America,and is nearly lost, its pretty much all in this movie.People are kind,they have feelings,kids respect their parents,they are all good-hearted and the kids are faithful to their friends.Its a Disney movie,so one expects something like that,but its all well done and natural,and the cast is really likable.
Like other poster said the wedding at the end is probably the most beautiful wedding ever filmed.I watched this when i was a teen myself ,and now i'm middle-aged and besides this film holding well through the years ,i can remember as a kid i wished i had a girlfriend as pretty and kind as the daughter Wendy is in this movie,and a life similar to the McCreadys.
Hollywood has gone down the drain,they think that ,all Americans are as sick as they are over there,and that there are no more nice people in this world.The world is not just sex and violence fest. I just wish movies like this one could still be made.
