His tramp wife is leaving him, leaving him as well with four children from her previous marriages plus his own son. And his lead actress wants to move in with him but isn't used to kids. Written by

Reportedly, during production, director Arthur Hiller and actor Al Pacino did not get along. Pacino once said of this, "...sometimes people who are not really meant to be together get together in this business for a short time. It's very unfortunate for all parties concerned". See more »

She takes more than 3 aspirin, although 3 are clearly shown. And the liquid levels in the champagne glasses change from shot to shot. See more »

Why all the champagne?
I need it to take the aspirin.

...this is a wonderful family film! It brings back memories from seeing it when I was much younger. It really is a truly special film that demonstrates how important family, even a non-traditional family, is -- especially when we are young. It demonstrates that children are aware of what is happening arond them, despite the fact that adults don't give them much credit for being intelligent. It also shows that "family" comes in many different forms, and sometimes the best family does not include the traditional "mom" and "dad" that we expect.
