First of two films [to date, August 2013] that actress Bette Midler has made with director Paul Mazursky. The second was Scenes from a Mall (1991) which was made and released about five years later. That movie also had Beverly Hills as its setting, particularly the Beverly Center shopping mall on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. See more »

I may not know what's funny, but I know what I like. I thought this movie was absolutely hilarious. I don't know, or care if it is supposed to be a satire or not. Between the son and the dog and the neighbor and the anorexic daughter and the maid, not to mention the three main characters, there are many funny moments. Nick Nolte, insinuating himself on this dysfunctional family, headed by Richard Dreyfuss and Bette Midler, appears to steer them all in the right direction, with plenty of nice moments along the way.
