I was so fortunate enough to see this great, aged television film starring Ted Wass and Carrie Fisher.
This family film was on Vault Disney one night and it was a film that i (admitingly) was a tad skeptical of watching, well this proved to me that i have to keep my mind right open. This film rocked!
I've looked for it everywhere (a copy, or at least another viewing so i could tape it, thats the problem with television movies...have to wait for another viewing)
anyway, getting away from the story, the story is about Paul Sherridan(who if i can remember rightly is an artist who's about to embark on a business date) on a Sunday (of all days).
As Paul is traveling (with his faithful dog) and he pulls into a restaurant to refresh and recharge the batteries, when and identical car who holds an older couple and their younger relatives and the cars park basically right next to one another.
as you can imagine, with some escapades at the restaurant (as you might have guessed) the cars get mixed up. Paul mistakingly ends up with the kids and the older couple ends up with Paul's dog.
Of course, the cars are a great distance away from one another when they both discover that "hang on...oops, wrong car" and the hairlarious antics follow as the two sets of cars try to relocate one another.
This is a great family film, with the humour oriented at adults and children alike, its a rare thing within films these days however, this old school classic from 1986 manages to do this exceedingly well.
The chemistry between Ted Wass and Carrie Fisher's character (Frannie Jessup) is well displayed on the screen, from the moment Paul pulls up and helps her out after her car breaks down - throughout the film when discovering more about themselves and the situation and how to deal with it and at the conclusion of this film.
All in all, this film is great, a pleasant film with great humour. if you can catch this rare gem, please watch it i guarantee after you get past the initial slow introduction (it does take awhile to get into it) you will forever be blessing this film. Check it out!
