Not funny. Poor writing. A dud., 22 June 2007
Author: rinter-1 from United States

This sit-com was based on an average uneven Tom Hanks movie. Where the movie blended comedy and sentiment the TV show tried to go all comedy. Other than Bill Macey the acting was very uninspired. It failed to establish any real relationships, for instance between the son and the father and the son and his girlfriend. What the show missed was the mother's presence which created further conflict in the family relationship. Also there was no apparent friction between the father and son. The commercials created by the ad company where the son worked were billed as being hilarious on the promos to this show. They fell far short of being funny.
