Nothing worth "Coming Home" to...
2 March 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, see: Jon Cryer looks a lot like Matthew Broderick. Matthew Broderick made "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" a year earlier. So, Cryer made a movie with a similar title. Clever, huh?

If you said yes, you must have missed this one.

"Morgan Stewart's Coming Home" is about as slap-dash as it gets, throwing in odd bits of "humor" in place of a plot. Whenever there's a slow spot, just show Cryer waxing the floor with one of those industrial floor waxers or admitting to free-basing Clearasil, toss in a chase every so often or pop in the old stand-by: two guys sharing a shower.

You can't say much for a movie where Lynn Redgrave looks like she's planning thorough revenge on her agent all the way through. Lynn, give me his number and I'll do it for nothin'.

Oh, and even Gleason shows up to make us think that we're watching a John Hughes movie. Very subliminal, guys. BUT, this isn't a Hughes. It's a Smithee. Know the rules and go from there.

One star. Cryer's good for a laugh (A laugh - singular).

And remember: home is where the heart is (yuk, yuk, yuk).
