Recommendation to view this movie.
4 November 1999 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

A sensitive portrayal by the talented John Ritter, of the 'black sheep' of a rich family. The movie explores not only the relationship of a couple parted by circumstances but united by family ties, but also the relationship between a father and son who - like so many of us - couldn't seem to communicate. A heart-warming drama; sometimes funny, sometimes sad; always engaging.
