Trivia

Film critic Gene Siskel hated this movie so much that he stated on "Siskel & Ebert" that it almost made him quite his job. Yet he stated that later the same day he saw a better teen comedy Say Anything... (1989) and it encouraged him not to quit. See more »

Goofs

When Richard is in the kitchen talking to Doug, he speculates on what would happen if Katie met a duke or a prince in Europe. He says, "What about that Prince Charles guy?" To which Doug responds, "Prince Charles is married." However, both men's lips form the word "Andrew" instead of Charles. See more »

Awesome 80s fun!
24 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Awesome 80s fun! This film was a delightful piece of work, about a dad worried about his daughter played by Tony Danza and the daughter played by Ami Dolenz and Catherine Hicks (7th Heaven). This is a good family film for everybody.
