This movie is just great, its really funny & original for its time. Martin Short & Nick Nolte really make this movie work, I would say this is Martin Shorts best role in a movie where he's actually really hilarious throughout the movie. The casting for this movie is also good too, movie keeps traveling at a fairly consistent pace. In my own opinion this is a great family comedy movie. Its extremely funny & touching all at the same time, I recommend this to all comedy movie lovers, the bank scene is just simply hilarious. This is my favourite Nick Nolte movie, i haven't seen too many of his movies but his acting was great in this movie. I give this 8.5/10 for being a very under estimated movie.
