Uncle Joe is ageing. He's also a millionaire. That's why his family is trying so very hard to get into his good books. They all want a piece of his empire. Unfortunately Uncle Joe isn't as stupid as his family thinks he is. He can see that his family is only nice to him because they want his money. Along comes Daniel McTeague, a struggling bowler, imported from another city by his family, to put an end to this ridiculous situation. The fight won't be easy, though, because the poor family has a little bit of competition - A beautiful nurse who takes care of Uncle Joe (and no doubt would love to take care of his bank account). Who gets all the money? Written by

I suppose saying that the end of this movie is great gives something away.
Then again you don't know what that is so maybe not.
The plot of this film has Kirk Douglas dying as all of his relatives try to
curry favor and get left his fortune. When every trick in the book fails
they call in Michael J Fox as his long lost favorite nephew. Fox is now a
down on his luck pro-bowler desperate for the cash the family promises
Some of what follows is sit-com material, some is highly inspired. The good
part of it is that almost all of it is funny.
Certainly the film as a whole is not the best thing down the pike, but it
has its moments, all of which make this film worth seeing.
