Not Much Of A Journey
10 November 2004 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Screen legend Kirk Douglas in a TVM ! What a casting coup , I bet the teleplay had an outstanding script to entice Douglas to play the lead role Ed Reece . I can see why Douglas would have wanted to take the role since it deals with a dying old man living his last days and may have tugged heart strings since this may at the time we'd ever see Douglas acting . However this doesn't make TAKE ME HOME AGAIN outstanding

The problem is with a very mawkish script . Ed's draft dodging son Larry returns to the family home much to the disgust of the other family members . Granting his dying father one last wish Larry takes his father on a sentimental journey across America . If the family were disgusted at Larry before the journey they're even more disgusted now . It might be a good idea for viewers to keep some insulin handy due to the sugary sentiment on screen . Nothing very exciting happens apart from the father and son getting accosted by some rednecks and like all rednecks found in TVMs they're multi cultural ones

As a footnote this is available on DVD in Britian where it's known as THE LIES BOYS TELL which is a ridiculous title ( It conjures up images of a court case involving child abuse ) and TAKE ME HOME AGAIN seems far more sensible
