Trivia

John Amos got his big break thanks to Bea Arthur: had it not been for her CBS series "Maude", "Good Times" would have never seen the light of day. (Amos also has a connection to another cast member, Robert Costanzo: they both appeared in Die Hard 2.) See more »

Bea-licious!
29 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

I finally saw this flick on sale for $4.99 at the local gay video rental place and had to snatch it up immediately! I watched it with the sole intention of seeing my hero Bea Arthur deliver a knockout performance, which she of course did. The overall plot is kind of hokey, (does anyone know why we should even care about Jason Alexander's character??) but Bea is fabulous as the Makeshift brothers' credit union-employee mom. Her dry, deadpan deliveries keep the humor moving right along, and this movie probably wouldn't have even registered on my scale without her.

Funny cameo scene by Rob Reiner, too. Watch for a very young Haley Joel Osment in that same scene.
