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 »

Cute film
27 July 2004 | by (Hollywood,CA) – See all my reviews

certainly not a benchmark in American cinema, but all in all, a rather enjoyable little movie. Perfect for a lazy afternoon when you're not in the mood for anything in particular. It's been a long time since I've seen it but I remember it being a light, fun little fluff piece which I have a firm appreciation for. Bea Arthur's turn as the mother was a definite stand out. She's always good. It was also nice to see Jason Alexander emerge from his George cocoon and see that he really has acting chops. I'd have to say if this were out on DVD, I would buy it. Not much chance of that happening though is there?
