One of three 1996 Neil Simon adaptations made for television and first broadcast in that year. The others were Jake's Women (1996) and The Sunshine Boys (1996). All were made for production houses Hallmark Entertainment and Metropolitan Productions. See more »
One has to feel that Jay Sandrich, as director, has to be responsible for the weak performances from this collection of usually reliable actors. With the exception of Michael Richards and Madeline Kahn, the credited actors turn in truly shocking performances. As for the Scottish and Irish accents from Richard Mulligan, Paxton Whitehead and Jane Carr, words fail me. These are trained actors?
Thankfully, the uncredited William Franklin, was, as ever, the consummate professional. If he watched the rushes, he probably requested to be left off the credit list.
How Simon must have shuddered.
