Trivia

Howard being a dedicated fan of Barbra Streisand is a recurring joke throughout the film, and in this film, Bob Newhart plays the school principle who has to decide the fate of Howard's job, amid a lot of controversy and press. In 1970 Newhart played a school administrator in the Barbra Streisand film On a Clear Day You Can See Forever (1970), where he had to decide on the fate of Professor Marc Chabot's job (portrayed by Yves Montand), amid a lot of controversy and press.

I have always thought Kevin Kline is a great actor. We all have seen him in great and memorable performances. In this film, again, he is good. My family and I really had a great time watching him as a professor who sees on television one of his former students saying he (the professor) is gay. It's fun from the beginning to the end. I recommend this innocent comedy. Have fun

my rate 7/10
