Tony Danza is wasted in this movie!
14 July 2000 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

We all love Tony Danza, and here we see him once again carrying his fellow cast members to the end of a project. Gil Filar is especially irritating as "Little Joe Jr." Tony Danza's character (I think his name is "Tony" something) is hit on the head by a can full of garbage by Leon his co-worker (played by a young Walter Matthau) and suddenly becomes a field-goal kicking machine. Whoever wrote the script is a jackass, but Danza makes it shine!
