Storyline

Creative director Tom Burns may be at the top of his game, but he's still considered a dinosaur for being over forty in the youthful, trendy business of advertising. In a moment of desperation, he hires young con-artist Dick Sweeney to be his stand-in at an ad agency while Tom does all of the hard work behind the scenes. The scheme works until Tom falls for Dick's co-worker Harriet Foster, forcing Tom and Dick to make a choice between love and getting a paycheck in this comedy about ageism in the work place.

A solid film for the underrated Steven Weber
17 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Tom Dick and Harriet's premise was that Tom Burns (Steven Weber) lost his job at an ad agency mainly because he wasn't hip or young enough to appeal to the coveted teenage through early 20s demographic. Then a chance meeting with two grifters ended up changing his life for the better to a certain extent.

Weber is one of the better actors in the business and he showed it on this Hallmark movie of the week.

He had to deal with his daughter moving into his apartment and life, he had to find a way to make enough money (after getting fired) to pay for alimony, his daughter's college tuition, rent and other bills, etc. while trying to find the right woman and right way(s) to get his job back at the same agency that didn't want him around.

The standouts in this film were Weber and Andrew Francis (Dick Varnett). Meanwhile, Tom, Dick, and Harriet was a sweet and innocuous film that showed that it's not about looks, money, and image. It's about experience and talent. But its too bad majority of the people in this world don't understand that.
