A Family for Joe (1990)
A vague memory
I hardly remember this show, but what I can remember I liked. It didn't last long, though. Robert Mitchum, from what I can remember, played a homeless man that is taken in by kids (I think they were orphaned). I think it was intended to be a drama, but it was funny. I could be way off-base though, it's been forever since I saw this.
If you liked Suicide Kings...
I was up late the other night and this was on HBO. I only started to watch it because of John Henson, who I liked watching on "Talk Soup". Boy, was this a stretch for him!
"Stag"'s premise is simple enough, but the writing and cinematography were complex. As I was watching, I was reminded of another engrossing film... "Suicide Kings". Both take place in one location (mostly), and both involve a group of guys dealing with their recent actions, and a hostage. Both also have a known comedic actor (in this case Henson) doing a dramatic turn. And VERY well, I might add.
Unlike most movies, this one doesn't quite turn out like you think it will, not completely. For mostly B Actors, I was very impressed with the quality of the work. I'm also surprised more impressive talents didn't sign on after Jerry Stiller got attached to the movie! But nonetheless... if you liked "Suicide Kings" you should like "Stag" as well.
