The movie is unique in the Marsha Mason - Neil Simon collaborative canon in that Mason, in a lead starring role in a Simon film, sports light brown/ash blonde hair whereas in all the other films Mason starred in and written by her then husband Simon Mason had always been a dark brunette. Mason did however have full blonde hair in a supporting ensemble part in Simon's The Cheap Detective (1978). See more »

Jason Robards is a really good actor. He made this movie that I'll be writing about " Max Dugan Returns." This movie was written by Neil Simon. This is a movie from the 1983. Most movies from the 80's are boring, but this one wasn't.This is a really funny movie. I thought that the movie was really good. Jason Robards did a really good acting. This movie makes people realize a lot of things in life. like for example believing in your family & close friends, but especially yourself. It also teaches you to accept you family & friends the way that they are not the the way that you want them to be. It aso teaches you to trust in everyone even yourself. I believe that this movie should be about family. This movie bring a family together, that haven't seen each other for lots of years. This movie shows the importance of life as a family. I think that what Max was trying to do was fair. He was trying to help his daughter and his grandson. Jason Robards did a good job as Max. He made me laugh during the movie. In the movie all he does is lie and help his family. I think that helping his daughter was really nice. I really like his acting. Nora was a good mother. The part that I didn't like much was the part when she lied and the part when she was mean to her father.She should not care were the money comes from. On the voting I gave "Max Dugan Retuns" a 9, because the policeman was getting on my nerves. He was acting like if he was married to her.If he really loved her he wouldn't of be so mean to her about her father. This is a really good movie. Jason Robards was born to do this movie. I really liked it. Even if Jason Robards is an actor, and not a musician I'm glad he got a Kennedy Center Honors.
