Bobby later realizes that Lenny's mother is his former girlfriend who has married another guy. Although not being allowed he makes himself visible to her... after some situations take place he vows to give his soul up to help his son from losing his own life.

After discovering who Lenny's mother is, Bobby leaves the house and starts wandering the streets looking for Rafferty. All the businesses Bobby passes are still open and doing business, even the street vendors (as seen by the many customers carrying packages, Rafferty is eating a hotdog). While Lenny is being confronted by his parents, the clock behind him shows the time to be almost 10:45pm. It seems unlikely businesses would still be open at that time. See more »

I have loaned this to my friends (and their kids) of many ages and all have really enjoyed it. The sketch about the "spazola" had me in stitches although not politically correct these days Also, catch a look at Richard Mulligan as Rafferty (the man from "Soap" I'm told) I believe this film is very underrated but Sadly it is seldom seen on English TV apart from occasionally on Sky. However, should you ever get a chance to watch it...I would thoroughly recommend it ! It has sadness, humour, sex (A little), comedy and a story which is more than a lot of films these days. And..... The whole family can sit down together and enjoy it
