The story of the Buckman family and friends, attempting to bring up their children. They suffer/enjoy all the events that occur: estranged relatives, the "black sheep" of the family, the eccentrics, the skeletons in the closet, and the rebellious teenagers.Written by

Another sign that the movie was shot in Florida rather than Missouri where it's meant to be set: the booth where Julie and Tod pick up the pictures is in front of a Publix, a grocery store found ONLY in Florida until 1991. The first Publix outside Florida opened in Savannah, Georgia, in 1991. See more »

You feel like you wanna throw up?

Oh Taylor, baby... Gil, why are you standing there?
Waiting for her head to spin around.

Winning ensemble comedy about the humurous and tragic tribulations of parenting that is for all ages. Robards is wonderful as the patriarch of the family but it's Martin who stands out, especially in the wonderful "Cowboy" scene. The film is heartfelt and ends on a tender note. Randy Newman leads his through the work with his grand tunes. He was Oscar nominated for his song, "Love to See You Smile." Wiest was also Oscar nominated.
