Sit, Relax and Enjoy Jack Lemmon!
25 June 2018 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Jack Lemmon was one of America's most beloved actors. This film may not be the greatest of his works but he makes it so. With a supporting cast like Madeline Kahn, Joanna Gleason and Talia Shire, Jack Lemmon is surrounded by talented women. Jonathan Silverman played his college graduate son, Michael. The film was made for television for HBO in 1992. Jack played Aram Katourian, an Armenian American successful businessman who has millions of dollars. His son doesn't seem interested in hard work or success but by getting on his father's tailcoats. The film has a lesson about how to succeed in business. When Aram declares bankruptcy, he moves his family to their first apartment on the wrong side of town. He wanted his son to become independent and ambitious to succeed. Meanwhile, he is rescued by a homeless woman named Billie (Madeline Kahn) and recounts his story to her. Joanna Gleason played his longtime mistress, Irene and Talia Shire played his longtime wife, Millie.
