Storyline

Matt Hobbs is a talented but unsuccessful actor. When estranged (and strange) ex-wife Beth dumps their daughter Jeannie on Matt, father and daughter have a lot of adjusting to do. His budding relationship with attractive production assistant Cathy Breslow is made complicated, while the precocious child is overly accustomed to getting her own way. Matt eventually faces the choice of family vs career in a particularly difficult way. Written by Reid Gagle

Trivia

In the beginning of the film, we see a reference to Powers Boothe showing up at the Emmy Awards ceremony to collect the award he had won for playing Jim Jones in the middle of a Screen Actors Guild strike. Although Nick Nolte was not nominated for an Emmy that year, everything else shown about the incident really happened in September, 1980. See more »

Quotes

Matt Hobbs: Washington? Washington, boy, that must have been a big adjustment.
Nan Mulhanney: It wasn't that bad. Both places have a lot in common: Over-privileged people, crazed by their fear of losing their privileges. Alcoholism. Addiction. Betrayal. The near total degradation of what once were grand motives. The same spiritual blood-letting. I kind of do miss the seasons, though.

Enjoyable in a surprising way
12 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

Just caught this flick on Cable by accident. lazy Sunday afternoon, and Contact was playing on TNT for the 50th 'premiere' time, so I figured, what the heck.

And actually, it's kinda interesting I thought. Nick Nolte and kids are always terminally cute for some reason (ref. Three Fugitives with Martin Short). He's like like a big St. Bernard dog.

Anyway, the story is OK, losta phony LA movie folks earnestly searching for themselves, blah, blah, blah. Somewhere in there, there is some genuine humor and heartfelt sentiment. Actually not all that mushy. Tracey Ullman is horrible as always, but apart from that an OK Sunday afternoon flick.
