Single fathers and their hang ups.
7 February 2003 | by mifunesamuraiSee all my reviews

A look at modern day divorced American single fathers and their attachment to McDonalds! It has some sincere and funny moments that make it worth the while but as always, when Hollywood gets to close to the truth, it turns to a TV soap style of resolution.
