Written by obnoxious funnyman Rodney Dangerfield, he wants his son to finish school and get a diploma so he will get ahead, but like father like son, Keith Gordon the actor, he doesn't want to either. Neither is motivated. But daddy who is wealthy indulges his son as well as himself so they both attend together. Some very funny situations. Finally, the son who displays wonderful swimming and diving championship (what a body he has)for graduation. The crowd urges daddy to be an alternate diving champ, and what a terrific display Rodney shows (maybe it was not really him, but he sure looked real to me). Both of them graduate together after much hoopla. What a fun movie this was! I haven't seen Rodney for many years, but understand from TV commercials he is planning a new show this year. In this movie, Sally Kellerman plays Rodney's love interest. Other famous stars include Robert Downey, Jr., Ned Beatty, and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.plays himself. 7/10
