Eddie and his father are now alone. In a bid to fill the great emptiness they feel, they reorganize their lives around women. But Eddie’s tastes do not always coincide with his father’s desires… An original and winning comedy centred on the touching father/son relationship.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
a movie that addresses the symbolic consumption of bodies without directly critiquing it and in that a truly disturbing but really emotional movie. a how to on avoiding the void with a few simple ingredients
I personally really enjoy this film, although I feel Jerry Van Dyke was a bit miscast. He is much better playing nervous bumbling characters then supposedly lothario. Ron Howard is great as usual, with a cameo by bro Clint and dad Rance if you look for them. I just love Glenn Ford, and if he wasn't in it I would probably just rate it a 3 instead of 4
