I was wondering what the academy win & nominations were about. To my very disappointment is not at all amazing although in some, rare scenes cute. There is no flesh on the bones; the story is too weak, the subplots uninteresting & the characters unsympathic for a love story. Did Richard Dreyfuss deserve the 'Oscar'?; I really don't know.
Name me one person who can play an asshole and at the same time make him charming besides Dreyfuss. Totally deserved his Oscar for this one and was just perfect casting.Every scene he's in bursts with energy and great comic invention. Dreyfuss was one of a kind. He combined the neuroticism of Woody Allen and the brashness of Lenny Bruce. The girl who played Lucy was good, but I didn't think much of Marsha Mason.
