An early John Hughes film

Writer John Hughes was capable of producing brilliant films, as he proved with 'Pretty in Pink', 'Breakfast Club', 'Some Kind of Wonderful' etc. He was also however capable of churning out daft comedies like this one.

It's not great unfortunately, very much in the same mould as 'Three Men and a Baby' in the sense that it thinks that men can't look after children.

Michael Keaton tries his best, but this film is not a classic.

Surprisingly bad

This movie is a mess. The plot veers around from lame comedy to drama to adulterousness back to cartoonish slapstick. I expected something along the lines of 3 Men and Baby with lots of "men can't handle being a parent" gags. This one is focused almost entirely on the parents (Keaton and Garr), with the kids being peripheral to the story.

The blatant product placements became annoying (Lite Beer anyone?) About half way through, one of my family members said what turned out to be what we were all thinking, "This is really bad!"

"You're doing it wrong...."

This 1983 comedy is a real gem. No matter what the one star reviews below so ignorantly say. It's definitely one of the best jobs Michael Keaton has ever done. The movie has funny written all over it. It's too bad the people down below have no sense of humor. Keaton stars as Jack Butler, a man who is laid off from his job. As soon as he is, his wife (Teri Garr) decides to go back to work and gets a great job. Poor Jack is now home dealing with all of the normal, everyday things that you usually do. He is raising the kids, doing the dishes, laundry, making dinner. He has even started to watch soaps and hang out the neighborhood ladies. Grocery shopping is a nightmare for him. The review on this page stated that the movie is sexist. Please. People make arguments over something that's not even there. Sigh. This movie has many classic scenes as well as dialogue that you can repeat over and over. The supporting cast includes a number of familiar faces: Martin Mull, Jeffrey Tambor, and Christopher Lloyd. This is a wonderful family comedy that deserves a lot more attention than it got.

Funny how things have changed since then. With the poor economy and the changing gender roles in society today, it's not so uncommon to find a man staying at home with the kids. More women are working than ever before, and more than half of the married women are the breadwinners of their families. It might have been a little strange back then, but it's become more commonplace now. Who knows? Maybe someday we'll go back to these simplier times. I see a world of slightly more courtesy in their working worlds, well behaved kids, and little to no dysfunction.

Overall rating: 8 out of 10.
