Movie Info

Successful playwright Al Pacino can't get any work done as long as he is pestered by his wacko wife Tuesday Weld. Making things worse are the couple's obstreperous children, many of them products of her previous marriages. Just as Pacino is completing his latest work, his wife walks out on him. That's the good news: the bad news is that he's saddled with a bunch of snot-nosed kids. Still and all, Pacino finds time to inaugurate an affair with his play's leading lady, played by Dyan Cannon, while

Hokey but pleasant and any movie with that cast is at least worth one viewing.

This critically panned film is an underrated gem. Pacino treats us with another intriguing, convincing character exploration in this bittersweet comedy. Although there are oddly staged scenes and some awkward dialogue, this movie is very entertaining and, at times, quite moving. Al Pacino never fails to disappoint, and his nuanced portrayal of this unique character is fascinating to watch.

This is probably one of Pacino's best movies and every time I see that it is on, I make sure to watch it. Add Alan King and Dyan Cannon in and some pretty funny parts and the movie is underrated. It shows Pacino in a different light and some of his lines are priceless. the storyline is unique as well with Tuesday Weld leaving Pacino for another man and him having to juggle 5 kids from different marriages and trying to write a hit Broadway play. You never heard too much about this movie but even the kids are funny. Great movie!
