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.More
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!More
