    I just watched this 1989 movie. How the heck I missed ever seeing it is beyond me. It was really, really good. I have never been a huge Ted Danson fan (other than Cheers days maybe), but he did a wonderful job..and so did the rest of the cast. I miss Jack Lemmon. He was one of my all time favorites. Too bad he's gone.

    Dad was a great family drama, about how hard life could struck sometimes. It showed how in critical conditions of life we appreciate our family more. Ted Danson's character returned home to take care for his aging father, a role for Jack Lemmon.He was obsessed with his job and making money that he lost many precious moments of being with his parents, his son,and now he was faced with his dad;s illness and he tried to do all he can to help him out of this situation and spent as many times possible before he died.Ted Danson & Jack Lemmon played their role perfectly. It was great to see these 2 men of different generations trying to reach each other again.

    Tear jerker, run of the mill however, Jack Lemmon is the one to watch in this one.

    Cute. Nice developing, once again, of the father-son relationship. Family drama, and good performances. Jack Lemmon's just awesome, he steals the whole show. Danson's good, yet he's obviously shadowed by Lemmon. Nice to see a really young Ethan Hawke, too.
