'80s tearjerker portrays elderly with depth, dignity.
An utterly mechanical tearjerker.
Jack Lemmon and Ted Danson do great work as father and son.
This three generational melodrama is well acted by Jack Lemmon, Ted Danson and Ethan Hawke but it's too sentimental and manipulative for the big screen
This is a maudlin and painfully pedantic piece of filmmaking, and it's not even bad enough to be consistently funny.
Three generations of great performances. A wonderful, touching film.
A multidimensional family drama that deals squarely with the challenges and difficulties of old age and a long marriage.
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.
Jack Lemmon gives his fine performance, even if it is through a mound of make-up.
