Paul Mazursky's sentimental, upbeat serio-comedy about a widower who takes to the road with his cat after being evicted form his home is lifted above the routine TV Movie of the Week by the solid turn of Art Carney, who won the Best Actor Oscar.

It's not easy to make comedies that work as drama, too. But Carney's acting is so perceptive that it helps this material succeed.

I remember it being better than I expected, but at the same time, that's all I remember. Pleasant, forgettable.

The muted style robs the picture of the liberating point it's meant to make: that imaginative energy transcends the generations.

You may find much of this, despite the apparent sincerity, too cutesy and self-satisfied for its own good.
