Although it's one Neil Simon's lesser known movies, I think it's one of his best and certainly his sweetest. Not much happens as far as the plot is concerned, but the magic is in the performances. Marsha Mason and Matthew Broderick are able to rattle off funny one-liners while remaining believable as mother and son.
Underrated little gem written and produced by the great Neil Simon. Stars the great Marsha Mason, a very young Matthew Broderick and the always amazing Jason Robards. This one stands the test of time..
Max Dugan Returns is an interesting film. It is about an English teacher who is not happy about the reunion with her favor. Marsha Mason and Jason Robards give awesome performances. The script is well written by Neil Simon. Herbert Ross did a great job directing the movie. I liked this motion picture because of the comedy and drama. Max Dugan Returns is a must see.
excellent movie with great actors/actresses and wonderful writing. the quotes back and forth are funny...when nora's car is stolen, the refrigerator is broke, she goes to answer the door and says - please let it be the united way....
