A decent drama, but disorienting storylines

This movie, about a successful advertising executive who finds his freewheeling life crashing to a halt when his parents end their longtime marriage, is an okay drama movie.

First of all, it had some good actors, but Tom Hanks' David Basner as the protagonist was a little annoying in the beginning because of his intense behavior, but that's not Hanks' fault. Despite a decent humor, the story and the comedy felt very split from each other. The humor lines felt very extra. I also think the story didn't fully deliver because of too many storylines or supporting characters; Max Basner, Lorraine Basner, Donna Mildred Martin and Cheryl Ann Wayne. I wasn't sure of what storyline or character I should follow. At first, the story was about David's romantic life, but suddenly it was about his family. I think my reason is that we didn't dive deep enough into neither of those storylines or characters. I think it would be better if we went deeper into only one of them to get the whole package as a movie, even though the story about David and Max did get better in the final scenes.

In conclusion, despite having some good actors and moments of humor, the disorienting storylines and lack of depth in supporting characters hindered the overall impact of this drama. Focusing on one storyline would have helped create a more cohesive and fulfilling movie experience.

Muddy but Well-Intentioned, This is More Drama Than Comedy

Jackie Gleason, in his final film role, plays the icy, stonewalling father of a hyperactive, professional Tom Hanks. There's a good message at the core of this one, about the impenetrable veneer expected of men from his generation and the dire effects it bore on those around him. Hanks, a smooth-talking corporate '80s ad exec, and Gleason, a foot-to-pavement salesman struggling to deal with the end of his career, manage well with the heavy stuff while occasionally injecting a few welcome dashes of humor and sarcasm to the mix. The film is flawed, though, in its unbridled lack of restraint. Every last supporting character hints at a big, convoluted back story and many of them are halfheartedly explored. That diverts attention away from the key players and leaves us with what seems like one big, fuzzy, unfocused batch of incomplete or unfulfilling arcs. There's simply too much to keep track of, and too much time wasted with characters we don't care about. Noteworthy as the stage where Hanks showed he could be more than just a comic player, but otherwise it's too overstuffed and vague to recommend.
