One of the top ten funniest movies ever.
26 April 2002 | by johnkelloggSee all my reviews

Poor Tom Selleck's character provides the viewer with an endless string of laughs (and groans). His relationship with his parents is one that almost everyone can identify with in a loving, but humorous way. Throughout the movie there are funny events that I can see coming but am helpless to warn Selleck about. Also, there are several twists and turns that delight the viewer. All in all, a great comedy.
