“Still funny upon seeing it the second time – 20 years after its first-run viewing. Every character is likable – Nolte, Dreyfuss and Midler in the starring roles, and every one of the primary co-star and the supporting cast.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNolte is an outstanding actor, and this role and his harder-edged character in the great u0026quot;North Dallas Forty,u0026quot; are among his very best. Many actors exhibit far different personalities off-screen than u0026quot;onu0026quot; ( e.g. Nicholson), or are downright goofy in real life (Cruise, Jolle, Affleck/Lopez, etc.). But Iu0026#39;ve never seen any whom I wish might be more like his on-screen persona than Nolte. The guy has charisma, believability, and is completely likable in every role.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHere, he staggers, pretty much literally, homeless, into the mansion of a Beverly Hills wealthy family as dysfunctional (although pleasantly so) as any on the planet.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOf course, his presence and u0026quot;counselu0026quot; take care of all their neuroses – bringing a relaxed enjoyment of life to Dreyfuss, a reawakening of sexual delight in Midler, enjoyment (and relief from anorexia/bulimia) to the winsome daughter, direction to the frustrated adolescent son, happiness to the sexy Latino maid, and effecting a change in the family pooch to where he can now enjoy the pleasant life of a contented, happy pet.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe diversions and hi-jinks in the story are also pleasant – often these necessary components of a film can detract – and the equally necessary closing events lead to a pleasant rapprochement and a happy ending.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAn excellent, u0026quot;feel goodu0026quot; viewing experience.”
