Man of the House

James Orr (1994)

U Certificate


Our Score
This is more a vehicle for Jonathan Taylor Thomas, a big favourite stateside in TV series Home Improvement, than for the nominal star, Chevy Chase, reprising his now familiar nice-but-dim persona. In an uninspired comedy, well-meaning Chase moves in with girlfriend Farrah Fawcett and attempts to bond with her son (Thomas), with disastrous consequences. There's a syrupy undertone to much of the juvenile slapstick and not even Cheers star George Wendt can wring many laughs out of the dull script and direction.


A youngster is doing his best to make life hell for his potential stepfather and sabotaging all his plans to marry his mother, when a series of unforeseen events brings the pair closer together. Disney comedy, starring Chevy Chase, Farrah Fawcett, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and George Wendt.
