Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

In this sentimental made-for-TV family movie, Ben Diskin plays a boy embarrassed by his short, balding dad (Woody Allen regular Wallace Shawn, who really should know better). When the kid meets the good-looking, athletic Nick Cassavetes, he convinces him to be his surrogate father at school. You can probably guess the mushy ending.
