Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Nothing in Common was an attempt by Tom Hanks to add some dramatic credentials to his status as a comic lead. The first half of the film, dealing with his character's life in the advertising business, has enough comedy in it that the audience accepts Hanks more easily when the film turns melodramatic in the second half. Jackie Gleason is good as the father, but his work is occasionally undone by the maudlin scenarios he is forced to play. Director Garry Marshall was shooting for a Terms of Endearment-like mix of comedy and pathos, but he is at heart a comedy director. The laughs in the film are crisply paced, occasionally pointed, and generally entertaining. Those sequences are so much stronger than the tearjerking ending that the audience cannot help but be let down. However, the good material in this film makes it one of the more interesting films from Hanks in the 1980s.

    Watch it for Jackie!

    This movie isn't about about Tom Hanks, it's about Jackie Gleason. It was his last film before he passed on. One of his best and demostrates the range that he could carry. Jackie helped Tom tremodously as well.

    Good,but slow at times

    Not your tipical Tom Hanks movie. Fun and fast moving in the begining. It runs down and gets a little slow. The ending is worth waiting for.

    Outstanding relationship between Hanks & Gleason!

    Film=Outstanding. Gleason's relationship with Hanks as Father and Son is sheer Genus as the two of them struggle with past life of Hanks mom and Dad-Gleason's pending Divorce.
