Max Dugan (Jason Robards Jr.) is an elderly ne'er-do-well whose tenuous mob connections have made him persona non grata with his daughter Marsha Mason. Struggling to raise her restless son Matthew Broderick on her own, Mason is none too pleased when Max returns to the family fold with yet another portfolio of get-rich-quick schemes. Forced to leave town due to the investigative habits of cop Donald Sutherland, Mason's new boyfriend, Max does one last good deed to renew the faith of the disillusioned-with-life Broderick. Watch for Donald Sutherland's son Kiefer in his film debut, and for former Kansas City Royals' batting coach Charlie Lau in the baseball-game finale.

This is one of my most favorite all-time movies ever. It's funny, serious, and the characters are the best combination who are all leading men/women. They each stand out because Donald Sutherland, Jason Robards, Marsha Mason, Matthew Broderick, the nosey neighbor and supporting cast all play well together. I've seen this at least twenty times and never get tired of it.

Max Dugan (Robards) reenters his daughters life (Mason) but not with get-rich-quick schemes but to reunite and bond with his daughter and grandson understanding he has only six months to live. His monetary legacy in the form of 647,000.00 which was rightfully his, he wants to pass on to them in the form of gifts to make up for his absence. This is a wonderful family film everyone will enjoy.
