5.0 out of 5 stars Good Family Film with Many Amusing Highlights
Starring Farrah Fawcett Majors (Sandy, the divorced mom), Chevy Chase (Jack, the hot shot lawyer boyfriend/fiance who moves in with the divorced mom) and Jonathan Taylor Thomas (son, Ben, who has unresolved feelings of abandonment due to his real dad, suddenly and unexpectedly without remorse, having left him and his mom).

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing
Our family are big Chevy Chase fans, so we had high hopes for this movie, as we tend to love any film he is in. Unfortunately, the other actors were so awful that the movie was painful to watch. There was no chemistry between the characters, which made the relationships unbelievable and boring. The only redeeming moments were a few one-liners from Chevy but, to be...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Family Film with Many Amusing Highlights, 31 Jan 2006

Starring Farrah Fawcett Majors (Sandy, the divorced mom), Chevy Chase (Jack, the hot shot lawyer boyfriend/fiance who moves in with the divorced mom) and Jonathan Taylor Thomas (son, Ben, who has unresolved feelings of abandonment due to his real dad, suddenly and unexpectedly without remorse, having left him and his mom). The film is a classic comedy where Ben does what he can to test the new "dad-to-be". In fact, his whole plan is to drive Jack out of his mom's life. The fact is ... his plan backfires.
Jack does whatever it takes to win Ben over. He even joins the Indian scouts, a group in which Ben feigns interest, which he expects will send Jack over the edge. Surprisingly, it has the opposite effect, Ben ends up looking forward to the adventures in the wild, especially a planned canoe trip. Unfortunately, it is the one time Jack does not show up ... convincing Ben, Jack is like his dad.
Bigger problems loom in th horizon for Jack, who is nearly killed by the son of a mob-type stalker and his buddies who are exacting revenge for having placed his father in jail. The climactic build up and suspense in the film is worth viewing for oneself. This is a family entertainment style film where all the problems are resolved in the end. The film is amusing and makes the viewer feel good. While much of the film is predictable, that is why it does not disappoint the viewer. Erika Borsos (bakonyvilla)

This review is from: Man Of The House [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
Our family are big Chevy Chase fans, so we had high hopes for this movie, as we tend to love any film he is in. Unfortunately, the other actors were so awful that the movie was painful to watch. There was no chemistry between the characters, which made the relationships unbelievable and boring. The only redeeming moments were a few one-liners from Chevy but, to be honest, it was like he was acting with his hands tied behind his back. Big flop in our household - very disappointing!

I remembered this movie from when I was a child and ordered it to relive the memory. The acting isn't great, the story is predictable, but I love Chevy Chase and can now relate to it as a step parent! Worth watching and showing children.

5.0 out of 5 stars man of the house [dvd] [1995], 29 Jun 2010
This review is from: Man Of The House [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
the story is an old one,
you know,man meets woman,who intoduces son,
and then the usual battle for supremacy as
far as mom and the house goes,
there are some very funny moments
in this film as well as the usual bonding
tears and drama, a very likeable film,
and a must for any chevy chase fan.
brilliant,william.
