Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 03/04/1994
"...Refreshing misanthropy....[Fox] displays deft timing and all the sprightly energy his role demands..."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/11/1994
"...[Hartman] steals each scene he's in and makes statements...zing like the poetry of Aristophanes..."
Variety - 02/28/1994
"...D'Abo invests her role with a refreshing wit, and Douglas' iron man has just enough humanity and canniness to keep the audience off-balance and alert..."
Los Angeles Times - 03/04/1994
"...It is gratifying to see a great veteran star in a major role....[Douglas] brings a lifetime of experience in a portrayal rich in sly, deft nuances and details..."

Product Description:

Uncle Joe McTeague (Kirk Douglas) is a cantankerous, contemptible old man but he's filthy rich. In fact, Joe's so wealthy that his nieces and nephews, the only kin he's got, have been indulging and obliging the miserable geezer for years in hopes of inheriting his money. When Joe finds a barely post-pubescent English tart (Olivia d'Abo) to cater to his every whim, the family goes bonkers, fearing they'll lose all the money to the young stranger. But they come together instead and formulate Plan B. This leads the family to bowling failure Daniel McTeague (Micheal J. Fox), a good-hearted, socially conscious relative even old uncle Joe won't refuse.
