Another movie remake: Bill (Maude) Macy takes over Jackie Gleason's role and Todd Waring takes Tom Hanks's in the tale of a young ad man whose dad drives him nuts. When this series got spun off so did some of the movie's poignancy and restraint, which were more appealing than its gags. Loved the movie. Kinda like the sitcom.
