As subtle as the bowling ball that bonks John Candy on the head early on, this film is another misuse of the mega-comic's talents. The highlight of the movie—about a misfit and the nieces and nephew who put up with him—is the familial chemistry that develops between Candy and young Jean Kelly. Teen titan John Hughes directed, often tastelessly. (MCA)
