Abstract:

It's never easy being a single parent. But it's especially difficult for John Leary, because deep down, he's really just a kid himself. Danny DeVito stars as a widower who's determined to make a new life for his two sons, 12-year-old Jack and 3-year-old Dylan. They move to a quirky Oakland neighborhood where John gets a job as the monster host of a late-night horror TV show. Though all three try to cope with the great loss in their lives, Jack, in particular, finds his father's silly antics and increasing alcoholism a confusing burden.
