NOTHING IN COMMON (Theatrical Release USA 1986)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Nothing in Common
—unusual script—allows a last look at the talents of Jackie Gleason who is cast with a young Tom Hanks. The acting is good and shows Director Garry Marshall’s ability to pull a great deal out of an ordinary storyline.
