Rating: C- -- Neil Simon reworked his play Gingerbread Lady for this tale of alcoholic actress (real wife Marsha Mason) and precocious daughter, but the result is just as stagy, schmaltzy and predictable, with the expected witty but utterly theatrical one-liners. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- Anyone consulting this movie for insights into alcoholism would be better off asking a bartender. Full Review

Description by

Broadway actress Georgia Hines (Marsha Mason) made a decision six years earlier to give up custody of her daughter, Polly (Kristy McNichol), in order to "straighten out her life." But now, just as Georgia is about to star in a play, Polly decides she's going to move in with her mother.
