Comedic gifts of Michael Keaton

Michael Keaton demonstrates that a man can run the household, with hilarious results as he learns how to tame appliances, deal with repairmen and lustful women, and relate to his wife and children in a new way. Men will cheer as he learns to multi-task, while the ladies will enjoy how he comes to appreciate what a housewife really goes through each day.

A clever subplot pits Terri Garr against sly Martin Mull, and adds more humor to the story.

I got this to replace a damaged one. The story itself is pretty predictable and I didn't enjoy it much. Maybe more of a chick flick?
