After over three decades of marriage Max and Lorraine Basner (Jackie Gleason and Eva Marie Saint) have filed for divorce.  That's bad news for their son, David (Tom Hanks) who must take care of his dad while he's in transition.  David is a successful ad executive attempting to land an important client, but Max's constant nagging makes achieving his goal increasingly difficult.


The historically distant father and son bicker with one another, but inevitably make amends and start anew.


Nothing in Common was a commercial success, earning $32 million at the box office.


Directed by: Garry Marshall
