We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

The trials and tribulations of family life, as seen through the eyes of three generations. Gil Buckman (Steve Martin) is a father rather too determined to give his kids the love and care which had been withheld from him as a child. Meanwhile, his Yuppie brother-in-law Nathan (Rick Moranis) is preparing his 3-year-old daughter for life in the fast lane by an accelerated learning programme which causes her to miss out on the more basic joys of childhood. Gil's sister Helen (Dianne Wiest), a single parent, struggles to control her uncommunicative son and wild daughter, while black sheep of the family Larry (Tom Hulce) returns to sponge off his father Frank (Jason Robards) in order to pay off gambling debts.

Synopsis

Director Ron Howard teams with Steve Martin and an all-star cast to create an hilarious, touching and unforgettable portrait of life's most rewarding occupation: Parenthood. The Buckmans are a modern-day family facing the age-old dilemma of trying to raise children the "right" way. At the centre of the storm is Gil (Steve Martin), who manages to keep his unique sense of humour while attempting to maintain a successful career and be a loving husband and parent, all at the same time. As Gil and the rest of the Buckmans discover, being the "perfect" parent often means just letting children be themselves. Mary Steenburgen, Rick Moranis, Tom Hulce, Jason Robards and Dianne Wiest add vibrant performances to this heart-warming comedy that Gannett Newspapers calls a "funny, touching experience that will sweep you away."
