Man of the House
PG | 96 min | Saturday, February 25, 1995
1995's Man of the House, a comedy from Walt Disney Pictures, stars Chevy Chase, Farrah Fawcett and Jonathan Taylor Thomas as a would-be family that has some issues to deal with before the "family" label can be applied.
Six-year old Ben (Thomas), sees his pleasant family suddenly turned upside down by his father's abandonment to take up with his secretary. Ben's mother (Fawcett) is forced to try and console her son, while also determined to treat the situation as a chance to make a "fresh start." To that end, they move into a new apartment and take on this new beginning together.
Five years pass, during which mother and son have developed an admirable bond, which is threatened when the mother starts dating attorney Jack Sturges (Chase). Ben and Sturges struggle to develop a relationship, further complicated by a death threat to Sturges from a convicted criminal, as well as Ben's over-protective attitude towards his mother.
Chase is effective as the suitor, while Fawcett and Thomas interact well, making the relationship believable.
