On his way up the corporate ladder, David Basner confronts his greatest challenge: his father.
Because of his talent, charm and wisecracking sense of humor, David Basner (Tom Hanks) is a self-made man on the fast track. He loves his job, his bank account is healthy, and women find him irresistible. Then his father Max (Jackie Gleason, in his final film performance) calls to give David the news that he and David's mother Lorraine (Eva Marie Saint) are calling it quits after 35 years. Now, besides the pressures of his own busy life, David has the new responsibilities of taking care of his crotchety dad and emotionally supporting his mother. Through these experiences, David gains a new understanding and appreciation of his parents, with whom he thought he had nothing in common.
Nothing In Common is a funny, heart-warming film that struck a chord with audiences (who made it a hit) and showcases the charismatic performance of a young Tom Hanks on his way to OscarÂ®-winning superstardom.
