A rich but troubled family find their lives altered by the arrival of a vagrant who tries to drown himself in their swimming pool.
One of two cinema feature film collaborations of actor Richard Dreyfuss and director Paul Mazursky. The movies are Moon Over Parador (1988) and Down and Out in Beverly Hills (1986).
Barbara Whiteman: Mmmmmm?
Dave Whiteman: I thought we weren't going to drink any more.
Barbara Whiteman: Well, Dave, yeah. It's true. I *am* a vegetarian. But I hear... that vodka... comes from a potato!
Barbara says to the radio psychologist that she is 26 years old, while Bette Midler was 41. Dave says he's 27, while Richard Dreyfuss was 39. Both appear too old for the stated ages. However, given the general age of their children they are clearly lying.
The credits open on scenes showing sites featured in Beverly Hills The end credits scroll on the alleyway outside the Whiteman's home, during which a bum pushing a trolley walks by, pauses to check on the Whiteman's dumpster, then continues on his way.
