PAR­ENT­HOOD (1989) 7TWO, 11.40PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Ron Howard’s hi­lar­i­ous fam­ily for­tunes saga of­fers near-quint es­sen­tial in­sight into the Amer­i­can mid­dle-class – circa late ’80s, early ’90s – via the odd in­ter­ac­tions of the multi-gen­er­a­tional Buck­man clan. More of­ten than not, timely truths per­me­ate fre­quently funny sit­u­a­tions, and the rev­e­la­tions they un­earth cre­ate a strangely tan­gi­ble de­pic­tion of life on the home­front. Steve Martin, Tom Hulce and Ja­son Ro­bards shine. ★★★
