A young man (Scott Baio) is a very successful Wall Street executive, but he quits his job and decides to
concentrate on his family bakery, where he works with his two brothers. He also proposes to a woman he's only met once, because she's the
daughter of his ailing surrogate mother whom he wants to make happy. Also with Kristin Minter, Rosemary Prinz, Shuler Hensley, John Seitz
and Billy Mott. [1:45]
SEX/NUDITY 4 - A woman lifts a man's sweater and caresses his abdomen, they kiss passionately, then we see them in bed
kissing and rolling (we see the side of her bare breast and his bare back and chest). A man and a woman kiss a few times, and a man and a
woman flirt. A woman wears a low-cut dress that exposes cleavage in a couple of scenes and photos show women in cleavage revealing dresses
and also show men and women kissing. We see a man in his boxer shorts (he's bare chested). Two men talk about their sexual activities and
one is accused of being very active with many partners. A woman talks to her daughter about sex. A man touches another man's crotch while
measuring him for a suit and the man protests. A man reaches into his pants pretending to expose himself. A woman admires a man.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A woman dies. A man grieves over learning that his wife is dying, and a man yells and cries uncontrollably
when he learns a woman is dying. A man throws a loaf of bread at another man. A man pounds on a table in anger and frustration and a man
pounds on a floor with his walker and yells. A woman complains of pain in her abdomen and we learn that she has a large cancerous mass
(she winces in a couple of scenes and asks a nurse for more medication). Two men yell at each other and call each other names in many
scenes. A man uses a walker because he is missing a leg (we see him attaching his artificial limb in one scene).
