Movie Info

Hard-driving businessman Stewart McBain (Dabney Coleman) demolishes old buildings to make room for the new. But, when he tries to blow up a Brooklyn tenement, his redevelopment plans get him into trouble with a group of civic activists -- and also earn the criticism of his coddled children, Daphne (Uma Thurman), Jimmy (David Hewlett) and Chloe (Suzy Amis). In retaliation, Stewart throws them out, and they find themselves forced to live in the dilapidated building.

    One of my favourite movies where a bunch of rich young adults are forced by their folks to live out on their own. The actors are great, and it's funny as well. I loved this movie.

    A miserable Dabney Coleman comedy with he and his artistic children living in a rundown apartment building. I didn't realize a younger Uma Thurman was in this one.

    Got this movie for one reason Suzy Amis. And its a crazy movie, about a rich dysfunctional family. And when the father goes to see the daughter perform at school, he snaps because of her body painting, so he throws his kids out into a city apartment house to let them fend for there own way, so begins the story and about the only thing I found interesting was the Body Art, it was so cool and its worth watching the movie for, and I also like the homeless magician shitty, he was such a good actor, reminded me a little of cannery row. but still with all this the movie only gets 3 stars, the art work 5 stars, but its the movie we are to grade here.

    Strange movie with colorful characters. I liked the artist sister the most and her project of photographing murals with live people blended into the art.
