Punchline

Remember when you could last stomach Tom Hanks? This stand-up romance marks the last gasp of the pre-rot stage for us, as years of annoying muscular contortions are yet to give the Hanks fizzog the freakish appearance it enjoys now, and – whisper it – he’s rather good at being a stand-up comedian, who’s also a medical student – nice to see that age-old tradition isn’t limited to the UK. Sally Field is inevitably less convincing with her hackneyed Borscht belt banter, but the end result is just about agreeable enough for us to forgive its almost weekly appearance on ITV throughout the 1990s.
