This colorful series leads preschoolers room to room through a fantastical dollhouse of delightful mini-worlds and irresistible kitty characters. Little animals embark on big adventures across the U. For such a great cast the acting was very average. Pacino is good but I sensed he didn't see Michael turning out this way and he didn't convince occasionally.
Keaton has little to do and again I felt that her approach to Michael was too forgiving, although maybe I'm not allowing for time. Garcia was OK and faces like Wallach, Hamilton and the like helped. The two worst performances were sadly two of the main ones.

The irony of the title is that it eventually comes to refer to the son, not the father. After he shoots the corrupt cop, Michael hides in Sicily, where he falls in love with and marries Appolonia Simonetta Stefanelli. They do not speak the same language; small handicap for a Mafia wife. He undoubtedly loves Appolonia, as he loved Kay, but what is he thinking here: that he can no longer marry Kay because he has chosen a Mafia life?
Cancel before free trial ends to avoid fees. Dying of cancer, estranged from his drug-addicted son, Lefty takes Donnie under his wing, making the eventual betrayal all the more devastating. Surprisingly, Pacino was the only member of the A-list cast to receive an Oscar nomination.
He plays Lt. Frank Slade, a former Army officer who was forced to retire after being blinded in an accident. Whatever you say about Robert Evans, you can't say he didn't live. See more.
