Minor-league baseball announcer Artie Decker (Billy Crystal) and his wife, Diane (Bette Midler), get to see their only child, Alice (Marisa Tomei), very seldom.

    I was suprised how well this movie turned out. This is the type of movie someone with a family would enjoy. Its probably going to be a one time watch but hey it wouldnt hurt to watch just once.

    A simply fabulous movie!! We laughed until we cried:) As baby boomer grandma\'s, we could relate so well. It should have made the Academy Awards. We NEED more comedy and less violence!!
