    Good movie. Nostalgic 80's with the big mobile phones, wild sunglasses, and opening tune, and formulaic in that the poor three-dimensional slobs are shown to have more substance in their lives than the rich two-dimensional snobs (Hollywood has always caricatured the comfortable). However, it has a good-hearted quality and seems more "real" than similar flicks, even with its preposterous plot, and has a great line by Roddy M's butler near the end and a truism in the middle more true now than 25 years ago: "They have enough pals - they need a father!" Russel's character having the surname "Proffitt" is fitting, for he profits in the end in more ways than one. He also serves as a prophet (and he's a carpenter, too) in a way, for he actually espouses God's will (albeit unintentionally) through his words and actions toward Hawn's "Annie," transforming her into a more whole and giving person for the benefit of all.

    Snooty rich girl hires a handyman to build a cabinet for her shoes. He dislikes her because of her attitude and she thinks he is disgusting. When she falls overboard from her yacht one night, her husband takes advantage of a good thing and leaves her in the hospital where she finds that she has amnesia. The disgusting handyman discovers a way to get even with her for not paying his bill and tells the hospital that she is his wife. Suddenly she finds herself married, she thinks, to a slob with three children. She is confused but okay with her life until her real husband appears on the scene.
