Nothing in Common (1986)

This disjointed but still effective comedy features the strained relationship of workaholic son David Basner (Tom Hanks) and his crusty father, Max (Jackie Gleason) which undergoes a serious transformation, leading to a better understanding between the two.

It wanders all over the place but the lead performances are good and the story rings with many truths.
