The pairing of Nicholas Cage with Michael Caine, as son and father respectively, is remarkably effective – yet I’m still trying to puzzle out how the Americans can rate this movie as a comedy drama. A drama, yes: and a rather good one at too. But let’s leave it at that, shall we?

Sad-faced Nicholas Cage is a marvelous actor, and here he plays David Spritz: successful weatherman on a Chicago TV channel. Well-known professionally wherever he goes, he has about the most screwed-up personal life imaginable! He is separated from his wife Noreen (Hope Davis); his chubby 12-year-old daughter Shelly (Gemmenne de la Peña) is mocked by her peers for wearing tight, revealing clothing; and his 15-year-old son Mike (Nicholas Hoult) has had a drug-related brush with the law, and now has to contend with a passionate, obviously homosexual rehab counselor in Don (Gil Bellows). And because of his TV-given surname, David is often the target of various fast-food items that are flung at him in the street.

Trying to come to terms with all of this is David’s dignified father, Robert (Michael Caine) – a former Pulitzer prizewinner – who has lymphoma…and only a few months to live!

A comedy drama? Give me a break!
Nicolas Cage stars in this off-beat comedy as Chicago TV weather forecaster Dave Spritz, who has a love-hate relationship with his public, and with his eccentric family. When he is given the opportunity to move to New York and hit the big time in his career, Dave makes one last effort to reunite his family, from his wayward children, to his father, the famous writer Robert Spritzel (Michael Caine). But the more Dave tries to take control, the more he finds that life, like the weather, is unpredictable.
