Son in Law 1993

     Rebecca Warner lives on a farm in South Dakota and she has decided she wants to go to college in California.  When she arrives, she meets Crawl and he a perpetual student.  Right away, Rebecca decides she’s made a mistake.  This is all to much for her and she wants to go back home but Crawl talks her out of going.  She learns he doesn’t have anywhere to go for Thanksgiving and she invites him to her family farm.
     A lot of complications arise when everyone at home meets Crawl!!  Rebecca doesn't look like the person they took to college too!!  Crawl is a nickname and he's not used to being on a farm.  He wants to help out but he doesn’t know how to do anything!!  There is a LOT going on in this film.  3* (This movie is OK)
95 min, Comedy directed by Steve Rash with Pauly Shore, Carla Gugino, Lane Smith, Cindy Pickett, Mason Adams, Patrick Renna, Dennis Burkley, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Dan Gauthier, Ria Pavia, Lisa Lawrence.

Note:  Imdb 5.6 out of 10, 22% critic 58% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 2*, Amazon 4.5* out of 5* with 346 reviews.

Special Note:  Filmed in Visalia, Wasco, Baldwin Park and California State University Northridge, California.  Ashley Judd auditioned for the role of Rebecca.  This film is called a FOW movie.  FOW means fish out of water for the plot.  Pauly Shore is a stand-up comic and in 1990 his MTV show Totally Pauly became a hit with a lot of fans.  He had a one-hour HBO special and he has been in films from 1987 through 2016.
