Billy Galvin

Thoughtful but hokey film about a father (Karl Malden) and son (Lenny Von Dohlen) who for some reason has a grudge upon each other both becomes employed to work on a massive construction project. Like magic, they come to terms with one another. The terrible dialogue contains major flaws. The acting is usually bad but begins to liven up toward the conclusion. A terrible musical score. Billy Galvin is not a complete waste, but it isn't worth seeing.
