Dick and Mandy, a young working class couple, move into a council house in Canterbury, and find Mr. Butcher, one of their former teachers, living next door.

A scalding, hilarious play written by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Jules Feiffer, Grown Ups careens with a unique comic energy. It centers on a family dominated by the smothering, sanctimonious love of Helen, the mother of our middle-aged hero Jake. Played by All in the Family's Jean Stapleton, she is a masterpiece of malignant maternity while her husband, played by Martin Balsam, cushions himself with stiff drinks and asks everyone, "So what's new?" Charles Grodin plays the long-suffering son and Marilu Henner of Taxi is his uneasy wife. The combination of play and cast is irresistible. Spicy and sharp, Grown Ups is a comic feast.
A bizarre love triangle between a teenage boy, his childlike, ailing mother, and the lonely manager of a desolate caravan park.
Vassar College's Department of Child Study produced this training film for nursery school staff, one of a series on "Preschool Incidents." Unstaged playground scenes of two to five-year-olds in conflict are shown, then repeated for further analysis and discussion.

Anita, Rita, Ricardo and Andrés have been attending a school for children with Down syndrome for 40 years. After all this time, they are starting to tire of this safe, familiar environment.

Sadly, the society they live in is not equipped to cater to their desire for more independence. In spite of the training they receive on becoming “responsible adults,” all four of them remain dependent on others to make decisions for them, much to their frustration.
