Stuart Saves His Family (1995)

Another character made famous on “Saturday Night Live” ― Al Franken’s dysfunctional Stuart Smalley — jumps to the big screen in “Stuart Saves His Family.” The 12-step-program-obsessed Stuart is confronted by the cancellation of his “Daily Affirmation” TV show and his wacked-out family’s antics.

This comedy bumbles things by trying to pull heartstrings instead of assaulting the funny bone. The Harold Ramis-directed disappointment also stars Laura San Giacomo and Vincent D’Onofrio. Rated PG-13.
