Max Dugan Returns is a 1983 American comedy-drama film starring Jason Robards as the titular Max Dugan, Marsha Mason as his daughter Nora, Donald Sutherland, Kiefer Sutherland, and Matthew Broderick as grandson Michael (in his first movie appearance as well as a first appearance for Kiefer). This would be the last Neil Simon movie to be directed by Herbert Ross.
Max Dugan (Jason Robards), the long-lost father of Nora McPhee (Marsha Mason), drops in on her as various trials and tribulations have befallen her. With him, he brings some promises and the news of his impending death. He also meets and befriends his grandson Michael (Matthew Broderick). Donald Sutherland plays the police officer who helps Nora after her car is stolen and becomes her boyfriend in the process.
Former professional baseball player Charley Lau appears as himself having been hired by Dugan to coach Michael to hit better for his little league team.

Kiefer Sutherland has a bit part, playing one of Michael's friends hanging around outside his high school. Kiefer shares no scene with his father.
The real-life father of Matthew Broderick (whose birthname is James Joseph Broderick), noted character actor James Broderick died (November 1, 1982) around the time of the making of this film. Co-star Jason Robards, who knew James and was a friend, really helped Matthew through his grief with the loss of his father.
