MGM'S 'GETTING EVEN WITH DAD' WRAPS

 SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Principal photography wrapped yesterday, Sunday, Oct. 3, on MGM's engaging comedy "Getting Even with Dad," which teams two of today's favorite stars. Macaulay Culkin ("Home Alone I & II," "The Good Son") and Ted Danson ("Made in America," television's "Cheers") star in the story of an enterprising youngster who resorts to blackmail to force his ex-con father to turn over a new leaf. The film is scheduled to open wide on Father's Day weekend, June 17.
 Under the direction of Howard Deutch ("Pretty in Pink," "Article 99"), "Getting Even with Dad" was filmed entirely on location in San Francisco. Katie Jacobs and Pierce Gardner produce under their Jacobs/Gardner Productions banner.
 Also starring in the film are: Glenne Headly ("Dick Tracy") as an ambitious policewoman whose badge can't shield her from Ray's considerable charms; Saul Rubinek ("Unforgiven") and Gailard Sartain ("Fried Green Tomatoes") as Ray's two accomplices who become unwitting victims of Timmy's scheme; Hector Elizondo ("Pretty Woman") as a police lieutenant; Sam McMurray ("L.A. Story") as Headly's partner; and Kathleen Wilhoite ("Fire in the Sky") as Timmy's aunt.
 "Getting Even with Dad" began principal photography on July 8, 1993. The production team utilized several recognizable landmarks in the San Francisco Bay area, including Fisherman's Wharf; St. Peter and Paul's Church in the North Beach neighborhood; Golden Gate Park's California Academy of Sciences and the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum; Candlestick Park during a San Francisco Giants game; War Memorial Plaza; and Union Square. Several scenes were filmed on cable cars and BART trains. Outside of the city, filming took place at the Great America amusement park near San Jose, Briones Park in Orinda and a miniature golf course in Marin County.
