A friend recommended this film to me, though he was only lukewarm about it. The movie had some funny moments, but
very little of interest really happens, and the central point of an extremely valuable baseball card leads to a lot of silly over
the top shenanigans which were more dumb than funny. Not awful, just not much here. A waste of great talent.

Got this for the store as I am a big fan of Alda, and at least in that category it did not disappoint.

A story of dysfunction, memory loss, Alzheimer's and a priceless baseball card. Really, the only description worth the time is the story between Alda and Broderick's characters as uncle and nephew. Both have memory loss issues for different reasons, and they try to muddle through a couple unplanned days together. The centerpiece of their new found time is deciding what to do with their lives and a million dollar baseball card.

All of the performances are painful except for Alda. He alone gives this corny film three stars. I played it in the store which both helped and hurt, as any scene where dumb people are doing dumb things it looks like a slapstick comedy, but when Alda gives those looks of pain and forgetfulness - it seems like a masterpiece. No special features, would be rated R for the tons of "F" bombs and other language.

Unless PG is the new R this movie was mis-rated. Plenty of foul language. Other than that, I agree with those who said Alan Alda carried it; his matter-of-fact comedic approach never disappoints.

Except maybe for the cast, especially Alan Alda and a few laughs along the way. Other than that, a waste of my time. Hollywood can do better. I think.

Hi! I'm glad I bought this video. I usually get them out of the library, and I belong to 2 different regional libraries, but neither one had this. I'm brain-injured and I could really relate to and understand from personal experience the issues Alan Alda and Matthew Broderick had. As for buying it from Amazon, I feel that I got it at a VERY reasonable price and it was as stated--LIKE NEW.

I enjoyed the interactions of characters in this story; very down to earth. Funny and awkward situations regarding a family member with dementia. I'd recommend this movie for family viewing.

A semi-sweet comedy, with a stellar cast, about our misgivings and growing old and all the steps that happen along the way.
