Douglas, still vigorous at 83, carries the film with one of the best performances of his long career, probably because many of his scenes are straight from the heart.

The star's courageous performance is the main attraction of a movie that shamelessly pours on the sentiment.

Douglas struggles honorably with his stoke-impaired speech and a shoddy story.

I have to admit I shed some sentimental tears during the movie, so it's not really very bad at all, but it could have used a script polish.

Sadly, Kirk Douglas' real-life stroke is the most compelling ingredient in Miramax's new cobbled-together caper flick.

Even in his prime, Douglas couldn't have saved himself from this cliche-ridden script.
