Critic Reviews for Diminished Capacity
Sherwood Kiraly's slight script only makes this embarrassment of riches seem more embarrassing.
Alda's Hawkeye Pierce charm gives way to something snappish and cagey, while Broderick's fussy stiffness is perfect.
Didn't we invent film festivals so we could sequester all the star-studded 'how I spent my summer vacation' indie film projects and keep them out of our arthouses?
The actors look as if they're having a reasonably fine time, but there's no sense of commitment here, no sense that this was a movie that absolutely, passionately had to be made.
Audience Reviews for Diminished Capacity
Hilarious movie by Terry Kinney. A good story plot that follows Cooper (Matthew Broderick) who deals with random memory loss due to an injury from a fight. Cooper is a comic editor who tries to regain all that he had previously before the accident. He returns to his hometown to care for his uncle, and meets uo with his childhood sweetheart. They embark on an incredible journey to sell a rare baseball card and a painting. That's where things change, for better or worse. Great cast- Alan Alda, Virginia Madsen, Bobby Cannavale, and Matthew Broderick. Worth seeing.
this was funny, sad, and gave us all a look at the possibilities of aging, our parents and our own, BRAVO! MR ALDA!!!!
Some first-rate performers working beautifully together. Two characters both with mental diminuendo may be much for one script, however well played by Matthew Broderick and Alan Alda. Three or more might establish it as a motif, but two is neither here nor there, except for viewers who are also there. Still there are many charming moments. And Bobby Carnavale is a vivid case against the mentally undiminished.
