Businessman Larry Burrows (James Belushi) has a wife who ignores him, a screwball friend who won't leave him alone, and a car that continually breaks down. All that and more is enough to give him a mid-life crisis. After his car stalls once more, he enters a bar looking for help and encounters a bartender (Michael Caine) who shows him what his life would have been like, if he hadn't struck out in a baseball game back in high school. ~ John Bush, Rovi

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A bland comic fantasy.
An awful redemption flick.
Another one of these comedies shooting for a "Capraesque" vibe, resulting in a limp comedy with some mild charm and loads of predictability.
Campy and stupid, but sort of fun.
Yes, it's a ripoff of "It's a Wonderful Life" but it works. Belushi is funny, and the point is still well taken.
