Harrison Ford gets shot in the head during a convenience store robbery and goes full on retard. But actually he goes from being a ruthless, philandering lawyer to being a nice guy, good husband and father. Of course, all the other lawyers at the firm laugh at him and stuff, but it doesn't matter because being a retard is the way to go.

Overall this was a good movie, but I don't think I'll ever watch it again. It kept me entertained for a couple hours but it wasn't really memorable.

Ford is great but he has to be in order keep this movie even close to average. Full review later.

The real question is why didn't this film get nominated?

Dreadful. I considered it an insult to my backside that was forced to sit through such nonsense.

A man is caught in a robbery, shot in the head, is put in a coma and comes out of the coma not knowing who he or his family are and needs to relearn life again.

Cliche, mawkish-ridden sentimental tripe. One of Mike Nichols' worst films.

Simplistic and oftentimes implausible but entertaining enough.

Mom recommended this, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't really exciting. Still a nice story and great acting from Harrison Ford.

Ford is good in every movie he plays. This one runs slow but it's very interesting and has a great point in the end.

Good, but not great. Had tons of potential but pulls its punches and falls back on cliches. Plot is a bit choppy and uneven too - too many blind alleys, when the writer and director should be concentrating on more profound statements.

I would have expected much better from director Mike Nichols and writer JJ Abrams. Still, fairly moving and interesting.

Great performance by Harrison Ford in the lead role. Good support from Annette Bening.

I wanted to like this so badly. It was Harrison Ford when he was still cool, re-teaming with his 'Working Girl' director, Mike Nichols. Unfortunately, it was too sappy and simple-minded for my tastes.

I liked this movie when I was a kid, but now I dunno. It's watchable, but ugh, it's such a soap opera for the most part. Harrison Ford is still the man, and there is moments that still grab me. Ive never been a huge Mike Nichols fan anyway. I admit, mostly becuase I don't care for the subject matter in his films.

(1991) Regarding Henry

(Contains spoilers)
An renown lawyer Henry Turner(Harrison Ford) receives a gun shot wound to the head because of some robbery turning him to act like a child again with his wife Sarah and 12 year old daughter helping him to rehabilitate. Once he becomes better and as the film progresses he finds out once becoming a softee that his old life was the pits and was an immoral bastard since he was a successful sleazy lawyer. So basically even though he's not his same old self again the law firm still continue to pay him- just for showing up. And realizes that his old self is more sleazy and self absorbed than his new life, where he used to cheat on his wife Sarah and regularly always ignores his 12 year old daughter.

Throughout at least on the first hour, I was wondering whether the bastard that shot him was ever going to get caught, but the film kind of turns around and forget that he even exists and says that those shots- one to the head was a mixed blessing which in real life- hardly happens. And finally decides to leave a great gig by being paid to show up to do nothing since he can't really be hired to do anything else since he still has that bullet lodged in his brain. I mean for the short term he gets to spend more quality time with his wife and child but that can only last so long with the money they have - it's hardly anything.

The plot is somewhat unusual and kind of silly (I'm happier with brain damage?), but the movie does have heart and charm. There is a needless plot twist toward the end to create tension unecessarily, but overall it's just a feel good movie. Not a great feel good movie, but a feel good movie none the less.

80er Jahre Film und Musik aber gutes Thema. Als Psychologe fand ich das ganze natürlich sehr interssant und war ein wenig erstaunt, wie schnell er wieder seine alten Fälle verstehen konnte. Aber eine schöne Gesellschaftskritik.
