This low-key comedy about memory loss offers mild pleasures but is too bland to fully resonate. Read critic reviews

    wanted to like this more, alda and broderick do good work, but story is sloppy, but there are good moments to be had

    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.
