Touching story. Really good actors, for the most part. Jeff Bridges makes it all completely worth while, in any case.

You wouldn't think a movie with Jeff Bridges, Justin Timberlake, Mary Steenburgen, and the beautiful Kate Mara would be so dull. None of theses people give a horrible performance, there's just really nothing there. It tries to be an evolving drama, but it fails in that sense. It tries to be humorous in sections, and it fails at that too. The story is pretty typical. Carlton Garrett(Justin Timberlake) is the son of baseball great Kyle Garrett(Jeff Bridges). They haven't talked for awhile, but since Carls mom is having medical issues and wants to see Kyle; Carl has to go get him. Carl also brings along his ex-girlfriend now friend, who is contemplating marrying another guy, Carl and Lucy's(Kate Mara) relationship isn't very believable either. Overall the movie is watchable, just nothing special or of particular interest. Easily forgettable.

The story is slow and so is the character development. Bridges is a great actor but not even his charisma or talent can save this material
