I've been a big fan of Terry Kinney since Oz so I was excited to see that his directorial debut was coming out this summer. It is by far the funniest movie I've ever seen about Alzheimer's.
Alan Alda and Matthew Broderick make a good pair. The comedy is sentimental at times and other times quite broad. And a big part of the plot is about selling a rare baseball card. The inner baseball card geek in me got pumped up for discussions of mint and near mint and good and very good and how good really means bad. I haven't laughed so hard in a knowing way in a movie since that fantasy baseball scene in Knocked Up.
This was a nice, low key, charming movie. Nothing spectacular but fairly entertaining nonetheless.
