Director Terry Kinney's delightfully poignant and bittersweet comedy poses the question: How much is a good memory worth? That's the question that faces newspaper editor Cooper (Matthew Broderick) after a debilitating concussion takes him from the political pages to comic strip detail. Looking for answers, he travels home to Missouri where his now senile Uncle Rollie (Alan Alda) is on the verge of losing his home. When a valuable baseball card is thrown into the mix, these two men along with a motley group of hometown friends, including Cooper's high school sweetheart, Charlotte (Virginia Madsen), head to a memorabilia expo to make the deal of a century, diving headfirst into a snakepit of slick salesmen, crooked dealers, and rabid fans revealing that there are some things in life that you can't put a price on. This indie comedy from IFC Films also stars Dylan Baker, Louis C.K. and Bobby Cannavale in hilarious supporting roles.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The actors look as if they're having a reasonably fine time, but there's no sense of commitment here, no sense that this was a movie that absolutely, passionately had to be made.
Rotten: It has moments of sweetness, but not enough poignancy or wit to turn it into the endearing art-house comedy that it aspires to be.
Rotten: A pleasant enough diversion, but DC will be bettered watched from the horizontal position of a couch, one to which the film seems all too eager to send you.
Rotten: Plays like diminished comedy.
oh.em.gee.......i cant even describe it......just watch it =]
Entertaining and thoughtful
What happens in life? It's great to see both Alan Alda and Mathew Broderick answer the question. Both have their disability but both are seeking to live beyond it. Funny and touching and subtle. Virginia Madsen is always pleasant and the kind of sweet woman you'd want to meet. Baseball angle is played for laughs especially for Cub fans.
Awesome. Funny, smart and touching. great movie. as a chicago cubs fan i really enjoyed this. really good.
