Enjoyable to see Billy Crystal direct and star in this heartfelt passion project

Full of heart and humor, a beautiful friendship and many funny moments, this film is just a bit much at the end, just too melodramatic in the final act. Kudos for the diversity in it’s leads and for addressing cognitive decline in a way that felt real for most of the film.

Be Careful

While this might seem like a positive, uplifting family movie; it also has a dark side. Charlie and his friend, Emma, give great performances and are believable as flawed human role models with many good qualities. However, there are many negatives to this movie as well. Several of the movie's jokes are directed in hurtful ways; and there are sex references, crudity, profanity, and blasphemy woven throughout. What I found most troubling about this movie, though, was the scene in which the frustrated dementia patient shouts obscenities at God. Be careful allowing your children to watch.
