Monty Wildhorn, an alcoholic novelist of Westerns, has lost his drive. His nephew pushes him to summer in quiet Belle Isle. He begrudgingly befriends a newly single mom and her 3 girls who help him find the inspiration to write again.
Rob Reiner and three buddies (Christopher Guest is one) play on the same softball team. The movie is about their personal lives and difficulties they encounter but they still have each other and softball. Parts of the film are humorous and parts are sad. Each of the main characters has different types of trouble. One guy has problems with the mob. One has problems keeping a relationship with a woman and has some personal tragedy to deal with and one places more importance on softball than on his family or on his job. Rob Reiner and his wife (Bonnie Bedelia have marital difficulties. I thought the film was only mediocre at best. This was pretty tough to find.
