This film should have won an Oscar!
29 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen.

I highly commend Harrison Ford for playing the lead role & sending quality messages to the public through film, which has become the leading form of world-view communication. Family & the importance of remaining faithful to your spouse is portrayed in a wonderful, positive way. It also sends the message that lying is wrong--which it is--& a true friend doesn't gossip behind your back. Throughout the movie, Harrison Ford's performance remains consistent & gripping, & frequently comical--as in the scene in the library & at the breakfast table. The only problem I found with this film was the soundtrack--WOW. However distracting the music, Regarding Henry deserves to watched over & over again.
