Just leave your brain at the door and have a good laugh
This was one of Don Ameche's last films and he gives a great performance. This man was truly one of Hollywood's "greats" and I am so happy that he was finally recognized with that Oscar for Cocoon after such a long spell of being forgotten. I had a lot of guilty laughs watching this film. Some people might say that it is in poor taste because his character suffers from Alzhiemers (in the film they call it senile dementia). Just leave your brain at the beginning of the film and have a good time. Tom Selleck obviously went through a lot of pain making this film (ha ha). You should have a few guilty laughs at this as well. Wendy Crewson is wonderful as his understanding wife. This film may be the intellectual equivalent of a MacDonald's cheeseburger, but just watch it and have a good laugh!
