Mitch became caught up with his career as a sport commentator and journalist. He ignored his girlfriend and did not make time to do things in life that are of the most value to a human being. Morrie was one of Mitch's professors in college and a famous scholar. One day Mitch was watching television and saw Morrie giving an interview stating that he is dying of Lou Gehrig disease or ALS.

For me, at least, the emotions portrayed in tv-movies can get watered down thanks to commercials. Not so with this one, which had me in tears for most of the film. Another great performance from one of our all time greats, Jack Lemmon, plus a very good one from Hank Azaria, and a terrific message on how to be a better person. Highly, highly recommended.
