Joe wanted to make movies, but ended up making commercials for a big pharmaceutical firm. We understand that his work is quite good, but Joe is a "nice" guy. Not a fighter. He doesn't fight for promotions like others do, so he is taken for granted and they can barely remember his name. He didn't even fight when his materialistic wife dumped him for a much younger, and empty headed actor. But he loves his 12-year-old daughter so much that he has turned her into a tomboy. It's a "guy" fantasy, remember, so he and his daughter love nothing so much as professional sports. But then something happens that shames him in front of the kid, and the only way he can go forward is to learn to fight back. That's the setup, but the way he deals with it is what makes it a good film. On the downside, all the tail licking over the sports shtick gets tiresome at times, as though there was something spiritually transcendent about shooting a ball through a hoop, but then it can't really be a "guy" film without the obligatory jock strap, right?
