Wonderful Movie
23 May 2005 | by DJDiGSee all my reviews

This movie is one of my new favorites.

When a sports magazine gets bought out, Dave Foreman, an ad sales executive (Dennis Quaid) finds himself playing second-in-command to Carter Duryea (Topher Grace), a hotshot barely half his age.

Dave becomes both a rival and father figure to Carter as the two struggle to get through life.

Carter invites himself over to Dave's house to escape his loneliness, where he meets Dave's daughter Alex (Scarlett Johansson).

The movie is more about emotion than plot. The acting comes across so genuine and moving.

Viewers of all ages would enjoy this movie, not just fans of Topher Grace.

It has a rather unusual ending which adds to the movie's touching nature.
