Goofs

Henry tries to cook with pot by adding buds to a soup. Cooking in this way would make you sick, not high. The THC has to be extracted from the weed (usually by simmering in butter then cooled, which can then be used to cook with). The way Henry uses it, the THC would cook away, and then remaining plant material would be bitter enough to make him sick. See more »

Quotes

The Girl: [narrating] Some people try to hold on to their memories. Others try to forget. Neither works. And after enough time passes by, you find you ain't the same as you used to be.

Worth seeing and I think its only a few years away from Sudeikis really breaking out and getting an Oscar nomination.
6 March 2017 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"Most stories ain't true, and usually don't start where you'd expect." Henry (Sudeikis) is a boring husband who does everything by the book every though his wife tries to change him. After a tragic accident takes her like Henry is lost and has no idea what to do. When he meets the girl (Williams) that his wife was talking about he decides to help her complete her dream, and hopefully find himself in the process. This is a very good movie that really shows how heartfelt Sudeikis can be. There are very few movies that have come out recently that show true heart and how good people can truly be. This is one of them. The movie itself is, although very predictable and generic, good and very much worth seeing. After watching weeks and weeks of depressing movies like Manchester By The Sea, Nocturnal Animals and Moonlight this one seems like a much needed break. Although this is also very sad in some parts this one seemed to have what the others didn't…hope. Overall, worth seeing and I think its only a few years away from Sudeikis really breaking out and getting an Oscar nomination. I give this a high B.
