Trivia

In his episode of Inside the Actor's Studio, Harrison Ford stated that while doing research for his role as Henry, he met a real life lawyer who had a similar experience to the character after a car crash. The man told him that, like Henry, his job had made him a very bitter person, estranged from his family, and had suffered severe brain damage from his accident. He told him that the experience had changed him and helped him to become, according to Ford, "a different person". See more »

A scummy lawyer gets shot in the head and becomes the nicest guy in the world.....what a great concept!
19 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Henry (Harrison Ford) is a terrific but dastardly lawyer. Defending a hospital for negligence against a poverty-stricken diabetic, Henry wins! Its not the first time the little folks have gotten the shaft from Henry. He lives in a posh New York City apartment with his beautiful wife (Annette Bening) and sweet daughter. Yet, things are strained on the home front between the couple and money goes through their hands like water. However, one evening when Henry slips out to buy cigarettes at the shop around the corner, he is caught in a holdup and ends up getting shot. There is considerable brain damage and the doctors can not tell Henry's wife just what his future holds. Thus begins a lengthy rehabilitation for the once-brilliant lawyer that includes learning to speak and write all over again. He makes great strides with the help of a very caring therapist. Most importantly, Henry changes from a person with a very dark demeanor to one who is almost innocent in his view of the world. Still, many secrets remain, mostly from Henry's past life at the law firm. Can Henry and his wife overcome their problems and stay together? This is a very nice movie with plenty of heartwarming scenes. Ford has never been better than he is here, for his role runs the gamut from despicable lawyer to a disabled man struggling to speak and relearn basic skills. Bening is also great as the wife who finds a way to fall in love with her husband all over again. The rest of the cast is also quite nice, especially the gentleman who plays Henry's therapist. Then, too, the sets, costumes, direction and production are very worthy. Still, the movie's themes are the most important aspects of the film, as the film questions the integrity of the law profession and also ponders whether the best part of a person is his heart or his brain. Regarding all of the films, sitting on the shelves of a video store, this one is something special. Don't delay in garnering a view for you and your partner soon.
