The premise of the story is a New York dentist, Alan Johnson, feeling something missing in his life, by chance sees his college roommate, Charlie Fineman, and decides to reconnect. Alan was aware of tragic events that had occurred in his former friend's life, but not of how they had affected him, making him withdraw almost totally from the world. I enjoyed the movie as I think most people can relate to the impact circumstances can have on one's life and how people react differently and each has to find their way. Adam Sandler does an excellent job in a more serious role. But in true Sandler fashion, there are some moments that just make you laugh out loud.
