Author Sherwood Kiraly pens the screenplay adaptation of his own comedic novel concerning a man (Matthew Broderick) who gets amnesia after suffering a blow to the head and the road trip he embarks on with his Alzheimer's-afflicted uncle (Alan Alda) and high-school sweetheart (Virginia Madsen). Convinced that they will make a fortune by selling an ultra-rare baseball card at a high-profile memorabilia show, the trio sets out on the open road in search of adventure. Bobby Cannavale and Lois Smith co-star in the feature directorial debut of actor-turned-director Terry Kinney. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I really liked this movie, it has a nice mix of the drama and seriousness of the subject along with light comedy. A bit of action sprinkled in as well. Kept my interest through the whole movie. Alan Alda is great in this role of an aging man with "dimcap".
The story is poignant and serious, yet wonderfully entertaining. Alan Alda is at the top of any moviegoer's list, and this one proves why...plus the supporting cast is outstanding as well.
Diminished Capacity is a movie that's fun to watch, but with an engaging, meaningful story line. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
(If you like baseball, you'll like it even more. And if you're a Cubs fan, you'll watch it several times!)
