||Synopsis: Cooper is a Chicago journalist with post-concussion memory loss. His mother wants help moving Uncle Rollie, who's facing his own fading memory, into a care home. Cooper's boss tells him to take a few days, so Cooper drives home. Rollie doesn't want to move, and his salvation may be a rare baseball card of a 1908 Chicago Cub. Maybe they can sell it in Chicago for enough for Rollie to live at home with help. Cooper teams up with Charlotte, his recently-divorced high-school flame, and her son; they take Rollie to a memorabilia market. Rollie insists on keeping the card in his pocket, while more than one rascal wants to divest the old man of his treasure. Can the underdogs carry the day? Written by <[email protected]>

Maybe Diminished Capacity isn't "all that and a bag of chips," as a
friend of mine is fond of saying. But I'll tell you what, it's pretty
funny. I think I heard more laughing than anything I've seen at
Sundance since Napoleon Dynamite and Little Miss Sunshine. That bodes
well for the box office prospects of this film.
Alan Alda gives a terrific performance as Rollie Zerb, a small-town
Missouri old-timer with Alzheimer's, who lives with his sister (and
some hilarious but unidentified guy named Wendell in a trailer by the
house). They are visited by Cooper (Matthew Broderick), who arrives at
his mother's request to help talk Uncle Rollie into a nursing home.
Cooper has mental problems of his own, due to a recent concussion.
While back in town, he runs into Charlotte (Virginia Madsen), his high
school sweetheart who is recently divorced from the town mayor. And
somehow Rollie, Cooper, Charlotte and her son wind up heading to
Chicago, where they are going to try to sell Uncle Rollie's rare
baseball card of Frank Schulte, from the 1908 Chicago Cubs (the last
Cubbies team to win the World Series!).
Broderick is solid, in his awkward, understated way. Madsen is the
straight woman. But Alan Alda makes the movie as Uncle Rollie, and
dominates the screen in almost every scene. And yes, if you squint
you'll see shades of Hawkeye Pierce, but his Rollie character is a
complete departure from anything he has done in the past, and probably
his best comedic performance since MASH.
The script is very well-written, if a bit awkward at parts, and under
the direction of veteran actor Terry Kinney, the action moves along
briskly. There is probably more tension than there needs to be, which
doesn't really fit. But when you're not wincing, you're generally
laughing. There are some hilarious lines, and a plenty of feel-good
vibe. Everyone will like this movie.
Sundance Moment: Broderick was much better on stage than I would have
expected. He was there with his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, whose movie
Smart People had premiered at Sundance the night before. Alan Alda was
charming as well. Bobby Canavale was in two movies playing at Sundance
this year, the other being The Merry Gentleman.
