A funny and heartwarming and a wrongly ignored film starring Albert Brooks and Debbie Reynolds (who is in her first starring role for over 25 years). Brooks plays an author with a strong case of writer's block and decides to move back in with his mother to get more in touch with his roots. The mother, who never fully bonded with her son, eventually comes to know him much better. Reynolds is often-times hilarious in her role. Definitely worth seeing; very entertaining!
