Plot Summary
Three generations of males -- grandfather Mitch Gromberg (Kirk Douglas), son Alex (Michael Douglas) and grandson Asher (Cameron Douglas) -- try to chart their way through personal upheavals and come together after Mitch suffers a stroke. Alex, a womanizer going through a midlife crisis and fearing he's become like his neglectful father, attempts to save Asher from a life of drugs. None of them wanted to turn into their fathers, but it'll take a lot more than wishes to heal the damage done.

    Father and son Kirk and Michael Douglas' moments together are among the movie's best. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Every scene in this oppressive film has a theme or didactic purpose, but little life. show more
