When Mike Henry gets a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, he decides to put his news-anchor career on hold to focus on his health and family. After five years at home, Mike is growing restless. His family concocts a strategy with his former boss, Harris Green, to get him working again: They'll arrange for Mike to "run into" Green and come up with the plan, himself, to return to work! With Mike back to juggling his work and home lives, things return to the way they were prediagnosis -- but somehow better.

  • It's a strained, generic affair. Show More
