I finally got around to finding and buying this movie, so I will be viewing it tonight and posting a review of it in the coming days. Anyone who has seen it feel free to give your spoiler-free reviews. It has a star studded cast with Alan Alda, Matthew Broderick, and Virginia Madsen.

Plot from IMDB:

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?

Sounds good, I'll let you all know,

Okay, this is a must watch for collectors, otherwise it's just a subpar movie. A lot of collecting humor (especially the explanation of the grades). This movie takes a shot at Mr. Mint (which they use a different real name, but still Mr. Mint) which is nice to see, since in my opinion he is the black eye of the hobby.

So from a collecting standpoint I give the movie an 8 NM-MT.

From a movie standpoint I give it a 6 EX-MT.

I remember reading part of it was going to be filmed here in Fishkill, NY.
I never found out where, but the credits show some scenes were filmed here.
