Jeff Bridges and Robin Williams are dynamite together and there are a lot of heartwarming moments but the plot is very messy and at times, it felt like there was an emotional wall between me and the story. I appreciated what it was going for but the execution was hit or miss. Although, I was happy to see that the climax takes place literally around the corner from a playground I used to go to all the time when I was little.
