"...It is a courageous and inspirational performance, and Douglas tackles it with his trademark zeal..."
Los Angeles Times - 12/10/1999
"...The unexpected pleasure of seeing Douglas on the screen again is doubled when he's playing opposite Bacall, a star as enduring as himself..."
Douglas returns to the screen for the first time since suffering a stroke, in a role that seems to be written specifically for him. He plays Harry Agensky, a former boxing champ who journeys with his son and 15-year-old grandson to Nevada in order to hunt for magic diamonds that were promised to him by a gangster quite some time ago. Along the way, the trio stop off at a brothel and initiate the grandson, while taking care of their own business. A tribute to director Asher's father, William, who himself suffered a stroke.
