Billy Crystal and Alan King will keep you in stitches in director Henry Winkler's heartwarming comedy about a feuding father and son who discover that love is a family trait. With a script by Crystal and Oscar Winner Eric Roth, Memories of Me is well written, well directed, smart and tender.
They say, like father, like son, but for Abe (King) and Abbie (Crystal) Polin, nothing could be further from the truth. Abe is King of the Hollywood extras. As an actor he's an expert at being a face in the crowd. His son Abbie is a respected New York heart surgeon who's always felt like a bit player in his father's life. When Abbie suffers a mild heart attack, he decides it's time to mend family ties... or break them altogether. So he heads out to Hollywood, where his efforts at reconciliation lead to hilarious consequences.
