I think Regarding Henry is good not great, but it's a nice change to see Harrison Ford in a more vulnerable role. The movie was directed by Mike Nichols and written by a young Jeffrey Abrams, now known as J.J. Abrams (it surprised me, too). Regarding Henry is rated PG-13.

Meet Henry Turner - Mega-wealthy, high-powered, super-successful, Manhattan corporate-lawyer. Not only is Henry despicable, ruthless, dishonest and corrupt in his profession (this makes for an ideal lawyer, I hear), but he also operates in the same mean and rotten way towards his family and friends, too.

One fine day, Henry, in his usual mode of miserable arrogance, inadvertently steps into the midst of a robbery that's taking place at some skuzzy, run-down Mini-Mart. (Like, what's Henry doing in this area of town, anyways?) Henry is promptly shot "bulls-eye" (right smack dab) in the exact goddamn middle of the forehead by some two-bit crook with the precision aim of a real marksman.

Unfortunately, this bullet to the brain doesn't kill Henry. Instead, after a miraculous recovery (in record time, no less) Henry is transformed, like an angel, into Mr. Sugar-And-Spice-And-Everything-Nice.

This character turn-about has got to be one of the phoniest and most sickening change-of-heart scenarios that I've ever witnessed. Like - OK - I could easily understand it if the bullet to the head had lobotomized Henry, and then turned him into a human vegetable, or something. But, it didn't. What it did was completely change his overall personality. It was a 180 degree turn around.

I really wonder what medical science would have to say about this sort of movie nonsense?

Though lawyers have a largely negative and stereotypical reputation which follows them, Harrison Ford gives a good performance on the "what if.." scenario. How valuable is justice/truth?

The big question I ask after watching Regarding Henry is "What traumatic life event would effect a change to mold me a into a better human?"

If only all soulless yuppie lawyers could get shot in the head and learn how to be better people. And how in Buddha's name does this have 4.5 stars?
