Plus Robert DeNiro was great, as Bradley Cooper's father. Definitely a must see, especially if you owe your wife a movie or two.
Dude wanted his wife, job, and life back and didn't realize how bad his past life really was. The whole movie he wants it back, even though his wife is divorcing him, has a restraining order against him, had an affair on him, and he's also banned from teaching at the school.
Meanwhile, everyone else realizes it........some special people come into his life.........and he's still focused on his past life. Finally in the end, he realizes the good things he has going now and lets go.
Great performances. Interesting plot.
