I would've loved a few more details about the behind-the-scenes world of a pro pitcher—and at least a glimpse of one of Matty's actual games in progress—but during a moment when Lisa watches a tape of him pitching and murmurs, "Good mechanics," I believe they're two jocks talking shop.Witherspoon and Wilson are at the top of their comic form.All this plot development takes place in the first 15 minutes or so of the movie.Thereafter, we just sort of watch while the consequences unfold: Lisa and Matty break up and get back together; George sells everything he owns to pay for his legal bills while pining for the unavailable Lisa, and Charles tries to manipulate his son into acting as the company's fall guy.Kathryn Hahn, in a small role as George's pregnant ex-secretary, gives a performance that's a little too outsized for the movie—then redeems herself in a shamelessly sappy hospital scene that somehow, against all odds, works.Only Nicholson, still relying on tics that stopped being funny decades ago, stands out as a mood-dampening drag.
