A young family man (Brian Wimmer) and his ailing, dim-witted brother-in-law (Peter Berg) return home 29 years after being frozen through cryonics in this quirky, sentimental tale. Finding life in 1991 to be crude and lewd, the duo desperately seeks the solace of a family that’s learned to live without them.

Some plot twists would have been welcome, but this simple film has charm to spare. Also stars Marcia Gay Harden and Peter Gallagher. Rated PG.

GRADE: B-
