Just Before I Go

     Ted Morgan is feeling very bad about his life in California.  His wife has recently left him and he thinks he has nothing left to live for.  He decides to go back to his hometown and face the people from his past.  He wants to yell at the elderly woman who treated him terribly when she was his teacher.  He wants to hit the bully who made life in school miserable.  He is staying with his brother, his brother's wife and son.  Everything is not going great for his brother either.  Ted meets Greta when she comes to visit her grandmother, Ted’s former teacher.  Greta wants to film Ted confronting his past misery.
     Ted learns he’s not the only one dissatisfied with life.  He’s not alone in his struggles and there are people treading water right along with him.  He still has to determine if he’s going to continue with his original ending of his plan.  This film is lightweight despite the themes.  It’s listed as a comedy but I didn’t find it to be very funny?  3* (This movie is OK)
