A heavy-handed, by-the-numbers fantasy about an ordinary Joe who thinks his life would have been different if he’d connected with that all-important pitch in a high school baseball game.

James Belushi plays smalltown white-collar working stiff Larry Burrows, who on his depressing 35th birthday stumbles into a bar where a mysterious, twinkly-eyed barman (Michael Caine) serves him up a ‘spilt milk’ elixir that sends him spinning back in time to take another swat at that baseball.

He hits a home run, and his whole life turns out differently, just as he expected. But guess what? He’s not any happier than he was before.

So what if he’s married to the dishy prom queen (Rene Russo) and has become the absurdly wealthy president of a sports equipment company #- the same one he slaved for in his other life. He misses his original wife (Linda Hamilton) and their unpretentious lifestyle, and whether it makes sense or not, he sets out to win her back.
