Extraordinary Measures

Extraordinary Measures ★½

A melodramatic film that fails to live up to its title. Too many scenes felt soap opera like in delivery and several characters played their personas way over the top (Harrison Ford in particular).
The weakest part of the film however was its boring approach to the search for the cure often making the movie feel bland and unoriginal.
A few scenes hit with their emotional notes, but more missed than hit.
My Take: A made for TV movie best suited for Lifetime.
