John Callahan is a drifter, with a serious alcohol problem. Following a particularly heavy night out with a friend, the pair foolishly decide to drive home, and a horrific car-accident leaves John permanently paralyzed. Refusing to give up, he resolves to quit drinking for good, and with the help of an eccentric sponsor enters an Alcoholics Anonymous program. He discovers that he has a gift for producing wry, sardonic, and rather un-PC newspaper cartoons, and this artistic work leads to him achieving national fame and finding a new purpose in life. Based on a true story, this is a very entertaining comedy drama, with sincere messages around overcoming adversity and learning to forgive, that contrast interestingly with the dark satire of Callahan’s work. Set in the early 1990s, the film provides material for interesting discussions around ideas of bad taste today, and what it means to find something “offensive”.
