    Synopsis


    Extraordinary Measures
    Inspired by an incredible true story, the CBS Films docudrama portrays one father's desperate quest to save his children from succumbing to a rare life-threatening genetic disorder. Working-class father John Crowley (Brendan Fraser) is finally on the fast track to corporate success when his two young children, Megan and Patrick, are diagnosed with Pompe disease -- a condition that prevents the body from breaking down sugar. In time, it disables the heart and the muscles, ultimately resulting in death. With the support of his wife, Aileen (Keri Russell), John ditches his career and teams with unconventional specialist Dr. Robert Stonehill (Harrison Ford) to found a bio-tech company and develop a cure in time to save the lives of Megan and Patrick. As Dr. Stonehill works tirelessly to prove the theories that made him the black sheep of the medical community, a powerful bond is forged between the two unlikely allies. Still, their greatest struggle is yet to come. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Been a fan of Harrison’s for 30 years now. He got an executive producer credit. A first for him. Was looking forward to seeing the film. Too bad it did not do better at the box office. Interesting story, they did promote the movie enough when released January 2010. Harrison’s character is not real likable, his way or the highway. He did do a great job at it, something you would not normally see him do. Credit for the film were ALL WRONG. Harrison got 2cd billing behind Brendan. Wrong. 1988’s "Working Girl" he did a great job & did not get all the screen time but he was top billed so who’s ever decision it was for this film was wrong. First time I have ever seen a part with Keri Russell. She did a good job. Story does drag a bit seeing them go through this process of testing, developing tests, etc. Money above helping people. Good normal extras on the DVD. OK, I do NOT know what is going on with makers of DVD's. I complain about this EVERY TIME I GET A DVD NOW. CHEAP, HORRIBLE & NOT SAFE. This DVD has 1 of this new plastic cases with the holes in them. Both front & back have INTENTIONAL HOLES AROUND THE DVD & FROM THE FRONT RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE DVD. This can damage the DVD if something heavy hits it, while shipping, etc. THESE ARE HORRIBLE & WHOEVER DESIGNED THEM IS A TOTAL IDIOT. CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP. DVD designers who do NOT care about their customers or their products. Plain jane silver DVD, no chapter search list.

      Good movie about a couple who have 2 children with a genetic disease that will eventually kill them. Frustrated with the medical establishment they embark on a journey to find some help for their children at personal sacrifice. Inspiring.
