!Tropes for the film:
* AmnesiacsAreInnocent: Pretty much the plot of the movie, as Henry is an unethical lawyer, who is distant from his family, and having an affair gets shot in the head. He recovers, but is very child like at first and rebuilds his family relationships. He also reveals evidence he'd previously suppressed to win a case.
* DumbIsGood: The movie is probably a class by itself. Henry is an arrogant prick of a lawyer and a bad husband, until he is shot in the head.
* MissingTime: This is something that Henry has to deal with as after surviving a gunshot to the head, the resulting pinched artery affects his memory. The rest of the movie depicts him [[QuestForIdentity coming to terms]] with not remembering anything about his life before the shot.
* MyArtMyMemory: Henry is suffering from amnesia after being shot in the head, keeps drawing pictures... of a Ritz crackers box. This eventually leads him to [[spoiler:the famous Ritz Hotel, where he finds out that he has been cheating on his wife]].
* OnlyAFleshWound: Subverted as he is shot twice during a robbery, once in the shoulder and once in the head. It is later explained to him that the fact he was shot in the shoulder first probably saved his life by reducing the blood pressure in his head. The lower blood pressure then prevented him from bleeding to death before he could get to the hospital. What's more, it's the wound to his shoulder that caused the brain damage, because it prevented oxygen from reaching his brain.
* TisOnlyABulletInTheBrain: DeconstructedTrop in the movie, while Henry does survive a gunshot wound to the head, the resulting injury affects his memory, thus setting off the plot.
