Here Today is a May-September romantic comedy - but without the romance. Veteran comedy writer Charlie Berns (Crystal), who is slowly but surely losing his grip on reality, befriends a talented young New York street singer Emma Payge (Haddish). Together, they form an unlikely yet hilarious and touching friendship that kicks the generation gap aside and redefines the meaning of love and trust.

Memorable dementia comedy has sex jokes, strong language.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Here Today is a compassionate dramedy that was directed and co-written by Billy Crystal, who also stars as Charlie, a widower who's trying to keep his growing memory loss a secret. The movie's message about appreciating loved ones while they're with us is solid, but the lasting impression is of walking in the shoes of a terrified dementia patient who suddenly can't remember how to get to work or recognize family and friends. Events surround a granddaughter's bat mitzvah, and Jewish culture is a key element of the film. Charlie is a veteran comedy writer who mentors a young up-and-comer, offering real-world comedy writing tips. But some of his character's jokes feel problematic in today's world, including ones about the late Stephen Hawking and a tirade humiliating a co-worker that includes an audience chanting an insult at a performer. Co-star Tiffany Haddish's character also makes quite a few sex jokes, and part of her rear end is seen when she gets a shot. Sex is implied in a flashback scene. Strong language includes "s--t" and "f--k," there's one scene that includes smoking, and characters touch on the consequences of drug use.
