  1. 50
    Shallow and blatantly manipulative variation on "Awakenings" in which every plot development is telegraphed.
  2. It is moving and has been well-crafted with much care.
  3. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    For all its sensitivity, the film abounds with movie cliches about the developmentally challenged.
  4. (Shue's) sweetly likable performance is the only coherent element in a film that has the impersonal feel of a television drama slapped together in a rush.
  5. Reviewed by: Stefan Thiel
    This movie's already been entertaining (or boring) airline passengers for months.
  6. Reviewed by: Lael Lowenstein
    A shamelessly sentimental story.
  7. Derivative to the point of distraction.
  8. Shallow and sentimental in the sappiest Hollywood tradition.
  9. 6
    It's a sugar rush that'll leave you feeling like a rotten cavity.

    Viewers will never be molly-fied by this tripe.
