Critic Reviews

  1. 30
    There is something disturbing about yet another iteration of what's become one of the movies' creepiest conventions, in which the developmentally disabled are portrayed with almost supernatural powers to humble, teach and ultimately redeem their mentally "superior" (read: morally inferior) friends, family and acquaintances.
  2. 20
    Debrauwer's characterization is as sharp and incisive as a butter knife.
