    I can't believe someone read this script and thought it would be a good idea to make into a film. Offensive and BORING!

    It dragged on and on the mentally impaired as if they were a football team that simply needed a pep band. Whatever relevance this show intended was lost in its slipshod construction.

    At least it makes the point of how frustrating it is to be misunderstood and underestimated, and touches on the controversial issue of mentally handicapped people reproducing. Overall, though, WAY too long, characters not dynamic, cute at best.

  1. What redeems the film…are its three outstanding performances.

    Plunging headfirst into mush at every opportunity, Marshall brings out the worst in his actors.
  3. The humor works beautifully until Marshall decides to beat the comedy over the head and drum us, once again, with this relentless message: "Mentally challenged people in love say the darndest things!"
