Reviews
Mine: Just SO over the top that it becomes too much. A weeper from begining to end. Penn gives a truley remakable performance. Overly long and the finale is anti climactic. The social workers and state lawyers are so one dimmensional and evil that they fail to seem real. There are real issues raised by the movie, but they are not dealt with in a real fashion. Still if you like to cry at the movies this one will do it for you. Nice soundtrack
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A mentally retarded man fights for custody of his 7-year-old daughter, and in the process teaches his cold-hearted lawyer the value of love and family.
