Scott Jacoby steals the show again
14 March 2002 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

In the early 70s, I never heard of a kid actor named Scott Jacoby. Then one week I saw him in like 3 movies in a row airing in the middle of the night. Baxter! isn't as good as "Bad Ronald," but it held my interest even though I was just a kid, and it's still a great film today. Scott plays this kid Roger with a lisp and he has to get speech therapy. He kinda comes of age while going through this. Sounds kind simple, and it is, but it has some intense moments. Good stuff.
