I thought James Stacey gave a moving, inspirational performance in this unusual made-for-TV film. Despite the title, it must have been very taxing on him, physically and emotionally, to make this film and I'm sure it took great courage to do so. It really opens your eyes to how much we take for granted our ability to do even the simplest things and the challenges faced by the disabled to learn to do so many things over again in a different way. I suffer from osteoarthritis in my knees and while I am nowhere near as physically challenged as Mr. Stacey, I miss the things I used to be able to do and appreciate being able to do what I still can. Unfortunately, this film hasn't been shown more than a few times since it was made 31 years ago. I saw it when it originally aired and knowing it was a keeper, I was lucky to get it on tape the last time it aired, so I can watch it whenever I want to. It gives me the motivation I need to keep going when I feel I cannot. What a pity that in a day and age when we have cable TV and so many other films are shown over and over again in a month's time, films like "Just a Little Inconvenience" fall through the cracks and don't get the air time they deserve.
