Still relevant (in 1999) and funny
23 April 1999 | by (Springfield, VA) – See all my reviews

This is an all-star educational film about "hiring the handicapped". Michael Keaton--a good 4 or 5 years before stardom--plays a filmmaker who takes "a different approach" to educational films of this type. Several different approaches, actually, mostly "suggested" by showbiz personalities. Keaton is pretty bad, and the whole thing has a forced feeling to it--but it is still eye-opening, very funny in places, and sadly relevant. And, yes, that's Norman Lear "acting".
