Robert Sean Leonard,
Jack Palmer is a social worker whose job has taken precedence over his personal life. Mainly, his job is to help four mentally challenged men live regular lives in a home. They consist of: Norman, who works at a donut shop and has a thing for keys; Barry, who thinks he is a golf pro and doesn't communicate well with his father; Arnold, who is into all things Russian and has a habit of spending money; and Lucien, who is into Spider Man and must testify before the state senate. Jack wants to help them, but he also thinks it is time to move on with his life. The hard part is trying to say goodbye to the guys he cares about. Written by

A lot better than some of you are giving credit for...
Firstly i have to admit that i have not seen the stage play of the movie and unless Robert Sean Leonard is going to be in it, i am unlikely to :OD
i happened across this movie one afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it. so much so that Tony Goldwyn's character inspired me to write a short story (i am a writer).
I understand that while many of you have witnessed first hand the performances in the play whether as an audience or the cast, i feel its unfair to criticise the movie. i didnt feel that Robert Sean Leonard was hogging the movie (in fact like him or not, i'd have been happier seeing a whole lot more of him - the man being very easy on the eyes and a magnificent actor). Norman and his housemates were all very good too.
i enjoyed the movie so much that the next time it came on i taped it and n ow i've put in an order to purchase it.
By the way, my fave parts have to be (other than RSl and TG's performances), the 'catch it, kill it and flush it' scene, norman's head having to be 'moved' by Jack when norman sees the neighbours keys, and Jacks response to Barry's father when he asks, 'what are you? like a 'keeper'?' and he replies, 'no, i'm like a 'friend'.
