He tries to go to public school for the first time, and to become friends with kids his own age. His physical appearance causes him lots of problems, however. Written by

Robin Williams is great as a ten year old, who looks like 40. When he plays with his mother (Diane Lane), explores the world or has a rendez-vous with the mother of his best friend - that is more than well-played. Williams as Jack: his best role after playing Adrian Cronauer in "Good Morning,Vietnam".Supported by the lovely, warm performances of Jennifer Lopez and Bill Cosby, Williams makes "Jack" a wonder. You can either love or hate this movie, depending on your RQ (=Romance quotient).
