Tyrone: Flat, flat, flat. Miles: Mom, which you rather? Pennies facing heads, or pennies facing tails? Laura: Is this a trick question? See more »
You've got to admire a director who can take real life and keep it real on the big screen, and at the same time produce a wonderful, funny and touching film.
With The Tic Code, Gary Winick has done just that. This will be the most realistic movie about Tourette's Syndrome you will ever see. It totally hit home as I was constantly reminded of my childhood. Other kids laughing and making fun, and me feeling alienated because of my supposed abnormality. This movie does a great job in displaying people's ignorance about the subject. Those who have simply seen the episode of L.A. Law which featured a witness with severe Tourette's, don't know the story. If you see this movie, you'll be all the wiser, and you'll be treated to a great film at the same time.
This movie gets 4 stars.
