This comedy is about two guys who decide to rig the Special Olympics to pay off a debt by having one of them, Steve (Knoxville), pose as a contestant in the games, hoping to dethrone reigning champion, Jimmy. Mentally-challenged high jinks and hilarity surely follow. Written by

Jeffy and Lynn' outfits change multiple times, scenes out of order. When Jeffy arrives with Uncle Gary hes in a dark shirt and pants, When they meet Lynn hes in a gray shirt and red shorts she has a white shirt on and he doesn't have his bag. When she leads him to his room hes back in the dark shirt and shorts and she's in a blue shirt with pants and he has his bag again, then they switch back to her in white shirt and his red shorts with gray shirt for the race. There is not times to change between these scenes. See more »
I got 2 free passes to see this film... I had very low expectations since it starred Johnny Knoxville who I, until today, only associated with really grotesque behavior on Jackass. The combination of that and Special Olympics smelled like it could be a cheap joke at the expense of Special Olympians but in fact it turned out to be just the opposite! It totally surpassed my expectations! It was a truly sweet, laugh out loud funny feel-good movie with big big heart. It portrayed the Olympians in a really caring way and those characters totally made the movie. I didn't have any trouble swallowing Johnny as a naive guy with a big heart, but people who've seen him in Jackass might find the contrast startling at first. It might be too sweet, or too predictably Hollywood for some people... But the physical comedy and naive sweetness really won me over in the end. I look forward to watching this film again.
