Finally a MEANINGFUL Disney movie!
22 April 2003 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Wow, oh my gosh, I cried! LaBeouf has gone dramatic and he does it well. He has proven in this that he can act anything. Hes dramatic in this, hilarious in Even Stevens and mysterious in Holes. But besides him, this movie shows that even people with special needs have feelings and that its not impossible to love them. I wish this movie were available to buy, but you can only rely on when Disney plays it. I'd reccomend this to people who have or have relatives with special needs, or just anyone at all. It also shows the injustice and sadness of how others make fun of special kids. Theres even a scene where some popular boys spit into the boy's hat and then give it to him. It makes me want to get up and stand up for the poor kid. Maybe this will make you think more of what they have to go through, and not just them, but their families. Tru seemed very loving toward her brother and even made a movie about him. My best friend has a brother with autism and hes one of the nicest people I know. So if you feel sorry for them, don't. The only reason you should feel sorry for them is if you can do something about it. But you can't here, so just smile and treat them with kindness. Thats what this movie taught me.
