Ten stars for Shia Labeouf's performance.
29 May 2002 | by (Metairie, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

I mean he's not even Twenty yet, and he is already showing he's good at drama as well as comedy. He is like the next Robin Williams. You may know him best has the goofy oddball brother in Even Stevens. But in this film he plays Eddie, a teenager strugling with a mental disabilty, who tries to make the best out of things. He gave a real good performance. Clara Bryant also gave a good performance has Tru, Eddie's sweet but uptight sister. Mare Winningham is good has there patient mom. A sweet film for the whole family.
