Good, but not as good as the original
27 January 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

About 10 years or so ago, a little 30 minute (or less) documentary called "Educating Peter" came onto HBO and became an instant hit by winning an award. Peter was a 3rd grader in the original and now it documents him from 6th grade to his senior prom.

The documentary is 2/3 longer than the original but yet doesn't have the flavor the original had. Peter has truly blossomed over the years to say the least. He's bigger now and he is taking life and job skills classes. The documentary, instead of making me chuckle from time to time like the original, made me kind of feel sad.

Peter has graduated and is all grown up. I remember watching the first one when I was like 7 years old and thought it was funny how he could be so carefree. For all that is holy and nice, please make Peter a TRILOGY! I want to see Peter going to college or working and watching him grow older and how he copes with his affliction.

A truly heart warming yet saddening documentary that is good but it doesn't match to the originals half-hour feel good all the way formula. This to me is an excellent documentary but to others, it might be downright heartbreaking or downright dull.

9/10
