for intelligence. Tripe like this again falls into a category where a mediocre actor (O'Donnell), with money and too much fame, feels like doing something altruistic (a TV movie) and pretends to have one iota of medical knowledge or empathy (she was on several talk shows, discussing Asperger syndrome) and she even mis-pronounced it!.

Why, oh why do we in the US have to be subjected to this garbage?- In Europe, I do not see the TV being inundated with mediocre TV actors/talk show hosts. Actors seem to know their place, and concentrate on art, not media hype, curing cancer, or discussing mental illnesses (which they have no business doing).

I see I am not the only reviewer sick of this trend; Do not waste your valuable time or money on this film. It is not educational, is mere publicity fodder for O'Donnell to add another notch on her "social consciousness" belt. Enough already. 0/10.
