Painfully heartwarming and gets Aspergers syndrome wrong., 24 February 2014
Author: Richard-Kurtz-932-573472 from United States

This is a painfully "heartfelt" and "heartwarming" movie that goes over the top and spares no cliché in its effort to gain your sympathy for the main character, a naive kid with Aspergers Syndrome and a talent for pitching. The biggest problem with this movie, for me, is the depiction of Aspergers syndrome. The main character is shown as a Forest Gump type character with emotional issues. In reality, Aspergers people usually have normal or even above-average intelligence. I have known a number of people with this syndrome, and none of them have been as dim as the kid in this movie. Still, it was at least sympathetic toward him even as it tried too obviously to be emotionally manipulative.
