Based on the John Irving novel, this film chronicles the life of T S Garp, and his mother, Jenny. Whilst Garp sees himself as a "serious" writer, Jenny writes a feminist manifesto at an opportune time, and finds herself as a magnet for all manner of distressed women.Written by

As Garp is chasing the errant truck driver for the second time, as they run around the front of the truck the boom mic is seen in the windshield of the truck and it is partly disguised with leaves to look like a branch. It comes down from the upper right of the windshield and wiggles a bit. See more »

In the theatrical release, when Roberta Muldoon is talking with Garp's mother Jenny about the accident, she says "...to have it bitten off in a Buick." The reference to Buick was subsequently removed, so Roberta now just says "...to have it bitten off." See more »
WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP, THE **** Robin Williams, Glenn Close, Mary Beth Hurt, and John Lithgow offer terrific performances in this progressive look at the life of Garp--he's not an odd guy; he's just having to face the common problematic issues that come with childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. It's worth the watch to see the versatile mix of offbeat comedy and gritty believability when Garp and his mother move to New York and onward to find fulfillment. Even though things get over the top with the feminism/terrorism exploits in the conclusion, it all adds to the insight behind the wide range of characters. Rated R. 1982
