One to watch
16 September 2002 | by vicky_401See all my reviews

Although not the best film ever made, Fred Savage's portrayal as a kid with muscular dystrophy alone is reason to watch this film.

It is very much like One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, with the same forceful style nurse, and one patient (Mike Mills) who knows the real medicine the patients need. A great film
