I've been there
20 September 2005 | by nana1026See all my reviews

I work at a facility for mentally challenged adults and believe it or not, I did enjoy this movie...I can associate every one of the members of his team to people in our facility...I can put myself in Mr. Larquette's place...when I first started this job eight years ago. It is the kind of job that you get more than just a paycheck...I'd like to know where I could get a copy of this movie...our residents would like to see it as well as my co-workers. I especially liked Ruthie....I had a copy of this that I had taped years ago from television...but had loaned it out and not gotten it back. Our local county has a large group for SPECIAL OLYMPICS....our School of Bright Promise had a basketball team with cheerleaders from our facility.
