One Special Victory A Must To See!!!
13 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I just saw this movie last night and let me tell you, it's a must to see. I think John Larroquette did an Outstanding job. He portrayed the perfect person that was all into himself at the beginning of the movie and turned into a very caring person at the end. I don't know where the person comes off in the last comment about John Larroquette mugging the camera, I don't think he did that at all. You have to remember he was playing out a part in a movie, he didn't have control of the camera. I think he was a terrific lead actor. The one thing I do agree with is that Kathy Baker did not portray a very convincing part in falling in love with John at the end of the movie. I don't think she played a good part at all in this movie.

I am a coach of a Special Olympics Basketball team and let me tell you, it's very challenging and very rewarding at the same time. I give John Larroquette two thumbs. This movie was very moving and touching. Great movie for the family.
