Be Patient with Melvin ... and yourself
27 October 2008 | by donbren-1See all my reviews

I thought everyone was doing a great job except that Melvin (Mur) seemed to be overdoing his character's sullenness and unwillingness to give 'this adoption thing' a chance. I finally realized his problem was really his inability to accept his own incompleteness -- his being human and thus 'less than perfect.' Because we foolishly believe everyone else has 'got it together' we feel we're not quite as good as them, and we dwell on our own shortcomings. Lighten up! Be patient with the Melvin Character and you can better accept your own unwillingness to empathize with Melvin's unwillingness to accept his own dilemma of being infertile or, not quite 'a man.' A tough pill to swallow.

I have 'ED' -- have for 4 years since I had prostate cancer and they removed the prostate --and my ability to be normal -- to have an erection -- ever again. That took almost all of the four painful years, but I'm out of my funk, finally, and my wife and I make do -- just fine. I'm wholly whole now that I accept this 'gift.' Mur and Melvin taught me a lesson. Open your mind -- it helps a lot.
