Quotes

Jane: You really shouldn't do that, it's bad for you. And it's illegal to smoke indoors in the State of New York.
Jack: I've heard that. I've also heard that cookies make your butt fat.
Jane: Well, I'd rather have a big cookie butt than be dead.
Jack: Yeah, because then you could eat your own big cookie butt.

Really Enjoyed
1 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. I feel that it was both well written and well acted. The writing and the acting share a common quality. The quality is lack of pretension. The writing deals with a real and increasingly common problem in an unpretentious way, and the acting does the same. Because of this, the film is engaging, endearing, and --most importantly-- moving. I learned from this film. I grew from this film, and, at the risk of being pretentious myself, I would say that I am a better person because of this film. It is indeed easy to lose touch with the normal emotional needs and abilities of people who are emotionally challenged. What hits me so hard is that this one problem can serve as powerful paradigm for all of the foolish insensitivity we may have to others because of our callous and simple-minded generalization and categorization of our fellow humans.
