It must be a technical challenge to get it right, but the bad dubbing/lip- syncing made this movie uncomfortable. I wanted to like it, but that soon changed to wanting to pull my eye balls out (and just listen.) That is why the original was better.
I cannot figure out why other posters liked the performance of Jimmy/Kenny Holland. I thought he was awkward and flat. On the other hand, Julie/Monica Moore Smith was poised and engaging!
The new plot was great and the acting good overall. It is still a little goofy which is OK. The emotions of the story are real and save this film. Go see it but just brace yourself against the technical issues.
