Hmm, Sean Penn as a retard and Michele Pfeiffer as an uppity yet sexy babe...

Just looking for more than "stupid".

I'm a sucker for movies about people with down's syndrome, I guess. I love Sean Penn, too, and that little girl looks great.

Monsters Inc. was great. The opening credits were classic.

Looks pretty retarded.

But seriously it's probably the best movie Sean Penn made in awhile.

Yeh, Sean Penn doesn't seem up to the task of playing a retard. Dustin Hoffman as a savant in Rain Man and as a "who knows what" in Awakenings comes to mind as better performances.

I also don't get why Sean Penn was on Friends the other night. He's supposedly against such things...Survivor hatred?

Eugene! That was Robert DeNiro in Awakenings! And he had catatonic encephalitis.

Oh man was that a great movie.

It could be a sentimental tear-jerker or it could be a good film (or, I suppose, it could be both); it's hard to tell from the trailer.

I like Pfeiffer as an actress, so that's one reason to see the film. The kid looks capable, too. I hope the film is paced as well as the trailer.

Thanks for the recommendation, 'rat.
