Exellent movie :-)
Great flick, RIP Robin Williams
Awesome movie
Pretty good film. A good performance by Robin Williams, but a teriffic one by Robert De Niro. It didn't fail to keep interest, and can be quite moving at times. Only problem is that it can be a bit mushy at times. It's movies like this that'll give me hope that the REAL Robert DeNiro will come back.
Robin Williams and Robert de Niro turn in excellent performances in this powerful true story that will make you believe in miracles again.
I was up late this morning and discovered this movie on Encore. It's a great performance by all parties involved. But especially this is toward Robert DeNiro. It is amazing what emotions and lack there of that he can pull off in this movie. It's...just a very wonderful performance. By all involved. Completely worth losing sleep.

This was an excellent film that really sneaks up on you and grabs a hold tight. This is the best acting I've seen by Robin Williams and a great side of Robert De Niro, a side of the tough guy that has never come out. There are scenes in this that are funny, some touching, and then the end comes and sweeps up all your emotions and really tugs at the heart strings. Some think that this was a movie strictly made to get awards, but I think that those involved did this to get this true story out to the rest of the world, and everyone here is at the top of their game.
