wow, I am by no means a prude however I thought this movie was stunningly offensive- couldn't believe the part where he's gagging while performing ********. the first thing I thought was that things must be pretty bad for helen hunt to accept such a bad role. Of course the critics loved it.

This was a truly great movie. Stellar performances from hunt and hawkes. Itmwas very inspiring the way he handled his situation with humor and a few close friends, that's all he needed or wanted. The unexpected part is that these people needed him as well.

Fantastic film. The performances are magnificent -- better than I had ever hoped -- it moves so quickly, ever actor is amazing and Helen Hunt is perfect. a MUST-SEE.

Very tastefully done. Helen Hunt is very natural. I cared about both characters.
