I thought the movie was a bunch of cloying claptrap, and Sean Penn's performance really bugged me.

Nice soundtrack, though.

The soundtrack was all Beatles songs right? You know what would be great? An album of retarded people covering Beatles tunes.

I think, in a way I had sympathy for his character Cori, but yet in a way yes, I agree, he was annoying. it was like they were 'overrating' the character.

It's probably because of that goddamned Dakota Fanning, isn't it?

Yes, I Am Sam was way over-the-top, but the soundtrack was awesome and Dakota Fanning's performance was good.


Reminder: We prefer the term "special" instead of "retarded". I just got an e-mail from the PC police.

"Retarded" is the correct term. They are 'retarded' because their development (and sometimes their genetics) is slowed or impeded.

They would be 'special' if their condition gave them super powers.

Adrien Brody in The Village was good scary.

Brad Pitt in 12 Monkeys.... my favorite.

(and I'm not the biggest Brad fan but he was just great there.)

Actually, I think the term "special" is kind of patronizing. I'm certainly not implying you intended it that way, though, MrPryck, I'm sure you didn't. I believe what is considered PC at the moment (it seems to change frequently) is "developmentally disabled" or "intellectually disabled."
