Yawn, Sniffle, Sniffle

Retarded man's daughter surpasses him intellectually, in steps the case worker and court system to separate them. Sean (Sam) hires Michelle to be his lawyer, they go to court. Lots of sappy, tear-jerking scenes if you're into that. There were some subplots that they could have gone into deeper but didn't. Which may be just as well. How long do you want to watch a sucky movie? Whoever played the little girl, Lucy, was awesome. I thought Sean Penn did a pretty convincing job of being "retarded." Michelle Pfieffer on the other hand, was plain bad.
