Goofs

While in Vietnam, the main character and others are seen wearing the subdued 101st Airborne division patch, which had not yet been designed and was not allowed for wear until nearly 20 years after the film takes place. Interestingly, the correct full-color patch is more readily available today. See more »

A Must See
19 July 2007 | by Jeno_JenoSee all my reviews

Funny, Gripping, Heart Breaking... This movie has all the elements of Human Nature, both good and bad, and brings them to the Audience in a poignant way. Rich & Art, through their stubbornness and friendship, show that with enough determination 2 people can make a difference. Anyone who has or knows anyone with a disability should appreciate what these 2 men have done for the fellow human being. It also shows what obstacles people with disabilities face and the stigmatizing affects that go with it. It breaks down some barriers of the prejudices that follow the disability community. The Soundtrack is just awesome especially for those of us that remember those times in the 60's & 70's. Top rate acting from some top rate actors.
