Robin Williams stars in this wonderful movie about a boy who grows four times as fast as normal. So when he is 10 years old in his mind, he has the body of a 40-year-old man.
all through the movie, Jack experiences hardships and magnificent times. At first, he is mocked by his classmates for being different. But once they get to know him, they like him for what he’s really like, not just what he looks like.
With the help of his tutor, Mr. Woodruff (played by Bill Cosby), his classmates and his parents (played by Brian Kerwin and Diane Lane), Jack realizes that he is rare and beautiful like a shooting star, not a freak and
an outcast as he had once thought. This is a great movie, but there are some confusing scenes, such as when
Jack is looking at the sky and sees the clouds and the sun moving faster than normal. The audience could be thinking it was just to show time passing, or it could be how Jack really sees things.
Even though this movie would probably be funnier to a teen than to an adult, it is an excellent movie and one you could really enjoy, no matter how old you are or how old you look.
