More sentimental dreck oozing out of Robin Williams' hairy nether-regions. The only cool thing about this movie was that Jack bought beer and porno for kids that were like 10 years old.

In 2012 when I was just turning 17 I decided to hijack the Parent's Guide section of this film's IMDb page and wrote the following: "Jack goes to a bar and has a few shots of alcohol. It's a minor getting drunk, but it's okay because he looks like Robin Williams". I check it every so often and it's still there. This is my legacy. If I die, keep it going.

Did we really need another movie where Robin Williams plays an overgrown child? Hasn't that gap been filled, nay overstuffed, already? Who's bright idea was this? Oh, the director of the Godfather and Apocalypse Now? The horror, the horror.

I literally burst into laughter when I, having just finished watching this film, looked it up on IMDb and saw that Francis Ford Coppola directed it. How the hell do you go from directing the Godfather movies, The Conversation and Apocalypse Now to making a formulaic, Hollywood-riffic, stunningly mediocre kids movie with Robin Williams? Not to mention that the same basic concept was already done reasonably well in Big, so it doesn't even score novelty points.

At this point, I score any “new” Williams film I catch up with at least 10 points too high – enjoyable enough, with Williams’ guileless and credible performance steering the film through potentially fraught material, and assist from an impressive ensemble (especially Lopez) doesn't hurt. A shame that the intriguing premise is squandered for sitcom-level laughs and it is staggering to consider the plastic, Garry Marshall-lite direction is from the same hand that gave us APOCALYPSE NOW!

This movie is quite strange. It's supposed to be about a boy who is 10 years old and looks like he's 40. However, I feel like Jack and the other boys in this film act younger than 10. Plus, Robin Williams seems like he's just being the goofy Robin Williams we've always known, so it's hard getting into the movie.

At least the humor is (somewhat) less toxic than Patch Adams. Inspiring cynicism about postmodern cinema everyday, it signaled the continued exile of the great Francis Ford Coppola to California vineyards to this day. Yes, it's that bad.

Every parent's nightmare - your kid grows so fast, he's got a furry 45-year old Robin Williams body by the time he's 12. Then he's dead by the time he's whatever age he died at in the movie. I don't remember, because I don't care.

Mistakes - 1) When Jack is begging his dad to let him stay in school, one of the double doors is closed and the other is open. You can see the reflection of someone moving in the door handle of the closed door. 2) On Jack's first day of school in the playground the top button of his blue plaid shirt is buttoned in some scenes and unbuttoned in others.

You know that urban myth about Paul McCartney dying and the Beatles replacing him with a lookalike who mimed all of Paul's parts? I have a theory that the same thing happened to Francis Ford Coppola some time after the release of Apocalypse Now. The only difference is that you can't mime making a movie. This is terrible. You expect Robin Williams to be annoying at all times, but here it's off the scale. The ending is one of the most nauseatingly saccharine things I've ever seen.

This disease actually exists. It's called progeria. I happens due to a mutation in the protein Lamin A which causes a problem between the lamina (reason its easy to remember Lamin A) of the nucleus in the cell and the genetic material. However, instead just become full grown adults at a young age, the shrivel up and die usually around the ages of 8-10. http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg223/scaled.php?server=223&filename=themoreyouknow.jpg&res=medium

A ten year old boy whose body ages four times faster than normal decides to go to regular school after years of home schooling. The idea is unique, but the movie itself isn't very entertaining, because it is just too sappy. Robin Williams isn't bad in roles like this, but it seems like a waste of his talents. Crap!

Boy was it a long way down for Coppola. This is just a pathetic attempt at putting Robin Williams in a place where he can create something funny so the director doesn't have to. Actually, this entire film seems designed for Coppola to do as little as possible.

A sweet, if sad story that takes the "strange child" idea and puts it in an almost palatable form for consumption. The fact that it's Robin does make it easier to watch. And there's still some hard truths buried beneath the facade.

I liked this movie quite a bit. It served as a reminder that life is short & you have to do as much as you can before it's over. Those some elements of the story were strange and skewed, the movie has a wonderful plot.
