This was a semi emotional movie it is about this boy Named Jack who ages four times the normal human rate. He was born prematurely and was considered special his parents were afraid to send him to school because they didn't want to have him being made fun of the neighborhood children consider him a freak, and generally avoid him. So his parents hired him a tutor but Jack doesn't want to learn with his tutor any more so he begs his parents to send him to school like all the other normal children. His parents finally agree to send him to school, Jack goes into the fourth grade for the first time, He is a 10-year-old boy who appears to be a fully grown man in his 40s. Which causes his classmates tease him until they begin to see the advantages of having him around. They end up having a school dance and Jack ask's his teacher to go with him because all the other girls were to small and young looking and he felt funny about showing up with them. His teacher refuses to go out with him, So he leaves the school and goes off into town and gets into adult-type trouble as he goes to this nightclub and meets Dolores Durante (Fran Drescher)His tutor Lawrence Woodruff (Bill Cosby) tries to help Jack cope with his situation. He finally feels ready to go back to school and begs his mom to let him return she does a few months later Jack ends up having a heart attack in school and once again is home with his tutor.

I thought it was good!

"It's a cute family movie- Robin Williams is as good as you'd expect. His portrayal of a child is superb, and his parents, and friends are equally sincere and genuine. Bill Cosby is a nice addition to the story. One of Jennifer Lopez's first movies, and I thought she was good. OK, so it's based very loosely on the real disorder of kid's aging quickly, but it's a movie! It's still cute. I'd recommend it-"
It teaches the value of time and small things in life

"One of the best William's movies,it'll make you cry, laugh, and think about how lucky you are of being normal and healthy and how valuable are love and time in the life of some people.
Excellent movie to be seen in family or alone (if you are ashamed of crying in front of other people)I loved this movie
The life maybe even shorter!

"Fascinating portrait about a man whose biological rhythm presents an unusual contrast .

Robin Williams in one his finest performances, makes a sensible performance about who enjoys every day of his life with major intensity than most of us. His terrible illness will avoid the necessary and required time to experience and enjoy every stage of the human life.

This is the most touching film of Coppola.
