A feel-good comedy about the laughter, excitement and fun that come with being a kid! Joshua is a thoughtful 10-year-old looking for some simple answers to life's eternal questions. The problem is that no one - including his concerned parents and his 5th grade teacher - seems to be making any sense!

A heartfelt, personal little film that really wasn't helped by O'Donnell's jokey cameo or by the heightened expectations that Shyamalan's later films created for it.

If you saw this film before 'The Sixth Sense', as I did, you probably loved it and were touched by it.

If you saw it after 'The Sixth Sense', maybe notsomuch.
