An artist with Tourette's syndrome and an aversion to romance falls for his best friend's girl in this sometimes comic drama. Lyle Maze (Rob Morrow), a successful painter who's also starting to explore sculpture, relies on emotional armor a foot thick to protect him from other people. In addition to suffering from uncontrollable physical tics and loud outbursts, Lyle is also prone to obsessive-compulsive disorder. Afraid that his artistic gifts and his disease spring from the same well, he

In the end, you just feel good about these people, and that's a nice sensation these days.
The best kind of independent filmmaking to shame the somnolent mainstream.
Morrow illuminates all the challenges facing the individual coping with Tourette syndrome while showing that Lyle is much more than the sum of his afflictions.
Shows promise as a first feature ... but overall it feels a little too safe, a little too careful.
An effective love triangle has to involve real conflict. This one doesn't.
A movie that both Oprah and Hallmark would be proud to stamp with their seal of approval.
What drains the movie is that Lyle is such a sweet, noble, suffering soul that he simply sponges our interest into banality.
Linney's finely calibrated, low-key performance as Callie goes a long way towards making it more interesting than it might otherwise be.
There's a by-the-numbers inevitability to every scene, and it never clicks into place to be anything special.
Morrow the actor tries too hard (Morrow will rob Oscar blind!), but he's a stylish director with a steady hand and a shaky eye.
While his performance doesn't exactly measure up to Robin Tunney's turn in Niagara, Niagara, Morrow's clever direction is enough to warrant a trip to the theatre.
Morrow paints a realistic, poignant and hopeful story that will leave you dry-eyed but quite touched.
Although segregating anyone with disruptive twitches makes little sense, it is equally absurd to suggest their actions are so normal as to go unnoticed.
