Thankfully, the documentary is realistic; it shows that there's a long road to that kind of ending. But it also shows that the ending isn't as important as the moment.

It's Sam and his parents, who've refused to let his situation keep him from living as full a life as possible, who make Life According to Sam one of the feel-good movies of my year, at least.

The story of these efforts, which have produced promising results, is itself remarkable, though nothing in this documentary equals the portrait of the unforgettable son they produced.
