Half-hearted Flowers for Algernon story. None of the actors seem to really believe it.

In spite of its lofty goal to remind the masses that the disabled are human beings with feelings just like everyone else, Molly abounds with cliches about the very people it purports to represent.

In a world desperate for any kind of kinship, the ties between brothers and sisters remain an invaluable and often unexplored treasure.

Shue's acting is atrocious, rivaled only by the idiocy of the story itself.

Beautiful as she is, Elisabeth Shue is simply impossible to watch without cringing whenever she tries to do autistic.

For all its sensitivity, the film abounds with movie cliches about the developmentally challenged.

89 minutes of Shue's strained Acting display is 89 more than anyone should ever have to endure.

Shue comes perilously close to offensive caricature as the afflicted Molly.

Shue's character is supposed to be sweet, but Molly is a shallow and tiresome movie.

Unfortunately, despite a praise worthy performance by Elisabeth Shue, the movie did not leave us with a lasting impression or emotional connection.

Nothing feels authentic--not the relationships or the earnest performances from the soap opera-pretty cast.

A television drama slapped together in a rush.

It is moving and has been well-crafted with much care, and it allows Shue, Eckhart, Jane and Jill Hennessy as Molly's doctor to make solid impressions.
