As a person with Tourette's myself, this movie reminds me that you can still do whatever you want to do in life and be successful, even if you have a disability.

Great premise, script, and jazz soundtrack. This is no Disease of the Week movie and the producers do a nice job of avoiding cliche. Marquette's portrayal of a kid with Tourette's syndrome is spot on. Some scenes are overacted a bit.

A well written movie about a boy dealing with Tourette's syndrome who also happens to be a musical (jazz pianist) genius. The script by Polly Draper pulls a few punches at times with GREAT acting by Tony Shalhoub. It it interesting that Ms Draper tosses in her theory that 'Thelonious Monk's stage eccentricities may have been signs of undiagnosed Tourette's.'

If it seems to have the ingredients of an after-school special, it's also delightfully unsentimental, yet uplifting, and while spinning its wholly credible tale gives its audience quite a bit of knowledge and understanding about kids, an unusual disease, and the universe of jazz musicians.

Intelligent, uplifting story. Great acting. Realistic portrayal of Tourettes Syndrome by a very talented young actor. Great music. All around nice movie....good send off for the late Gregory Hines.

I like this movie it really goes deep and the kid didn't do that bad of a job. I have Tourette's syndrome and I like movies that have some true to it about people who have tourettes. We all don't say inappropriate things.

This is one of those movies that jibes with my interests so much, I don't know if it's any good or not. But it's about jazz, teacher/mentors, and race relations. These are three things in movies for which I am a sucker, so the movie won me over. And I liked the performances.
