Audience Reviews for The Boy in the Plastic Bubble

This is one of the best made for TV movies ever. It's a very sad drama with a great, unique story and I loved it. I highly recommend it.

Touching story, when John Travolta was still a boy. We watched this on TV and were fascinated by it. In 1976, it seemed so hi-tech.

Well done performances.

I may have watched this a hundred times when I was younger late at night when no one was around. All I remember are some pushups and him riding off on a horse to where he would have died after the credits rolled.
