Bubble Boy(2001)

I never get tired of watching this movie! Jake Gyllenhaal in one of his earliest performances, is the perfect combination of adorably goofy and comically naive. His incredibly over protective mother (an annoying but well cast Swoosie Kurtz - although I think she's funniest as the mum in Get Over It), does her best to keep him as "pure" as possible.
There's some slapstick humor involved, but for the most part it's his kindness and good-hearted actions that wins him friends along the way. Stereotypes are played mostly with comedic effect.
It's sweet and funny. Obviously not cinematic brilliance, but it'll entertain you for a few hours on a Friday night, or Sunday afternoon (as was my case).
