Dabei sein ist alles (2005)25185
Dabei sein ist alles: Directed by Barry W. Blaustein. With Johnny Knoxville, Brian Cox, Katherine Heigl, Jed Rees. A young guy’s only option to erase a really bad debt is to rig the Special Olympics by posing as a contestant.
“I got 2 free passes to see this film… I had very low expectations since it starred Johnny Knoxville who I, until today, only associated with really grotesque behavior on Jackass. The combination of that and Special Olympics smelled like it could be a cheap joke at the expense of Special Olympians but in fact it turned out to be just the opposite! It totally surpassed my expectations! It was a truly sweet, laugh out loud funny feel-good movie with big big heart. It portrayed the Olympians in a really caring way and those characters totally made the movie. I didnu0026#39;t have any trouble swallowing Johnny as a naive guy with a big heart, but people whou0026#39;ve seen him in Jackass might find the contrast startling at first. It might be too sweet, or too predictably Hollywood for some people… But the physical comedy and naive sweetness really won me over in the end. I look forward to watching this film again.”
