I heard about this small indy-film but had no idea how good it would be. John Hawkes plays his part perfectly as a disabled man on a quest to get laid. With seemingly insurmountable odds to overcome just to get by, this guy showed his true spirit and how no matter how bad the situation there is a way to get what you want in the end. With each caretaker providing a little more insight into his remarkable life, you will no doubt laugh and cry within minutes. Even though it's a little short, about 90 minutes, there is more than enough time to cover how this guy gets to live his life the way he wants. It's a refreshing movie and will make you walk out of this movie thinking twice about complaining of that back pain or knee pain. A must see if you are into dramatic films based on a true story

While parts of this movie were very interesting and moving the sex scenes in it were totally awkward. Not to mention I didn't realize until the end that I was in the movie with 6 other people. All of them over the age of 65. The experience just was kind of strange. Everything prior to the session I enjoyed. I also really liked the main character. But I would not recommend this movie to anyone else to go and see.

Great true story about overcoming obstacles. John Hawkes creates an Oscar caliber performance. Helen Hunt is good also.
This movie is about sex and connection and is for thoughtful adults.

What a beautifufl and moving story The two leads are brilliant in their roles. So emtionally involving. The real Mark O'Brien must have been an amazing person to know. Lots of humor as well.

Had great press and previews. Very dissapointing. I would give it a 65 on RT.
1. No character development, no idea why Helen Hunt feels as she does, nor do we get any backstory of the life of JOhn Hawkes. Or how does JOhn Hawkes support himself ?
2. Its a touching story but very shallow.
No idea what the big whoop is with this movie.
