The Other Sister
A mentally retarded girl proves herself to be every bit as capable as her "perfect" sister when she moves into an apartment and begins going to college.
Tries too hard to be moralistic.

Holy shit. This is what Robert Downey Junior warned us about in Tropic Thunder when he talked about going "full retard". This movie fucking doubled up on that.
I am sure the intentions were nothing but honourable but the execution is just mortifying. On that subject, it's curious that Juliette Lewis’s acting style *barely* needed modulating to fit the character.
