Keegan Macintosh is really good!
Bobjork18 March 2001
I think this movie is very good! OK, it's a bit too cute for me, but Keegan Macintosh is good, i almost thought that he really was autistic! The story is quite good, but, as i said, a little too cute...

an autistic boy who witnesses a murder and is the only one who can help crack the case
jamielee200529 January 2005
Loved this movie!!! Want it at home. Kelsey Grammar did a beautiful job as a cop and very handsome I must say. Great work for Keegan as the autistic child. Hope to see Kelsey in another police detective role like this one. He doesn't, to me, have his Frasierness in the movie what so ever, which I really like, don't get me wrong I love Frasier but I think it is great when someone is very well known for something or someone else such as Kelsey Grammar is for Frasier. He did not seem to be like Frasier at all. I liked the attitude he had as the police officer. I thought he looked really good as a action kinda guy. I liked his attitude towards Keegan's character as well. The movie is great.

Good flick
mrskywalker25 May 2002
Kelsey is great as a cop and is a Jim Belushi type. This nice nice combination of people and action about an autistic kid who is the witness of a crime possibly making him a target.

It should have a higher number and has something for everyone.

I thought it was pretty good!
JenCon18 October 1999
I caught this movie on t.v. and thought it was a pretty good movie. Sure, Kelsey does sound like Frasier but the rest of the cast such as that cuty pie little boy was so cute and very believable as an autistic child. I also enjoyed watching Dean Stockwell, post Quantum Leap in this film. He was excellent in the role as the police chief. All in all a good film!

An autistic boy holds the key to identifying two brutal killers.
songbird-76 May 1999
This is not a bad movie as I've read in reviews. True, a lot of time is used up on Kelsey Grammer's "suffering" and the kid's level of autism -- and that is boring. But the really interesting parts of the movie happen between the two psycho-baddies. These guys aren't just bad or "hollywood crazy." They are mental. Tinsley (Jeff Kober) is totally dependent on his partner for direction ... even though he is petulant about being controlled. And his partner is uncompromisingly intent on having it all his way. One other interesting overtone ... I could be wrong, but I get a sense of an implied sexual relationship between them. Oooh, interesting power games. I like this movie because of these two. Unfortunately, not enough time is given over to their character development. Whatever, they did a great job with what they were given.

A bit embarrassing
Mark Price19 May 2002
Had to watch a film with Kelsey Grammar in it but it so poor it was embarrassing. In his first scene he turns up at the hospital with a black top and white jogging bottoms and a gun on it's holster no jacket - he looked stupid. The acting was poor but the script was worse. Maybe it was the direction because he is better than this and it doesn't have to be comedy. Even Dean Stockwell seemed to be going through the motions. The only good acting was the kid who I thought may really be autistic in real life. Apparently not so he was excellent. You do care about the characters but I'll be taping over it soon.

Kelsey Grammer as a cop?
Marta25 March 1999
No matter what he says in this TV movie, whether grunting, laughing, yelling or whispering, Kelsey Grammer still sounds like Frasier Crane. I'm not sure he can break out of that role, ever. It was like watching Frasier playing a cop.

It didn't help that the film is really the same old TV movie plot, about an autistic child who witnesses a murder, and then has to be protected by Kelsey the cop, from the sadistic murderers. My husband liked it, I didn't. Really not much worth watching; but if you feel you have to Grammer is the only reason to watch it.
