Director: Tom Vaughan. Cast: Brendan Fraser, Harrison Ford, Keri Russell, Dee Wallace, Courtney B. Vance. 106 min. Rated PG. Drama.
Films like Awakenings and Lorenzo's Oil have set the bar on the enzyme-deficiency genre so high, any similar attempt would pale in comparison - even if Harrison Ford plays the scientist. Ford is famous for making almost any role believable, but even he cannot save this cliche-filled tearjerker of a movie, about people desperately searching for a cure for Pompe's disease before the movie's child hero dies. The dialogue gets so boring and predictable at times, I would recommend you pass on this one, and instead, watch Awakenings again.
