This movie portraits almost exactly what we do to the elderly....we just make them sit there... worth nothing..they feel like they're already dead...they NEED to be involved in order to see life as worth living... what would you feel like... Also we treat the mentally handicapped lots of times way below their capability. Anyway...great movie. I'd give it a B

Here is what the cover has to say:
lovable George Burns is half of the most charming "Two of a Kind" you'll ever meet. Robby Benson plays his grandson Noel, a twenty-one year old man frozen in childhood. Theirs is a very special story - brimming with love and life, laughter and tears. When Noel visits his best friend Grampa Ross (Burns) who's been exiled to a nursing home, he finds his once spry Grampa staring into space, just waiting to die. noel vows to breathe life back into him, and sets into motion a very unique plan. Noel wages a fun and tender fight that will bring him a little closer to adulthood, Grampa Ross a little closer to youth, and bring them both the strength they'll need to face the final test that awaits them. You've never seen a love story quite like this - and you'll never want this one to end.
