Robin Williams stars as Jack, a 10 year old child who ages four times the normal rate. Therefore he really appears to be 40. Jack, isolated from the entire world due to his unusual circumstance, expresses the desire to attend the fifth grade. What would the other boys think of their 40 year old looking classmate? Reminiscent of Penny Marshall's "Big", but the story deviates enough for it to be called original. Robin Williams' portrayal of the 10 year old is completely believable, making Jack a good comedy, not great, but worth seeing to Williams fans.
