name the film where the mentally challenged guy scores with the girl...


Recommended Posts

A better question is "Name the film where the girl -imperfect in any way - gets the guy." There probably aren't very many. Because Hollywood makes films that primarily appeal to the young male demographic. And that young male demographic wants to believe they can get the beautiful girl regardless of their circumstances. I can only think of two that go against the grain - "Dog Fight" and "The Other Side of the Mountain". You might count "Love Story" too. But that was in 1970. If Ali  McGraw's Jenny had stuck around a year or two with her cancer being chronically managed, no hair,  IVs everywhere, with six digit medical bills after insurance, Ryan O'Neal's Oliver would have been out the door and begging daddy Ray Milland to get him out of this "ill conceived marriage" pretty quickly. Cynical, aren't I? :)
