LAZY screenwriting. It contradicts itself. It sets up Mr Rodgers as "just a person like anyone else", then it depicts him as avoiding criticism and having the "superhuman powers" of breaking the fourth wall. Complete contradiction. And the problem is that the message of Mr. Rogers is genuinely moving, but this film doesn't have the guts to confront the arguments against what he was all about, yet insinuates that it does confront them. Lazy screenwriting.

Saw this at the Movie Mill . Not at all what I expected it to be . Was more about the journalist and his problems with his Dad and his life / marriage / job . And how Mr Rogers helped change the journalist's perspective on his life . Now I understand why Tom Hanks was nominated for Supporting actor and not main actor as Tom Hanks wasn't really the main character in this movie . All in all still a good movie , just not what expected .
