Brendan Fraser is always a turn-off, but Harrison Ford as a doctor was kind of hot actually. The whole film seemed like an infomercial (overall) for Pompe's Disease. Really, it could have been done a lot better. 4/10

Not a bad movie, though CBS Productions needs to find a way to distinguish between TV movies and feature movies, as this one feels like a big TV production at times. A pretty strong cast and a good, true life story make for an entertaining viewing. Some of the business politics get in the way and we lose sight of what the story is about - the people or the miracle cure, but when the plot gets sidetracked it rights itself again. Harrison Ford is very good here; it's a shame he doesn't get more opportunities to show he can be a dramatic actor.

Indeed a very good movie!! the actors' performances are both good. the story is great, very inspiring. it's just that the individual scenes are kinda short that when you are about to cry it will suddenly shift to another scene.. at first, i find it a bit boring yet touching but towards the end it was just a great drama. in this movie, i love all the characters! they are all smart which i do i like on movies' character roles, i have fun watching those characters. WATCH IT! =)

When we saw this movie, we brought tissues. Brendan Fraser's performance was nothing less than brilliant. He may be one of the most underrated actors of our generation. Matched with the often funny Harrison Ford (whose performance was nothing short of amazing), this duo worked screen magic in a story of the beautiful power of family. A great watch, and a film to definitely own and be enlightened to.

Extraordinary Measures review

Rarely do we see Brendan Fraser (John Crowley the fervent and optimistic father) act well in an intellectual movie. You have George of the Jungle and Encino Man as prime examples. I find Harrison Ford (the eclectic but humane Dr. Stonehill) effective with witty lines or gestures in figures such as Han Solo or the Indiana Jones. Put both guys on a serious film that touches every heart of every family man who cares about his family, add a realistic screenplay and decent supporting cast and you have an awesome drama based on a true story that is very inspirational. At first I was skeptical if the film would be effective with both actors in a drama, in the end they delivered a moving performance.

Each scene was engaging and the supporting cast did not disappoint. The character build...
