Jack Lemmon, who won an Emmy for his performance as Morrie, delivers a touching, if not significant, portrayal of a man dealing thoughtfully with his disease. Hank Azaria's performance however, seems forced, due mostly to dialogue that does not transition well to the screen. The movie might not offer much for kids, but adults searching for an answer to the age-old question "What is the meaning of life?" may find something soulful in Tuesdays with Morrie.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
