It picks up when Jack (Robin Williams) is 10 years old, but looks 40. He tries to go to public school for the first time, and to become friends with kids his own age. His physical appearance causes him lots of problems, however.
Plot: Jack Powell suffers from an affliction that makes him grow four times faster than normal, so the 10-year-old looks like a 40-year-old man. After years of being tutored at home, Jack convinces his overprotective parents to send him to public school. The children don’t know what to make of Jack, but with the help of his fifth-grade teacher, he makes an effort to win them over.

Coppola’s valentine to childhood; maudlin, yes…but forgivably so
Pregnant Diane Lane goes into labor after only two months, delivering a healthy-seeming baby boy (when she pleads “it’s too soon!” to her husband in the delivery room, it’s rather an understatement). Doctors have never seen another child like this, yet quickly determine the boy has an internal clock which is ahead of itself by four times the average rate (meaning that when Jack is 10-years old, he’ll look like a man of 40). Talk about your movie gimmicks! All that aside, what we really have here is Robin Williams back in grade school, and that provides for some good, if derivative, humor. The performances are all fine and, while the set-up may sound inexcusable, “Jack” isn’t a silly movie (at least, not at its core). Williams manages to hold back a bit from his usual barrage of vocal effects and facial expressions, and a few of his scenes are peddled quite softly (as they were in “Awakenings”). There are some scenes that go over-the-top: Jack’s gross-talking school-friends are a nuisance, and some viewers may get defensive when Coppola starts tugging at the heartstrings. Otherwise, this is a warm family comedy, one with a bigger heart than it knows what to do with. **1/2 from ****
so bad that it’s offensive and depressing
What happened? Coppola. The man made The Godfather One and Two (we’ll just ignore Three), Apocalypse Now, and The Conversation. Now? The Rainmaker? The Outsiders? Jack? Jack? What in God’s name could he been thinking? And Robin Williams? He had so much promise! Did you see The World Accoriding to Garp? He’s brilliant and subtle and touching. Now there is Jack. It nearly depresses me too much to type. I don’t know if I can actually do this. You read the synopsis. How could this bit be turned into something interesting? Don’t show him at the innocent and dewey part of his life! Show him in his adolescent rage as a teenager while stuck in an elderly body! Show his adolescent hormone shift when he is a toddler! My God! The possibilities! The waste! The pity and pathos! It makes me want to cry! Instead they serve us saccharine dreck as if they are doing us a favor! The nerve! The gall!
