YMMV: Jack (1996)
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Jack's angina attack was already really hard to watch, but after Robin Williams' heart surgery in 2009...
  • Padding: The whole subplot with the Fran Drescher character.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Many, but the angina attack scene is particularly heartwrenching, especially when Jack is told that he can't go back to school and he BEGS his father not to take him away from there as he finally has friends.
    • Of the Tears of Joy variant, there is the "Who I Want To Be When I Grow Up" report. God that was beautiful.
    • Also Jack's reaction when he first learns of the assignment and looks forlornly at his blank paper:
    What do I want to be when I grow up?...Alive.
