Sometimes comic, sometimes sad - about Simon, a boy who can't grow and his friend Joe, who lives with his single mother. Ashley Judd as Joe's mother befriends Simon and dies tragically when Simon's foul ball hits her on her head. Her character arouses sympathy, and I developed a girl-crush on Ashley Judd that continues to this day. Jim Carrey has a brief cameo as the grown-up Joe.
