Anyone seen 'Jack Goes Boating'? I heard a discussion about it on the radio this morning and was wondering if anyone on WP would recommend it.

Besides Adam and the two people from Mozart and the Whale, how many of those movie have said AS instead of just autistic?

IIRC in Rain Man they never used the term Aspergers,. He was labeled an autistic savant.
