William H. Macy portrays the adult life of Bill Porter, an inspirationalstory about a man afflicted with Cerebral Palsy who manages to become asuccessful door-to-door salesman throughout four decades spanning thesixties, seventies, eighties and nineties.

"DOOR TO DOOR" is a factual-based story about the adventures experienced byBill Porter as a door-to-door salesman, a man filled with so muchadmiration, persistence and charm, William H. Macy nails down the role withabsolute brilliance.

Unfortunately, "DOOR TO DOOR" is very heavily coated with saccharinesweetness that it almost brushes off as a project that may have beenintended for Lifetime, Television for Women. The story-lines involvingPorter's customers and how their lives were changed by him are certainlyinspiring, but one must also wonder if they actually did happen. I was mostcertainly intrigued by the story-line involving the separated couple andthebutchered tree that marked the perimeter of their property, and the awkwardstory-line involving the gay couple and an obvious insinuation that one oftheir friends might have been inflicted with the AIDS virus, something thatwas never resolved and seemed a little misplaced.

Unlike "FORREST GUMP" which was entirely fictional, I never for a secondduring that movie wondered if and/or how the situations he got himself intoactually happened. Throughout "DOOR TO DOOR", I did wonder a few times if'this' or 'that' really happened, but regardless, I still enjoyed the moviewithout being buried under the obvious flaws and cliches.

Kathy Baker portrays a devoted customer who purchases his products evenwhenshe has no use for them, while Helen Mirren portrays his endearing motherwho is stricken with Alzheimer's Disease and becomes one of the manyhurdlesPorter must struggle with throughout his difficult life. Kyra Sedgwick wascharming as his trusty assistant, the energetic flame of his life that henever got to claim as his own, but probably became the best friend that heever had.

William H. Macy definitely deserves an Emmy Award for his outstandingperformance in this movie. He is just as brilliant on the small screen asheis on the big screen, while most people don't remember that he was once afeatured cast member of the hit television series "E.R.".

"DOOR TO DOOR" is a truly inspirational story and highly recommended forthose who are sick of all those movies about things getting blown up orpeople getting peppered with bullets. A welcome changeindeed!

The problem with attempting to review this type of story is that we are notgiven much room for an opinion. How do we critique the representation of acharacter who started out with a debilitating disorder, and did everythinghe could to overcome his limitations? In a film such as "I Am Sam" we candraw attention to the flaws in its premise, but the premise of this story isentirely believable. So all one can do is give it praise or questionwhether there is a message that follows logically from that basis. We arepresented with the life of Bill Porter, whose accident of birth left himwith cerebral palsy at a time in history when such persons were typicallyinstitutionalized. But Bill had a mother who believed in him until hebelieved in himself. As a result, and against all odds, he became adoor-to-door salesman for products now more conventionally available at thegrocery store.

In these days of 800 numbers, the Internet and megaplex shopping centers, itis hard to imagine a day when the door to door salesman met the needs of theneighborhood personally. To a certain extent, this story is as much aboutthat phenomenon as the life of Bill Porter. We see him finding a place inthe lives of his customers, fulfilling a role not unlike that of a ministeror psychologist, a person who quietly and tactfully linked people together,listened to their concerns, and helped to heal their wounds. At the sametime, we see Bill as an all too real human being, himself, disabled not onlyphysically, but emotionally. The deep sense of pride that drives him onalso blocks him from experiencing a relationship of his own. It is a verymoving and personal story, respectful and ennobling. It needs no othermessage.

I don't really understand why this movie was only made for TV, it has alot of qualities that make it better than half the stuff out today onthe big screen. But whether it's a big screen, a small screen, 2 hours,90 minutes, this is still a good movie. William H. Macy is heartwarmingand almost unrecognizable as Bill Porter. It's actually one of his bestroles.

The one thing that bugged me were the title cards that had littlequotes under the year the section of the movie was taking place, Ididn't think those were needed. That aside, this is an overall goodmovie. It has drama, humour, and some damn fine acting.

My Rating: 7/10
