Reviewed byTxMikeVote: /10

Bill Porter was born with cerebral palsy. As he tells a friend, "Thedoctorsqueezed my head too tight when I was born." Bill had a good sense ofhumor,we believe he was just making a joke. His dad had been an award-winningsalesman, and Bill wanted to follow in his footsteps, but was letting hisdisability hold him back. Until he told the head of sales, "Give me yourworst route, the one no one wants. If I succeed, you're a hero. If I fail,you've lost nothing." Bill finds it very rough going at first, buteventually succeeds by getting to know all his customers and gaining theirtrust.

Bill Macy is just fabulous as Bill Porter. In this film they let his earsprotrude naturally, instead of pinning them back as they have done for allhis other films. The story spans 42 years, from 1955 when he gets hisfirstjob, to 1997 when he gets his route back after they have closed thedoor-to-door division, instead selling by phone and the internet. Herealized he missed the human element too much.

The most awesome Salesman ever!Reviewed byRuthlessGoatVote: 10/10

Move over Joe Girard. Have another snort of Oxyclean, Billy Mays. Alec Baldwin, for you and your BMW, F**k You, that's his name because this guy (Wm. Porter) pounded out his route on foot and was the most Ruthless Salesman of all time. William H. Macey , in a magnificent tour-de- force, plays this real-life Salesman who sold Watkins Products for 40 years, mostly door to door on a 7 mile route in Portland Oregon. What a route this was too, as every home on these hilly streets seemed to have cathedral steps in front as well. Why this is important is that Bill Porter was significantly disabled, crippled with cerebral palsy as well as having a horrible speech impediment. He was also scary-looking enough to send children running from the door in fear.

Know your territory? This was a well-known slogan in the musical Music Man, but Bill Porter OWNED his territory,working it so hard, consistently and furiously that upon the death of one customer it was discovered that she had a virtual Watkins warehouse in one of her bedrooms. J.R. Watkin's top Salesman had the tenacity of a General Patton and the stealth of a komodo dragon when it came to getting orders for stuff like spices and laundry detergent, goods that could easily be obtained more cheaply at retail outlets. How tenacious was Bill? He was already crippled and had been run over by a bus, but he was pitching Double-Strength Almond Extract to his hospital roommate, who was in a body cast. There is no question in my mind that the next shipping day there would be cases of extract sitting next to the dying man's bed because Porter was just that driven to make the sale. Until his death, this guy was ALWAYS CLOSING.

Perseverance over ones disabilitiesReviewed byceedoubleyouVote: 8/10

The portrayal of peoples attitudes towards other peoples physical differences, being they, handicapped in some way or skin colour is wonderfully enacted in this movie. How once you accept someone as just another human being, that person is able to achieve as well as the next person. Macy's portrayal of Bill Porter is engrossing, it wasn't until I looked up the movie on this web page I realised who was acting as Bill Porter, I was convinced he was acting as himself! I have to applaud Bill Porter for his achievements in life and how he was so independent. To be the Salesman of the Year, he had a custom base of regular customers who treated him as their friend and confident. Shelly's character was the friend we all wished we had, but Bill Porter was lucky enough to have her for his. Did the movie ever tell us what her major was? Maybe it did, but I was so engrossed with Porter's character, I didn't notice. A great lil' "feel good" movie, despite the prejudice shown in the movie from the characters that Bill Porter encountered in his every day life, from his 1st customers to his last pimply faced boss.
