PS: If Flash no workie try YouTube.
teeny wheelchairs are adorable
Gavin has a tramp stamp.
i hate miracles too
so funny ahahahaha. even if it was staged that doctor’s face had me rolling. and really cute kid btw man
really made my whole week
inspirational and i hope it gets selected for sundance or banff or whatever they is
The real miracle? Gavin did something funny.
But it’s still too long. Try one more round of cuts.
Hahahahaha, so funny Gav, nice return to form!
Sheeet! I just did a spit take at work and everyone knows I don’t do anything but look at the internet. That movie may have just lost me my job.
You beat Wired to this two year old story. Congrats Gav!
Can i get a copy of one of those fliers?
Nice use of “mellon colie and the infinite sadness” haha
sponsored by Fred Perry
no kidding. enough with those fucking shirts.
Heartwarming and breathtaking. Your daughter is so brave; she doesn’t seem to be aware of her disability at all. My prayers are with your family.
Not funny. Just wasted 6 minutes of my life. Damn.
All I can think of is whatever happened to cloth diapers?
if i were the parents, i would be more concerned about my daughter being strangled by that dangling cord near the sofa…
i had the idea of babies in wheelcairs maybe 2 weeks ago and am extremely excited to see it on film.
That was fantastic. Well played sir.
Though my shitstain kid was walking at 10 months… I blame your shitty genes Gavin.
whoa, the whole baby wheelchair was abit over the top. Carry the damn baby, lazyass! Why are you taking a baby to the bar???!?!? no wheelchair access??!?!
I was born running. neener.
this is BRILLIANT!
WONDERFUL! This is so great. She’s so cute. I love it.
Ha! Loved it! Gavin! As always you are so funny! Hope you are so well!
also, is notian being funny or just really dumb?
why does it feel like watching the last 5 minutes of Chinatown seeing gavin with his kid?
[...] Sophie Can Walk is a tour-de-force of cinematic advocacy greater than An Inconvenient Truth and a Michael Moore montage combined — a film that speaks out bravely, albeit in a cute little googoo voice, against the prejudice faced by baby-Americans born without the ability to walk. Above, the YouTube low-rez; here’s a better quality version. (thanks, Sepideh!). [...]
you guys submit this as a commercial idea for target.
Inspirational and heartwarming. One can dream!
The internets is the new idiot box!
I don’t really understand why they put her in a weelchair? They just have to take her in their arm no? I don’t know but I have begin to walk like at 3 years old… I know it’s old but my mom said that is because i didn’t want to walk … wathever the documantary is cute but I don’t get the point… Someone explain to me without insulting me thanks!
I don’t think this is very funny.
Have you ever considered the fact that there are parents who really have to suffer through day to day life with their children in wheelchairs and diapers for their entire lives? What would you say to a parent whose child will never be able to move his own head, let alone walk?
Seriously. get those blind strings tied way up high. Or just break down and pay the $30 for drapes at Target. You can donate the blinds to the old people who have no taste home. You don’t want her to grow up thinking a house with blinds can ever be a home.
Where do you even buy blinds now? Isn’t woolworth’s closed?
This is mean and insensitive and unfortunately it made me laugh — just a sucker for cute kids I guess.
what’s the deal with ‘comments’?
I always thought Gavin was funny, but a lot of his material has been mediocre. This, on the other hand, is genius.
You look like a really good father, to boot.
That wheelchair is ridiculous! so is this two minutes shit.
I guess I don’t see why y’all are so freaking sensitive, he is wheeling her into bars and into bodegas to buy cigarettes! She’s in a mini-wheelchair and not a stroller because he doesn’t get why she doesn’t come out walking like horses do! You are retarded. And yes, thats mean and insensitive too. wahhhhhhhhh!
Some of you are a tad too sensitive about other peoples’ comments. odd that you should find it okay to make a joke about handicapped people, but that you take offense when someone points out anything that remotely resembles criticism about that joke? wahhhhhhhh! this video is dark humor. it’s supposed to be somewhat mean spirited, or certainly it allows itself to be somewhat mean spirited. if i didn’t enjoy that style of humor i wouldn’t come to this website. i will spell out what i was saying for those of you unable to recognize irony. “i enjoyed this video, and while i recognize that there are people who might be offended by this (myself not being one of them) it still makes me laugh.”
jeesus, you really see how bad this site is getting when this seems funny in retrospect. boring and mediocre man, whatever.
It’s almost as if the babies are instructed in the delivery room that they cannot legally walk until age one. Like they’ll lose their inherent cuteness if they violate this law. Sorry, kid, keep it to a swift crawl or we’re revoking your rights to live. Maybe it’s for everyone’s safety and well being. Being the law abiding child she is, my daughter held out until her actual first birthday to walk. To the date. From then forward she was motoring all about like it was no longer prohibited. Well, God speed, sophie, you’ve put in your time and earned your wheels.
As the mother of a child who couldn’t walk until after a foot surgery at four and has cerebral palsy, I found this documentary to be worse than just tasteless. Couldnt the asshole donate the money he wasted on this to the pediatric rehab institute????
The issue of what the medical community does or doesnt do for children with developmental disabilities is a serious isssue. The issue of self absorbed parents who cant deal with children’s needs is another.
[...] baby wheelchair cute-ness click! [...]
thats my pediatricians office! what were you doing in white plains, ny?
i suffered from this very same disability when i was born! thank you for making a film that lets others know of this!
Gavin has never looked more like Donald Sutherland.
Caroline doesn’t get it.
Recently, I lost my ability to walk. I found out I suffer from the late-onset version of this disability. Insensitive people in my life have told me to “just wait until the hangover goes away,” but that’s not good enough for me — we need to find real solutions!
your daughter is a saint for putting up with your cracker ass.
baby wheelchairs!! gavin, your movie was so cute and funny. haters to the left!
The music MAKES it for me.
This was, by light years, the funniest and most clever thing ever posted on this site,
You guys are geniuses.
Please check out:
Michael Scott is lame
Also, where did all these loser idiots come from?
That movie is sentimental stupidness.
Gavin has turned into the “new parent” DON’Ts he used to go on about. Irony’s a bitch.
YES!!!!!!!!!! I love a good laugh… Oops, I’m sorry I shouldn’t laugh… Oh well, I’m going to hell anyway, might as well enjoy what I can now!
As a mother of a 9 month old, I found this eerily disturbing, but intriguing at the same time. Who the hell wants their child to come out walking anyways? It’s a godsend they can’t walk at birth! At least you have a few months to prepare before they start trashing your house and everything in it. Oh wait, you don’t have a boy!
Fucking funny. Very funny. I want that wheelchair.
Dustin Hoffman should have his Oscar revoked for insulting autistic people in Rain Man.

Eye of the tiger baby!
self indulgent 1st world white trash.
my daughter never walked (CP) – but she brought more love and laughter to the world than this insensitive binary filler ever will
Caroline understands – you’ve never lived.
First time I’ve ever laughed and cried at the same time. What a brave baby.
I have handicapped family members. this is still humorous to me. this site is not for the sensitive types for sure. the asian dr, reaction is priceless. like, OBVIOUSLY most babies aren’t BORN walking. cute and silly.
This was lame. My Uncle had polio as a child and is less lame than this. Maybe you should expand your asshole and let the truth/sun/radar machine in?
As with all comedy, this film offends me as a human being.
Why, just yesterday, I was watching “America’s Funniest Home Videos” on my television set. I couldn’t believe how many insensitive people thoughtlessly laughed — LAUGHED! — at the sight of an obese man falling into a swimming pool while wearing his Sunday best. Think of how many people throughout history have suffered far worse a fate than winning $10,000 by falling into 5 feet of water. The drowning! The wetness! The splashing! The humiliation! Oh, the humiliation!
You, Mr. Gavin, should be ashamed of yourself. I pray one day your daughter learns to run, so she may run away from your cruelty.
if i was a baby with cp i’d be really bummed if my mom was sitting around reading websites called streetboners.
really, really funny. my favorite thing on this website.
fuck walking, baby needs to pay some billz_
its uncanny how much he looks like rip taylor
This is so funny! This is the only funny thing Gavin’s ever done, but it makes up for it. FUNNY!
[...] just watched this short documentary, “sophie can walk,” about a father who defies all medical wisdom and vows to help his daughter walk within the [...]
i am an infant teacher at a university lab school. we constantly are challenged with these sorts of doctors and popular beliefs about the capabilities of children. thank you for sharing your experience with us. it is very inspiring.
Oh man! The second I “got it” my mood did a 180! I went from bored and confused to an explosion of laughter. ;D This is super, super funny and I wish you the best in finding a distributor. And I agree with the first poster: Teeny wheelchairs are adorable! Awesome work.
This made me pee a little.
Your child bound to a wheelchair because she couldn’t walk was absolutely adorable.
there should have been at least one physical-therapy-using-parallel-handrails-scene. but that aside, this is golden.
I think this is stupid! why would you want your kid to walk at an early age? They are still growing, developing, learning. Why rush them? They are babies!! let them be babies!! I feel sorry for their next child who has parents who won’t even hold them and are NOT happy because of this stupid idea of why kids can’t walk when they are born. Get over yourself!
What? Hvordan fandt du denne side, du forstår jo intet!?

Site really resource
LOL. I guess.
I like what you said. Kudos.
We love your stuff. You are hilarious! Good luck with the festivals!
I have a beautiful little girl with cerebral palsy and I was offended by this piece. I do not think that he would have made it if he had a child with cp or loved a child with cp.
Oh, I got to this website because it is the first link provided by a researched affiliated with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, where my little girl receives therapy for cerebral palsy. With the link and the title, I thought that it would be an uplifting story about a child overcoming a disability.
