Whats the movie where Rosie O'Donnel plays someone with special needs.

Riding the Bus with My Sister

Sweet deal.  Now that was offensive.

Yes

Edit: Not quite Rainman

I dunno... She did give a pretty convincing, "I think Will Smith is hot..." on that clip. That has to be Oscar worthy.

Her comment on multiple toilets, and the rather brave midriff shot is at least as daring as any Kathy Bates' nude scene.

Not offensive to me.  Don't really know anything about the movie but if his character is supposed to be black, why didn't they get a black actor to play it?

The character is not black.  The character is a white actor who plays a black character in a movie within the movie.
