What was that movie he played in as a pizza delivery boy and ended up a gigilo and there was a meeting at a hotel room, where his mother (kate jackson) was waiting not knowing that it was her son she was meeting up with? I love that MOVIE! It was so funny.

I just found out recently that Patrick Dempsey is dyslexic. I know it's kind of an illness that doesn't allow the victim to be able to read. Then I got patrick read his scenario?? I thought it must be so difficult for him since there are surely many of confusing medical terms.
