Deleting erroneous mention of A+ rating by Entertainment Weekly.
The Internet Movie Database mentions an A+ rating by Entertainment Weekly (My Left Foot: The Story of Christy Brown (1989) – Trivia - www.imdb.com/title/tt0097937/trivia). However, the magazine’s review, dated 15 June 1990 and written by Tim Appelo, gives the rating as A (My Left Foot | Video Review | Entertainment Weekly - www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,317592,00.html).22.214.171.124 20:34, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Removed this as the link no longer works. If it is to be put back some context would be necessary- voted by who? Personally I would think there are a fair few better Irish films than these two, including others by Sheridan (IMDB would agree.) -- Blorg (talk) 12:13, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

My Left Foot (film) → My Left Foot – This is the primary topic in a WP:TWODABS situation, as the film is more prominent than the only other ambiguously-titled article, My Left Foot (book). The film article was viewed 48,385 times in the last 90 days, compared to 5856 for the book. The disambiguation page was visited 1615 times. While the book is quite well known, the film is more so. For instance, it won 2 Oscars and was nominated for 3 more and a slew of other awards. It's worth noting that the film isn't a straight-up adaptation of the book; despite the name it also takes material from other of Brown's works and life story; he is depicted working on and publishing the book My Left Foot in the film. The book will be found just as easily through a hat note as through a dab page; the dab page should be usurped and/or moved. Cúchullaint/c 21:56, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
Weak support - generally opposed to films supplanting their books, but if there is ever a case for it, this film vs 1954 book would be one. In ictu oculi (talk) 00:38, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Support - Just like In ictu oculi, I generally don't like it when films usurp their source material. However, this is one of those cases where I think it makes sense, provided there is a hatnote added pointing to the book. Niamh (talk) 16:03, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Speedy support as per TWODABS RedSlash 05:55, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
Support. Also support merging the two. The film is light on content, the book very light, trivially light if you don't count the plot sections. The unsourced book stub would fit as a section in the film article. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 04:31, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
