“The Other Sister,” an endearing, sometimes cloying, self-congratulatory crowd-pleaser, follows the sitcomical travails of a mentally disabled young woman (Juliette Lewis) in search of liberty and love. After 10 years in a special school, the adorable, self-confident Carla Tate is raring to take on the world.

Her affluent, protective parents aren’t so sure she’s ready to make it on her own, but they eventually agree to enroll Carla in a vocational college, where she soon meets Danny (Giovanni Ribisi), a similarly handicapped student with a passion for marching bands. A sweetly awkward courtship follows and, with help from “The Joy of Sex,” the couple negotiate the intricacies of physical love.
