A nurse dur­ing World War II, she en­coun­ters a dying ball tur­ret gun­ner known only as Tech­ni­cal Sergeant Garp ("Garp" being all he is able to utter) who was se­verely brain dam­aged in com­bat, whose mor­bid pri­apismal­lows her to rape him and so be im­preg­nated. She names the re­sul­tant child after Garp. Garp grows up and be­comes in­ter­ested in wrestling and fic­tion writ­ing, top­ics his mother has lit­tle in­ter­est in. Garp's writ­ing piques the in­ter­est of Helen Holm, the daugh­ter of the school's wrestling coach. She is wary of him. His mother ob­serves his in­ter­est in sex and is in­tel­lec­tu­ally cu­ri­ous about it, hav­ing lit­tle more than clin­i­cal in­ter­est her­self. She in­ter­views a pros­ti­tute and of­fers to hire her for Garp. Im­me­di­ately after, Jenny de­cides to write a book on her ob­ser­va­tions of lust and human sex­u­al­ity. Her...

Film critic Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Timesgave the film three stars out of four, by which he was "en­ter­tained but un­moved," three stars as a "palat­able" in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the novel, con­sid­er­ing it "won­der­fully well-writ­ten" yet "cruel, an­noy­ing and smug," and wrote: Janet Maslin of The New York Timeswrote that "the movie is a very fair ren­der­ing of Mr. Irv­ing's novel, with sim­i­lar strengths and weak­nesses. If the novel was pi­caresque and pre­cious, so is the film – al­though the ab­sence of the book's self-con­grat­u­la­tory streak helps the movie achieve a much lighter, more easy-go­ing style." Film critic Pauline Kaelwrote, "There's no feel­ing of truth in ei­ther the book or the movie," and that this "gen­er­ally faith­ful adap­ta­tion, seems no more (and no less) than a cas­tra­tion fantasy."
