In fact, that theme has its origins in 1992 Sneakers, and till now it has appeared in Sneakers, Searching For Bobby Fischer and Bicentennial Man.
But hearing the first sound clip (I still haven't the cd), it seems on A Beautiful Mind Horner uses the same percussion as on BM, it seems the same as on BM but now the 3 note motif is performed Charlotte's voice.
That percussive intrumentation heard on BM and A Beautiful Mind is different as heard on Sneakers and Bobby Fischer, so probably that's why the reviewer only compares this theme with BM.
