Shocked At How Much I Enjoyed This Film I am a John Wayne fan who actually enjoys 'chick flicks' but I like some humor...This film is very dark and slow moving but I found it tremendously inspirational and spiritual..It shows the power to be found in unselfish love..and has a very powerful ending...I just sat in silence for half an hour after it was over, just thinking about life, death, love, etc..and all of the implications..One must be in the right mood to enjoy it was fortunately I was...I have always loved Jenna Elfman's comedy, but this lady has real range...
Good back cover, bad movie The movie sounded good when I read the back, but my friend and I just got done looking at each other saying that it was the worst movie we have ever seen, ever, hands down! Slow plot, undeveloped characters, just kind of painful. I REALLY wanted to this to be good because the idea of the plot sounded like it could have made a good movie. Sorry to say, it was quite bad. I normally don't review movies, but I hope you got to read this review before you lose 90+ minutes of your time.Jenna Elfman is a cutie My wife rented this movie tonight, and from the cover I had second thoughts. But then, I have had my pick of bad movies from time to time. I wouldn't say it was a bad movie, but I agree with the other reviewers that it was slow, sad and very dark (people just refused to turn on the light on this movie).
I've always found Jenna Elfman to be a cutie, so it was well worth the 90 minutes. Mr Batinkoff is good looking and the acting was very good in my opinion. The music was also very good. Being a father of a three year old boy, who I love unconditionally, I could easily relate as to how a father would feel having lost his son.
For a slow night, I think this movie is worth the rental. If anyone is to blame, it could be the director, for not advancing the plot faster and by choosing a "low light" ambiance to the movie.
