    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    The last half is so superior to the first that you wish they'd rethought the whole thing and devised a way to make it more of a one piece. show more

    Peter Debruge Premiere

    Belongs to the same class of cotton-candy romances as "Chances Are" and "Somewhere in Time," although it steers its light-hearted subject into darker territory with the life support subplot. show more

    My wife and I thought this film was very well written and nicely executed. We enjoyed it very much.
