    Instead of sugar-coating the aftermath of losing a loved one, this film and its team of superb actors takes the viewer through the pangs of real grief one suffers when he or she has been struck by such a trajedy.

    Great movie, and not just boy meets girl. This is a life's situation story and was done quite well. It was well cast and who cannot take their eyes off of Jennifer Aniston. Really a good film!
