Very slow and plodding story line but nice pay off at the end. You care about the characters, keeps you sucked in.

I loved this movie! Steve Zahn was great. He pulled off a tragic character that still had just the right amount of humor to make him lovable. If you're a mom (or probably even if you're not) you are going to cry!!

It's Barrymore's most ambitious role to date. She proves she is maturing as an actress. Full Review
David Edelstein
There's no dramatic trajectory here at all. Full Review

Washington Post
But by the end of the movie -- which seems to last longer than the Crusades -- all the good stuff has dissipated. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
They try to make Beverly adorable, and the movie comes off strained and dishonest as a result. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
As a flawed but lovably lionhearted woman, Barrymore triumphantly comes of age as an actress. Full Review
