    Peter Stack San Francisco Chronicle

    Sloshes between comedy and drama, never quite hitting stride as either. show more

    Michael Atkinson Mr. Showbiz

    A swamp of clichés, contrivances, and cheap ham-and-cheese hero sentimentality. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    So heavy on incident, contrivance, coincidence, improbability, sudden reversals and dizzying flash-forwards (sometimes years at a time) that it seems a wonder the characters don't crash into each other in the confusion. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Ultimately, it's more an emotional hodgepodge than a compassionate look at real human problems. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    Hard-core chick shlock, weakened by odd shifts in tone and a slack pace, but elevated by a luminous performance by Natalie Portman. show more

    I loved this movie. I thought the actors did a wonderful job telling a very poignant story. Movie critics baffle me. They seem to hate "feel-good" movies. The reviews I read seemed cruel and mean-spirited about a movie that I believe many people would completely enjoy as I did.
