Good story + Wasted Talent = Awful Movie
Having heard about the story and seeing the talent that was assembled for
this movie, I expected great things. The best thing I say about this movie
is that they at least used an actual Madison, Wisconsin, radio station
playing on the car radio. Direction was at best the quality I would expect
from a "Made for Lifetime" TV movie. Where a musical score could have been
used to enhance the story telling, they chose to use it to barely fill in
Why did they change things from the book? Could have addressed the pill
popping, the affair or ANYTHING.
Extremely disappointing movie. Sure, it was a chick flick, but it had
potential to appeal to all. But even chick flicks can have some appeal to
men. For example, even "The Sound of Music" had Nazi's as the bad guys.
Anyone who found this movie enjoyable has neither read or heard of the
I have not read it, but both my wife and mother raved about it. And they
agree that this movie did not live up to the expectations of the

very touching story.
Bad screenplay, unconvincing
I don't have enough fingers and toes to count how many times during a scene
I screamed at the screen to give me some smart dialogue or content to
convince me that the storyline wasn't contrived and that the actors were
playing their roles for real, as opposed to robotically running through a
script. I loved John Kapelos (George Karras) the most, because I felt that
he understood his role and portrayed it properly. Too bad the screenplay
didn't find him important enough for more screen time, because I would have
loved to see how he was dealing with the reality of the situation (one line
in one scene doesn't do it for me).
I think the movie could have been better had there been more conversations
(not necessarily with social workers, though that might have helped), where
Michelle Pfeiffer, Treat Williams, Ryan Merriman (Sam/Ben), and in some
cases (for good measure) John Kapelos talked about what they were going
through so everyone could come to a mutual understanding, instead of just
trying to have things "happen" by themselves. Joshua Jackson was OK, but
where did Alexa Vega (Karry) go? Was she just a prop in the family, or did
she also have an existence?
I liked the last jail scene, and the conversation on the basketball court at
the end (the game was a little cheesy)..
