In its gentle, heartwarming, decidedly unrealistic way, it's a refreshing alternative to hipper-than-thou moviemaking.

There's something vaguely irresponsible about the movie's na´vetÚ.

In his first time out as a writer-director, Mr. Bezucha, formerly in charge of creative design for Polo/Ralph Lauren and Coach, drags his feet, pops corn and sometimes stumbles.

However well-intentioned it might be, the script is pretty much a collection of cliches.

Yet, for all the film's slow spots, it's impossible not to be moved by Henry and Pike's blossoming romance, thanks especially to Gross and Schweig's charming lead performances.

It's a love story in a land of enchantment, all the more affecting because everything looks like this place and this time.

As for "Big Eden," even with its several situation comedy set-ups and leaps of logic, you can't help but be moved by your visit here.

When you lay it on too thick, the audience is distracted by implausibility rather than identifying with the characters.
