Didn't know what to expect from this movie. I had heard about it online and it was because I absolutely love,love Matthew Perry and still do. So the result was in this movie Matthew Perry gave the best performance of his life, and which in case I fell in love with this movie. LOVE IT!

If I said a TV Movie deserved an Oscar would you belive me? Or how about Perry getting a Best Actor Oscar? Well either way you look at it, this was one of the most light hearted and enjoyable true stories and dramas out there. To say anymore besides, that I enjoyed it, I can not.
