I admire the effort to treat a very intense topic like cancer with some lightness and reality and not a complete melodrama. It would have been easy for this movie to go to the common denominator of the majority of the "terminally ill" kind of films, where you get so much emotional music and sadness that you end up crying like a baby even if the quality of the movie sucks. So, in general, I appreciate it the tone of the movie.
