Can be cute, and even heartwarming at times. But all too often, it's nearly insufferable.
August 3, 2001
Amusing enough to watch and passes the time, but it's the kind of movie you're content to wait for on your friendly indie cable channel.

About as subtle as an FTD bouquet in its look, theatrical style, story structure, and greeting card message of uplift.

Yet another in the seemingly unending string of English feel-good frolics.
April 25, 2001
A hackneyed story that tries to capitalize on the success of "The Full Monty"

May be based on a true story but it feels inauthentic.

The film, despite the many shots of gardens in full bloom, lacks visual distinction.
July 26, 2001
It's sweet! Delightful! Trite! Utterly empty! Mewling! Needing to be sprayed with pesticide!
July 27, 2001
There's not much to the movie, but what is there is painfully familiar.
July 27, 2001
Relentlessly smarmy and contrived, and its pitch for the cause of prisoner rehabilitation preachy and heavy-handed.
