    If anything the things that went down in this film really surprised me. Who knew that the guy was going to make out with Cassandra? And then he doesn't get together with her? Crazy! But what really wins out in this film is the setting. I was never sure what period this was set in because the atmosphere and the quirky family and the wacky costumes recalled everything, from the 1800s to the 1920s to the 50s. Wow!

    Slightly dull period piece that likely could have been made special save for some very poor casting. Marc Blucas leads the pack. Thank God he has disappeared lately.

    I think I enjoyed this movie more than most people did, but I don't see how anyone with good taste could not like this film.

    Lovely movie, although I didn't fall in love with it.
