    not a bad little watch ( I cried at the end) but very back and forth with times so a bit confusing for old people like me LOL.

    Italy's bid for a good old-fashioned American romantic comedy makes a perfectly pleasant showing with "One Day More," Massimo Venier's enjoyable knock-off of classic Hollywood-style thwarted couplings. Based on a novel by thesp Fabio Volo, who plays the lead, the pic generates plenty of aw-shucks moments when a thirtysomething guy's-guy falls for a confirmed bachelorette being transferred to Gotham. Local biz continues to be strong three weeks into the run. Offshore traction on Euro screens eager for feel-good entertainment is possible, as is Euro remake potential. Stateside play depends on marketing strategies, though alert U.S. auds will question geographical slips.

    as predicted, the movie doesn't do the book justice ... doesn't mean it's not a good watch though.

    <a href="http://cooltext.com"><img src="http://images.cooltext.com/1844008.png" alt="My Review " /></a></a> <b><i>"Every family is a ghost story. Sometimes the ghosts come back, sometimes they never left."</b></i> Charles "Chick" Benetto is a broken-down former baseball player who has collapsed into alcoholism and despair, returns one night to his small hometown with plans to take his life. At the final moment, he is magically granted one more day with his departed mother, Posey Benetto, who illuminates the secrets of both their lives and shows him a way to redemption. If you had the chance to go back in time fix what you did wrong in life, would you do it? And if you did, would you be brave enough to stand it? Released on December 9, 2007, <i>Mitch Albom's For One More Day</i> was directed by Lloyd Kramer and based on the book of the same name. I found this movie recently and saw it as an interesting concept unique in the author's style of storytelling, carrying interesting elements like a typewriter that opens the story. It does have a moving drama tone for tackling the issue of divorce between parents who each had a way of raising their son. In a skillful performance made possible by Michael Imperioli his main character looked really depressing at the start but at least he wanted to show a good sign of redemption when he has seen his relationships fall apart, starting with a decision to choose either his mother or father. He would then choose the latter to lead him in the wrong path. <a href="http://s955.photobucket.com/albums/ae34/radboviemiot/?action=view¤t=foronemoreday.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i955.photobucket.com/albums/ae34/radboviemiot/foronemoreday.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> Overall, I can say that <i>Oprah Winfrey Presents: Mitch Albom's For One More Day</i> is a great story about giving up on life and about whether to continue living during redemption. I recommend it to anyone interested in films - whether theatrical or, in this case, made for television - based on novels.

    Though it carries none of the fullness that the book has, it still made me cry. [January 17, 2011 | DVD]

    the book itself is not the greatest, and this movie adaptation unfortunately is lacking both a strong premise and cinematography compared to 5 people you meet in heaven.

    I read the book a couple years back and really enjoyed the story. But the movie didn't do justice. I think the narrative structure of the novel just can't translate onto screen well --- even though Albom did write the script. Not "bad," but unfortunately not a favorite.
