    If you are a romantic, you will like this movie. The main characters are all going through major changes in their lives - April's marriage is falling apart and the is 39 with no kids; Bernice is feeling left out of the daughter she gave up as an infant; Frank is having difficulty raising his kids. The movie takes all these issues and more and ties them up in a neat bow.

    The movie has a good cast, a ton of perspectives about love, life, relationships and the seeds parents sow. If your looking for a film with acoustic guitars, family matters, and good tempo without being unrealistic then watch "Then She Found Me".

    I was really surprised by this film. I wasn't sure from the trailer if I was gonna like this film, but I was pleasantly surprised when I watched the film. Helen Hunt does a great job in her directorial debut. She also does a good job actingwise. Colin Firth is also great as her love interest. They have great on screen chemistry together. Better Midler steals every scene that she is in. The only weak spot with the film was Matthew Broderick. I thought he was miscast as the ex husband. I think he was much better with Helen Hunt in the film, Project X. I definitely recommend this film.
