Nothing bad. A good film, despite sentimental, made for television. Ellen Burstyn and Jonathan Taylor-Thomas are a great due. Fresh.
This movie is great, full of inspiration and hope. Yet sometimes it does so too much, making the story somewhat corny. Overall the actors are really good, though, and the story is both dramatic and funny. And it's really good, so I recommend it.
A beautiful story. Sweet and sentimental but not in a flaky way.
