If movies are supposed to be entertaining, this one rates at the top. It is lighthearted, and a delight from beginning to end. I'm not sure what the message is, but few movies have the ability, as this one did so well, to brighten my day -- several days, in fact. It is bright, light, and cheerful, with just enough attention to human foibles to help it ring true -- if anything so cheerful could accurately reflect more than a little reality. Only superb. excellent, marvelous. Possibly it would be a little better if longer. For me, this is one of the best examples of the filmmakers art. For those in search of a little fun, I couldn't recommend it more highly. See it.
