Ironic & poignant link with his recent death.
24 September 2003 | by (Whitby, ON) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the height of my crush on John Ritter. What I especially loved about this movie was that it was shot in Toronto. This was really fitting for me as I was living in Raleigh, NC when it was on & through the different scenes, I could imagine being "back home." The most touching scene in this movie for me was when John Ritter's character was finally letting go of his dead wife & the music in the background was "In My Life" by The Beatles. In reading of John Ritter's own funeral service, I saw that the same song was chosen. What a beautiful song to remember such a special person with!
